Fill the Hill 2009 photos

I don’t usually use Flickr, but that seems to be the default platform for the 350 movement. In any case, here is a slideshow of my photos from today.

Some video is here.

[Update: 2017-10-18] Here’s a normal album for those without Flash to run the old Flickr slideshow.

What a great selection of photos! You really captured the mood well. I was participating in the events in Vancouver and the events also had a strong and positive feeling. There were a lot of people at different venues and they showed passion, commitment and enthusiasm. It really reminded me of the times that we participated in Peace marches across the Burrard St. bridge, when you were a small child. I love the portrait of the woman with the green hoodie and a green leaf on her face.

My dSLR actually died twenty minutes into things.

I went back to Henry’s and they decided it had to go back to Canon. 4-6 week turnaround.

Thankfully, a few minutes after I mentioned that I was an Oxfam volunteer taking photos for the climate event, they offered to let me borrow a Canon 20D until Monday for free.

Three lessons learned:

1) There is value in working with a photo shop close to where you live and work.

2) Sometimes, shelling out for the extended warranty is rewarded.

3) The Canon semi-pro bodies might cost more than they are really worth, but they feel solid and they have a superb shutter release sound.

Thanks so much for doing this!
