We’ve had brutal fall weather, repeated heavy rain & wind warnings, have had to shovel rather than rake the fallen leaves. But today that slanting winter sun came out and tempted the photographer’s eye. Very Vancouver. [Update: the next morning, it’s pouring and grey. So if I snarl at you in an email or over the phone or whatever, it’s early-onset Seasonal Affective Disorder at work.]

When the rain clears, the skiers look at the mountains, and when they see this they smile. That’s called Grouse Mountain and you can even see the ski run. Main & 21st, looking north.

Most of the trees have lost most of their leaves, but this one, at Ontario and 19th, is hanging on.

The sky wasn’t all blue, and some of the clouds courteously lined up behind this white shadowpainted wall just as I was walking by. This is the Continental Sausage factory at Main & 20th.
