Thanksgiving Long Weekend Trip

This weekend was another short trip to the coast, but it was filled with tons of adventure.

The first adventure was stopping off in Langley, I got lost, to meet up with a guy to acquire my new to me lenses.  I am now a proud owner of;

Tamron 70-200mm f2.8

Tamron 90mm f2.8 Macro

Both these have been on my list for half a year and it must have been fate that I had just recently sold some gear, to cover it, and that this gentlemen had both of these lenses for sale!

Next after finally making it into Vancouver, I went to tacofino and crushed the most delicious dinner before going out with my girlfriend to a friends birthday.

Now among all this I was handling the stress of not having finished an assignment that was due on Saturday at 4:41PM.  Ended up handing it with 10 minutes to spare which meant that Saturdays adventuring started late!  After this we headed off to Capilano suspension bridge where my new 90mm macro lens proved to be an amazing portrait lens;

 

Sunday funday, was a later start again but after a couple muffins from JJ Bean coffee roasters it was off to the pumpkin patch where I finally tested out the macro lens;

Also proved well as a portrait lens once again:

Now this was one of the coolest things I saw this weekend, but also kind of spooky at the same time!  The oldest house in the Lower Mainland (1885);

Finished off the night with an amazing thanksgiving dinner and watched the moon rise which I didn’t know was a thing.  I unfortunately didn’t have a tripod or anything with me so the picture is pretty subpar;

Quick Trip To Vancouver

Well this week I took a quick little trip in my new SUV out to Vancouver to see my girlfriend and go to a concert!  It was a couple long days but was so worth it, took some awesome pictures and had a great time! It was a 3 day adventure which included 16 hours of driving which felt like a lot longer!

This concert was a couple firsts for me, it was the first time I had gone to an outdoor concert as well as the first time I took my DSLR to a concert as well.  I made a little instagram post but figured I would make a blog post as well!
