54-40's 50th Show at the Commodore Ballroom

I love music and I love photography, so when I get to combine the two it's doubly fabulous for me.  Such was the evening of October 12th when I photographed 54-40's 50th show at the Commodore Ballroom in Downtown Vancouver.  It was hard to narrow it down to a few so here are all my favourites so far of the band and their fans.

Wandering the Streets

I love wandering the streets of Vancouver photographing neighbourhoods I never frequent,  one of these being the notorious Downtown Eastside.  I've driven past many times but never really stopped and looked around and absorb.  When talked about or referred to, it is framed within a negative context.  Here are a few pictures I feel capture the beauty.
