|UNPLUGGED is a state of mind.
It’s that point in your consciousness where you can feel at one with nature, escaping the trappings of the day-to-day to an almost dream-like place where nothing else seems to exist besides you and your natural surroundings. It is our opinion here at VIA that Vancouver holds a unique place in the civilized world in that reaching this state often requires no more effort than simply pulling off to the side of the road, pocketing your keys and taking a few steps into the forest.
All that said, the majority of my “unplugged” time is spent reading, writing or photo processing on my 13″ MacBook Pro. So, it is with a sense of giddy adolescent glee typically reserved for 13 year old girls at a Justin Bieber concert that I share this weeks UNPLUGGED Flickr pick with you. I mean who wouldn’t want to be out at night shooting long exposure shots at Lighthouse Park WITH their shiny MacBook at their side, a glowing Apple logo taking the place of a camp fire by warming your fanboy soul?
By the way, please don’t forget that if you want to see your outdoor photo’s featured at VIA, submit them to our V.I.A. UNPLUGGED Flickr pool.
