My Vancouver

9 02 2012

I don’t actually live IN Vancouver. I work there (sometimes), and commute 90 minutes each way on public transit. It’s a very diverse town though. Culturally, and weatherwise.

When it’s sunny, it can be very sunny. I took this BlackBerry snap from one of my favourite coffee spots one lunchtime. The coffee’s pretty “meh”, but it’s a wonderful people-watching location. I was just taken by all the bold (crossed) lines, reflections, tints, and the lovely blue sky outside.

Last night, the rain visited. It’s a frequent visitor to Vancouver. I find it welcome and cleansing. Many find it less so. This BlackBerry snap was of a skateboard-proofing rail on a marble wall. I liked the way the rain was pooling into drops, and the reflections.
