What would a trip through a town with at least a few dozen shots of its streets and scenes be from a budding photographer? Not much if I could not show you. So, here are but just a few that I took on my first full day in Terrace, British Columbia. Walking with my girl friend, snapping photos with her is a dream, as she chose the locations and followed. Well over half of the day’s streets shot were of her, but here I will only show the shots of just Terrace’s street scene. The first groups were around we were at the Farmer’s Market, and the night shots were from various locations throughout the town. We had a full moon as well, so it added good light for the long exposure shots.
Terrace BC, is truly a one horse town becuase we only saw one horse pulling a small wagon full of paying customers around it. It looks like fun, but we never got a ride becuase we were so tight with time.
One of the newer buildings I seen.
An old church, that we old even from when I lived in Terrace. I heard it is going to be kept, but sold as something else other than a church. I was also told the front cement barricade was put there to keep people from driving into it. That is weird.
This shot, above, was taken from up on the “Bench” over looking part of the down town area of Eastern half of Terrace. This was a about a one second exposure taken just before sunset. You can the light trails from a moving vehicle on the right of the image.
Now we get into the night shots!
The above shot is the Skeena Mall, looking North East at the full moon in the centre of the image. This is about a five second exposure, and you can see light trails of a car driving by.
The main street in Terrace, BC: (Name Later), looking East bound, with the Mall to my right.
Above, on (main street) looking West bound, standing on the North side. More information later.
Above, the Terrace Hotel (Best Western), looking South East. I love the blue lights on the building.
This last shot (above) is taken from the Sandy Overpass, looking North at the Skeena Mall. We were standing on South side of the road. This shot took a ten second exposure, and you can see light trails from passing trucks. I really like this shot!
