Nearly a month ago I came across a marina along Crescent Road known as Ward’s Marina and each and every time I’ve been there I’ve got some truly breathtaking shots.

Bokeh; Comes from the Japanese word- [bokel) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has is defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light”. If I were to put it simply, it means to have the foreground of the image in focus and the background blurred.

In Frame: Kama Money (Ethigal Blog)
“I hired Ethan to take some photos of my son and I for a blogging contract with Explore White Rock and Kid Approved BC. I needed some high quality content that showed us enjoying the area despite the pier being broken after a storm. The economy of White Rock has struggled since the storm and our aim was to show that it’s still a great spot for families to explore together with its beach and stunning sunsets.
Ethan’s mom owns a daycare and he wasn’t phased at all when my son had a bathroom emergency and then got into a bad mood. Ethan stayed calm, kept his sense of humour and level of patience that I REALLY appreciated. It’s embarrassing for moms when kids are being difficult and I appreciated Ethan’s understanding. Once the little guy was feeling better, we were able to continue on with the photoshoot and get some fantastic shots. Funny enough, my son said he wants to become a photographer like Ethan when he grows up! I’d highly recommend Ethan D. Photography for unposed, authentic family photos and content creation on White Rock beach.”

These are just some of the photos I took this morning around 7:30, it was a bit of a jaunt down to the beach and back but it was absolutely worth freezing my hands off for!
What is a national historic site?
National historic sites are places of profound importance to Canada. They bear witness to this nation’s defining moments and illustrate its human creativity and cultural traditions. Each national historic site tells its own unique story, part of the greater story of Canada, contributing a sense of time, identity, and place to our understanding of Canada as a whole. Parks Canada.
What are the benefits of becoming a national historic site today?
Just a couple of benefits are that if the pier is a national historical place it would be protected from commemoration preservation and development. The Canadian government may also invest funds for restoration and reconstruction of the pier.
How can the White Rock Pier become a National Historic site?
The city, the museum, and the community would need to band together and approach the government for the possibility of the White Rock Pier becoming a national historical site.
The White Rock Pier should definitely be a national historical landmark because it has been beloved by the community for over a century. It has been my go to spot for nearly 5 years to take pictures and since its so close the convenience is great . It’s a local treasure that hundreds of people visit daily. The pier is White Rock’s biggest tourist attraction and brings in tons of money that funds numerous things in the city. There really isn’t a reason for the government not to sign off saying that it can be a national historical landmark. Even though we can’t quantify how much money the pier brings in. I am absolutely certain that it’s a big part of White Rock’s tourist appeal, and a key symbol of the history of the city.
I want to hear your opinions!
I was able to get this shot after continuously trying for close to 20 minutes and I have to say it was worth the struggle. I have gotten quite a few questions about the settings I was using to get a picture like this of the moon so, nevertheless..
