Mankind and the Environment

With today’s rapid growth, many cities struggle to maintain a balance between nature and economic development. It is an especially important subject here in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Despite strong population growth, it is a place of a great beauty with a pristine ecosystem.

The recent oil spill in English Bay has angered many people and brought this subject to the forefront of conversations. With the theme “Mankind and the Environment” at the back of my mind, I went for a little visual wander one day. Here are a few images.

All images were taken with the Fuji X100S and Fuji X-T1 paired with XF 56mm F1.2 and processed in LR5 and NIK Silver Pro.

  1. Love the composition, and soul that you’ve captured in those photos. These photos remind me of Michael Kenna, a similar treatment to the color of sky and surrounding in general.
    If you don’t mind then would you educate me if how do you post process the photos to bring out such warm and sort of light brown-ash colors on the sky and natural surrounding?

  2. Let me just chime in to say I’ve found your blog a couple of days ago and it has been a nice surprise for me, great shots, easy reading and great inspirational. Congrats to you both from Madrid!
