South African Fireworks in the Bay

These are photos from the South African team at the Celebration of Lights here in Vancouver. There was also a thunderstorm happening while the fireworks where happening, so occasionally there was fork lightning streaking across the sky with the fireworks. Duane & I caught up with my friend Mike from back in NZ and went down to English Bay to watch the fireworks in the rain. All the photos were taken using the fireworks setting on my camera, i think they turned out quite well. The display was way bigger than anything I've seen back in NZ.

Pictures from the Park

I went for a walk to the local park today, apparently there are coyotes in the park. But I saw more homeless people than coyotes and lots of squirrels and crows.

This one was really friendly, it came right out onto the path and approached me looking for food.

Attack of the Ghost Monkey

I was just about to go to sleep when out the corner of my eye I noticed that my drink had suddenly began to glow. I quickly grabbed my camera to take pictures and here's the result.

Its a UPM Ghost.
