Rails and Reflections


Time to leave the Gulf of Georgia Cannery. Be sure to visit if you're in the area some day!

Got guts?


At the cutting table, where the gutted fish were cut into rounds to go into the cans.

I love this glass wall on the Symphony housing block. Why this motif? It's located next to the Orpheum theatre, home of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

iRobot? No! I, Robot


This is the section of street that was turned into the futuristic city in the film "I, Robot". Watch it; you won't believe it's the same place.

Summer Greens


One of the last few evenings that can be enjoyed for hours at the Quay, just sitting and reading in the setting sun. Already the weather is set to turn cloudy for who knows how long.

When temperatures are pushing 30C, it's time to leave the city and head for the forests, lakes and mountains. I found a beautiful view across Cheakamus Lake in Garibaldi Provincial Park, near Whistler.

In front of this apartment building about 8 large fir trees were cut down. They were tall and old and gave the building shade from the sun. I wonder what reason there was for their removal.

A shot from the SkyTrain of my favourite little island at the confluence of the Brunette and Fraser rivers. At this time of year there is a profusion of pink flowers (either fireweed or a variety of sweet pea) around the edge.

In the top right of the photo the two pillars that are part of the new Port Mann suspension bridge can be seen.

Sometimes neighbourhood traffic calming doesn't always seem simple.

Pop of Colour


Sometimes I wonder if this construction will ever finish. Again, you can see that corners are cut (so to speak) as there will be only an up escalator with stairs down. I fear that soon these coloured buildings will appear so grungy and dated, and may not complement the rest of the downtown area that has more classical architecture. Also, creating so much available outdoor space protected from the rain near to a SkyTrain station usually means an increase in "undesirable" behaviours.
