The Words Don’t Fit The Picture

stormtroopervancouver

5DMKII, 16-35mm, f/3.2 @ 1/20, ISO 6400.

I was feeling a bit down about the Olympics being over and then this happened. I guess there still is a bit of awesome left in Vancouver.

From this I learnt two valuable lessons:

  1. Don’t despair. You might run into a storm trooper outside your apartment; and
  2. Never leave home without a camera.

    Picture’s not available right now :(

    Also on the note of always having your camera with you, how do you best manage that? I find that a lot of times when I leave work I wish I had it with me because of a cool sunset or what not. Would you suggest just always leaving it in the trunk of your car or something?

    Cheers
