That day a Giant colon invades UBC

cheap on Flickr”>Sheltered from the rain

Today around 4:30pm I left my place. I had about 30-35 minutes before sunset and it was already cloudy and begin to lightly rain. I knew the photo I wanted for my daily photo on flickr. This is unusual. Usually I just wander around campus looking for a place and then figure out what type of photo I would create there. Today was different. I was going to label the photo – “Taking shelter from the rain”. I don’t have an umbrella or raingear for my camera so I needed to find a spot where I could shelter from the rain. I found an area of trees in the Pacific Spirit Park that felt right.

They were protecting me and my camera and I knew that this was going to be the place for me to have some fun (before the light disappeared). I found a branch on the ground that would be a cool prop and took some pictures with single-point focusing using my self-timer. However the focus just wasn’t working, remedy it was keeping the closer branches in focus, while the background (and me) was blurry.

As it got darker, I up’ed my ISO, lowered my aperture and rearranged my camera positioning. I took my coat and lay it against the tree and took some test photos. I wanted to sure where my face would be so that I could focus there. I took about 8 different shots and hoped that everything worked out, because it was getting too dark to try again. I looked through the photos and was happy with the result.

It is days like this, that I love taking creative self-portraits!
Earlier this month the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada brought a Giant Colon to UBC.

According to their website:

The CCAC’s latest initiative, viagra approved
The Giant Colon Tour, viagra 100mg
is on the road and you are invited to experience something truly memorable. An astounding 40 feet in length and eight feet high, The Giant Colon is a multimedia exhibition for all ages that features all of the pathologies that may be found inside the human colon, including colorectal cancer.

The Giant Colon Tour came to UBC at the invitation of Linda Roseborough of Risk Management Services.

I took some photos as shown below:
