Gateway to Canadian Pacific Port

My friend Ed told me if you want good photographs you have to take chances. Use your two legs and move to make composition and fill the frame. Worry about what you didn't capture rather than how or where you got the shot. So I took his advice on this shoot and was lucky... I realized that most likely after 9/11 there were restrictions on photography around the Port of Vancouver but I managed to fit in an hour before security showed up and told me I wasn't allowed. Now I don't feel like anything I shot that day is top secret so I don't feel bad about being there. I do feel that showing the beauty of industry is a good idea as it is such a big part of our urban/Pacific environment. Thanks Port of Vancouver.
