Photographing The Butchart Gardens in the Spring

Similar to what I wrote in my previous post, Photographing Vancouver in the Spring, I had photographed The Butchart Gardens in the summer previously but was my first time visiting during the spring. On my previous visit, we arrived when it opened and spent all day there shooting photos until the late evening hours since they …

Photographing Vancouver in the Spring

The Vancouver area is a place that I’m fairly familiar with. My parents took me there when I was a kid to see Expo ’86, I revisited with my mom several years ago when we spent 12 days photographing the area, and I was most recently there two years ago. Given where I am in …

Garden Calendar Cover Photo

My Butchart Gardens photo of the Sunken Garden is on the front of the Gardens 2012 Calendar. There are about a million of these out there so maybe you might have seen one or maybe not, but it’s always fun to see your own photography published in print. This is actually my 2nd photo from …

Ross Fountain Video – Butchart Gardens

Ross Fountain Video – Butchart Gardens from Richard Wong. After my recent experience with coyotes howling at Joshua Tree National Park late at night while photographing the Milky Way, I realized how limiting still photography is when it comes to capturing the true experience of the outdoors. Still photography in my opinion has much more …

Where to Take Pictures in Vancouver

2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics

A bit of shameless self-promotion but this photo of Canada Place is currently on display at the Vancouver Winter Olympics. I think it is probably displayed at Canada Place since it is the main press center for the Olympic Games. Lindsey Vonn probably doesn’t have time to read photo blogs but it would also be …

New Canada Photos Gallery

After two months worth of blog posts, I have finally finished processing my photos from Canada and added them to my website. Feel free to take a look at my Canada pictures gallery which includes sub-galleries for Vancouver and Victoria as well. I will also eventually be adding a few of my mom’s pictures when …

Stanley Park Seawall

The final day of the Canada trip consisted of return visits to the International Buddhist Temple in Richmond and Granville Island, and an evening along the Seawall in Stanley Park. I would spend every day riding a bike along the Seawall if I could. I love this place! Judging from the amount of people who …

International Buddhist Temple

After arriving back on mainland British Columbia from Vancouver Island the day before, as we were heading to the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, we passed the International Buddhist Temple. It looked like an interesting place but didn’t stop to look inside. So the following day, we had another family gathering planned for dinner so my …
