Trying to be tourist in my own town.


On average, I spend three weeks a year on vacation to some warm or cold destination and most times I wish I could spend more time away, but then I come back home and realize how lucky I am to live in Vancouver.

Downtown Vancouver From Stanley Park

Downtown Vancouver From Stanley Park, in Spring

Seeing as I live here, you would think I could take a few decent pictures.  Here are some of my projects:


One Tower Of The Lions Gate Bridge
Stanley Park

Vancouver's Crown Jewel - this park dominates downtown and reminds Vancouver that nature really isn't that far away. 
Pair Of Water Lilies
VanDusen Botanical Gardens

A great place to go with a camera - the garden is constantly changing through the seasons and has sights to see big and small.
BC Place With Lights On The Water
False Creek

Most of my time in Vancouver I have lived somewhere close to false creek.  It has a seawall, three bridges and plenty of opportunities to keep you busy.
Koy Under Lily Pads
Chinatown

Chinatown is one of the most distinct neighborhoods in Vancouver.  Much of the architecture is is distinct and the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden is there, but you really go for the community - the parades, the shopping and the restaurants.
Pinwheels Over City
View From My Apartment

Back in my "without kids" days, I had a pretty nice view from my apartment.  Since my camera was always close by, it was easy to take photos as the weather and seasons changed.
Little Orange Caps
Mushrooms

Okay, Vancouver is a little wet. Sometimes mushrooms pop up.
Burrard Street Bridge in Snow
Vancouver in Snow

Snow in Vancouver is rare (sometimes it skips a year), and it generally only lasts a day or two, so when it does snows (and you know the whole city shuts down), it's nice to get out for a walk.
Fireworks Over Vancouver From Fairview Slopes
Fireworks

Vancouver receives more than it's fair share of fireworks.

Flowers in
Vancouver Public Parks

If you don't mind not paying the entrance fees, Vancouver has many beautiful places to see flowers.
