VanDusen BOTANICAL GARDENS in the Summer - Vancouver

The scent of flowers, trees, freshly-turned dirt and humus are often present, adding to the beauty of the Garden. It takes two hours for a leisurely walk through. Don't miss it if you are ever in Vancouver. UNFINISHED ALBUM. Will I ever get this one finished???

VanDusen BOTANICAL GARDENS Festival of Lights, Dec & Jan - Vancouver

It gets dark very early here, which is a blessing when the Festival of Lights is on at Van Dusen Gardens over the Christmas season. The site is closed during the day but by 4:30pm it is dark enough to allow the public in to view a carpet of colored lights within a large part of the Garden. A feeling of magic prevails.

Vancouver Harbour CRUISE

This dinner cruise begins at False Creek behind the Plaza of Nations, passes beneath three bridges, and mingles with a variety of other water vessels on its way to the open waters, where we turn around in the twilight to return to the dock again. Photos are in the order that the cruise progresses. You will see our beautiful city of Vancouver as we see it from our cruise vessel. Note: All photographs are copyrighted.

Steveston

Steveston is about a half hour drive south from Vancouver, BC. It is very near Finn Slough, and it neighbors Richmond. On this outing we walk along Steveston's waterfront towards the historic area, which has a lot of interest, but I have no time tonight to add the historic part of the commentary. Please come back later. Photos were snapped in February, 2008. Note: All photographs are copyrighted.

SNOW in Vancouver - an unusual occurrence

Here we get lots of rain in the winter, and very little snow, and often it melts before the next day has passed. This winter (Christmas season, 2008-2009) we have the most snow that anyone can remember. For two weeks it has snowed almost daily, sometimes all day long. The roads and walkways were slippery and old trees break off and/or fall over from the weight of the wet snow. A tree fell on our 'skytrain' tracks (subway) so that people could not get home from work or shopping to be with their families on Christmas Eve. The airport was not prepared to have such a great amount of snow so all air traffic was halted. Our buses can usually travel well in our usual small amounts of snow but on this occasion there was too much of it all at once so that many of the buses were stuck on their route and could not take travellers to their destination. I am used to lots of snow, having lived in colder locations in the past, but this is an unusual situation we had here in Vancouver on the west coast of Canada. The first 16 photos show you some of the two week period I just told about. The remainder are of our usual occasional snowy winter days.

Places of Worship - Greater Vancouver Area

While this may not look like an interesting category, I have discovered that by making a project of a certain subject there is a lot I can learn about photography. Places of worship have interesting architecture. I enjoy the drama of the tall steeples, and the skewed edges of the buildings created when attempting to capture the entire building in a single photo. Some are difficult to capture in only one view.
Some photos in this album are simply record shots, but I will return during different weather and sunlight to get a better shot. Note: All photographs are copyrighted.

Houses on STILTS in Finn Slough, Richmond BC

Many times artists can be seen with their easels, painting this picturesque area on the marshy banks of the Fraser River. It is located at the south end of Number 4 Road in Richmond. Take your camera, park on the side of the road, explore both banks of the housed area by crossing over the wooden foot bridge, but please respect their privacy. This area is not publicized for that very reason. The amount of water in the slough will vary with the tides so it may be that the slough is dry when you arrive.

Wikipedia states this fishing village was founded by Finnish settlers in 1880 and most of the buildings were constructed between that time and the 1950s. There are approximately 30 residents. For more info about this area and the Finn Slough Heritage & Wetland Society on the south arm of the Fraser River go to http://www.finnslough.com/ and to http://www.angelfire.com/bc/finnslough/ Note: All photographs are copyrighted.

BUILDINGS of Greater Vancouver

Old or new, our buildings are grand. Many are built with glass to reflect their surroundings, including the sky and the sunsets. Many heritage buildings in the downtown area have been refurbished to become apartments. Note: All photos are copyrighted.
