I recently had the chance to pay a brief visit to Lasqueti Island in the Strait of Georgia. There wasn’t time to venture very far from the dock, but I was quite content given the view.
City of Glass has become a nickname for Vancouver – one given prominence thanks to Douglas Coupland’s book of the same name.
The famous author’s observation about the city he lives in is borne out by an amble downtown. I took just such a leisurely stroll on a sunny afternoon this past weekend and my camera was drawn to the play of light and reflection off the glass.
I have been trying out the five megapixel camera on my new mobile phone. I was quite pleased with this evening shot from downtown Vancouver so I thought I’d share it. The image has been slightly cropped and stamped, but aside from that I have not altered the picture in anyway.
I wanted to get some action shots the other night, so I headed down to the beach front which is usually a hive of activity. The lads in the pictures below were kind enough to do a few tricks on their bikes for me – so it is only fair I show the world what they can do!
I recently travelled to the west coast of Vancouver Island. On the way we passed this bear cub. I was happy to get this photo of it!
