Photographing Vancouver in the Spring

The Vancouver area is a place that I’m fairly familiar with. My parents took me there when I was a kid to see Expo ’86, I revisited with my mom several years ago when we spent 12 days photographing the area, and I was most recently there two years ago. Given where I am in …

Where to Take Pictures in Vancouver

View larger map of Vancouver photos In the same vein as the Where to Take Pictures in Los Angeles map I created last week, I decided to do one on Vancouver, Canada this time. The photos and locations are from my visit in 2009. Vancouver is a place that has always been dear to my …

2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics

A bit of shameless self-promotion but this photo of Canada Place is currently on display at the Vancouver Winter Olympics. I think it is probably displayed at Canada Place since it is the main press center for the Olympic Games. Lindsey Vonn probably doesn’t have time to read photo blogs but it would also be …

New Canada Photos Gallery

After two months worth of blog posts, I have finally finished processing my photos from Canada and added them to my website. Feel free to take a look at my Canada pictures gallery which includes sub-galleries for Vancouver and Victoria as well. I will also eventually be adding a few of my mom’s pictures when …

Stanley Park Seawall

The final day of the Canada trip consisted of return visits to the International Buddhist Temple in Richmond and Granville Island, and an evening along the Seawall in Stanley Park. I would spend every day riding a bike along the Seawall if I could. I love this place! Judging from the amount of people who …

Capilano Suspension Bridge

As previously mentioned on my blog, I am scared of heights. The suspension bridge is several hundred feet above the Capilano River and sways harder the more people that there are on it. I barely made it onto the bridge 23 years ago before having to turn around. I heard that my grandaunt made it …

Cleveland Dam

Cleveland Dam has some very beautiful scenery. Unfortunately it was also where we had the worst experience on the entire trip. Many of the people there after dinner were a bunch of misfits running around doing whatever the heck they want. Like this “dynamic duo” who kept throwing large objects over the dam down to …

Expo 86

I have a bronze pencil sharpener on my desk of the Science World building which was purchased as a souvenir at Expo 86. As my earliest travel memories, I probably would have never taken such an interest in travel and nature photography had it not been for the sights I saw on that previous trip …

Vancouver Aquarium

I have to admit that of all the places we went to in Vancouver, the aquarium was the one where I had the least interest in. Perhaps because it was the most touristy place we went or because the crowds were crazy on this day but my mind was starting to turn to mush on …
