Chevron Summer Movie Series

One of the most wonderful aspects of this past summer has been the opportunity to volunteer at a number of public events: Make Music Vancouver Festival, BC SPCA’s Paws for a Cause, and the Chevron Summer Movie Series. The movie series benefits a number of organizations over the weeks it runs, including the Firefighter’s and Police foundations: I volunteered at these events for the Police Foundation, collecting donations, helping with games, site teardown and clean up, and of course, some photography.

I’ve selected just a few photos of the event August 20, where the movie playing was “Austin Powers”. I’d never seen it before. More of the event on Flickr.

Water’s edge

It’s a very rare occasion where I don’t have a camera near to hand. On those days that I don’t wish to carry the large unit and lenses, I have a Canon pocket camera with optical zoom that does in a pinch, and thankfully captures many scenes that remind me of places to return and study in greater detail.

Pacific Spirit Regional Park is a wonderful place to venture for an easy hike, with groomed trails and stairs for the steeper sections of the trails down to the water from the cliffs near the University of British Columbia. The same trails lead to beautiful beaches, though I can’t imagine heading there with a camera at all!
