This is the second image chosen by Photohaus for exhibition in June 2014. I shot this on 13-Feb-2010 which was both Chinese New Year and also the opening day of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. It was a glorious day in Vancouver – not something we can count on at that time of year – and the whole city was abuzz with excitement. We went into town on the Skytrain and wandered around the Olympic venues and down into China Town.
These umbrellas – part of some decor for a private party – caught my eye. It is a happy image for me.
