Expect the Unexpected

Update, September 14 - this image was selected as a favourite for August, 2014 by the editors of Get Olympus - Users Photo's of the Month.

Sometimes the best photo is not the one you set out to make. I was doing a wide-angle view of Vancouver's harbour when, seeing this scene developing, I quickly switched to a telephoto lens and created this sparse but powerful industrial moment. The last light of the day was going, the boat was moving fast, the bridge that I was on was vibrating from passing traffic.  I boosted the ISO and went with a hand-held fast shutter speed.
