City light Wednesdays vol. 23


I think one of the most vertical cities is New York City. I haven't been to Tokyo though, where the verticality is supposedly out of this world. Here is an evening shot taken in NYC.

Olympic Stadium - The Big O


In many ways the stadium in Montreal is especially pretty during winter time. This photo was taken exactly today few years ago. Read more from wikipedia.org about the structure: 

The Olympic Stadium (FrenchStade Olympique de Montréal) is a multi-purpose stadium in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district of Montreal, Quebec, Canada built as the main venue for the 1976 Summer Olympics. The stadium is nicknamed "The Big O", a reference to both its name and to the doughnut-shape of the permanent component of the stadium's roof; "The Big Owe" name has also been used to reference the astronomical cost of the stadium and the 1976 Olympics as a whole.
The stadium is the largest by seating capacity in Canada. After the Olympics, it became the home of Montreal's professional baseball and Canadian football teams. Since 2004, when the Montreal Expos relocated to Washington, D.C., the stadium has no main tenant, and with a history of financial and structural problems, is largely seen as a white elephant. It currently serves as a 65,255 seat multipurpose facility for special events (e.g. concerts, trade shows), and continues to serve as a venue for playoff and Grey Cup games hosted by the Montreal Alouettes. The Montreal Impact also use the stadium on occasion when a larger capacity venue is needed or when the weather restricts outdoor play in the spring months.
The tower incorporated into the base of the stadium, called the Montreal Tower, is the tallest inclined tower in the world at 175 metres (574 ft). The architect was Roger Taillibert.

Tree lichen


I do not know the Estonian word of that hanging tree lichen, but it hangs loosely from trees and with a shallow depth of field creates wonderful forms for great photography. Found in Estonia.

222 Jarvis Street


This is not the best photo of the Jarvis 222 on the left, but it should give you some idea of the structure. It is under renovation now and after the works have completed this spring, 2014 it will be the greenest government building in Canada...or was it in North America. Anyway, this is good, but since I am not getting to experience any of the green innovations, I am left to admire the outside of the building. The architect of the 1971 year Brutalist style building is Maxwell Miller. 
I should take more photos there.
You can read more from wikipedia.org.

Waterfall


Don't go chasing waterfalls.
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to.
I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all, 
But I think you're moving too fast.

Star-trail photography


I have always wanted to star-trail photography, but not for once the time or the place has been right. Last year in August it was. It may seem like a harmless photography, as you just have to set your camera on a sturdy tripod, find a nice frame to shoot continuously after every 30 seconds and then stack them together on Photoshop. 

In town it is hard to find an interesting spot where to point your lens, considering that it has to face the North Star, also it is hard to make your camera to shoot after 30 second for hours, as the button may give up sooner or later the pressure given to it. Last, but not the least the condense that will happen on your lens - the worst problem. 

I can only provide the link I followed to create this, not so wonderful first real star-trail in my life: http://petapixel.com/2013/03/18/how-to-photograph-star-trails-from-start-to-finish/
The rest is up to you.

Good luck!

Mis toimub eesti keelega?



Lugesin ühte artiklit ning üllatusin sügavalt, kui lugesin kuidas Tõnu Pedaru kirjutab. Kas eesti keeles on sõnad otsa saanud või püüd popp ja noortepärane olla, ületab hea maitse piirid?

Väkk.
