Photographer's Note

Getting back to more Neon in Vancouver. I took this photo yesterday, I new it would be the best time as most people would be staying at home.

The people you see in the photo are basically the only people that walked past me the entire time.

Ok, so...as for the title...I've posted many photos of Stanley Park...this is Stanley Theatre.

It was opened back in 1930, created in the Art Deco style, and it was actually a Movie Theatre for 60 years. I did some research and found out that Admission price was between 10 cents and 40 cents depending on the seat.

Due to poor revenue, the movie theatre was closed in 1991. After years of threats to have it torn down, in 1998 it was converted to a Stage Theatre.

I have seen many plays here, it runs all year round, I've seen Beauty and the Beast, Momma Mia...and several more.

As for the photo itself, I've always wanted to capture the Neon in a unique way, I figured out this composition using a glass door next to it. I'm using my tripod at blue hour, and I couldn't get any closer - I wish I could because its not 100% down the middle each way, but that's ok.

These reflection shots using glass walls are so much fun. You just have to keep an eye out for them.

I went to capture this now because of the Covid situation. I knew there wouldn't be any people, I knew the Theatre would be closed. There is NO WAY i'd be able to get this shot during the evening as there would be dozens and dozens of people hanging around here buying tickets, lining up to get inside for shows etc...so in a way it was a weird perfect timing.

I have more shots of it, and better shots in my opinion...with trailing car lights reflected onto the glass. But instead I went with this version, with the ghosted people walking by. I'll post the others in my next post as a WS. For now, check out some more WS photos.
