Danielle Nicol’s (fb, Instagram) photography, when I first saw it, made me immediately recognize how real she is. Perhaps it’s because a lot of her work is self portraits, but there’s no denying that it’s human and exposed. She has a beautiful balance of catered perfection and half hazard causality. The very essence that makes cool I guess. I think this speaks a little bit for the fact that it’s mostly in black and white, which always eliminates any distractions and gets right to the point.
Vancouver is world known for being a beautiful city, next to the Pacific Ocean, Coastal Mountains, Whistler, and much much more. Sometimes it’s hard to get a great idea of what the city is like, without actually being here.
One of the things that attracted me to the city before I moved here was the night life. It could be midnight, and walking around you would still see people bustling about, going on as thought midnight wasn’t the hour to be sipping tea in front of the fireplace preparing for bed. This is a beautiful thing.
Here are some pictures that capture that feeling, just a little bit.
