This one’s pretty well content-free, just some Vancouver pix, and yes, one of ’em definitely has a flavor of “put it on a postcard to attract the tourists.” That’s OK, we get tons every year (a million just to do the cruise-ship thing) and generally like our visitors.

This would be the downtown core of Vancouver, looking North; check out the fresh snow on the mountains behind town, the skiers quiver when they see that. Thanks to Robin Copas, this was shot from his studio; you might want to give it a click and see it full-size.

Downtown Vancouver from the South

Now imagine that you cross the big bridge in the picture above and keep going North till you cross downtown; you’d be at the harborfront and you could take a SeaBus across to the other side, which I did this morning to enjoy an hour’s extreme pain at the hands of the dental hygienist. This shot is looking back South across the harbour, once again at downtown, the black-and-white dot in the water on the right side is the incoming SeaBus; Our office is two blocks from the SeaBus terminal.

Looking south across Vancouver Harbor from Lonsdale Quay

The picture is taken from a place called Lonsdale Quay; if you stand there and face straight West, the view includes our handsome “Lion’s Gate” bridge, with some apparatus between here and there to remind us that this is a working harbor, not just a tourist attraction.
