Congrats again to Rob and Shannondell and, thanks to the Province for featuring their happy day in their new ‘I Do’ section. Page B8 in your Sunday Province and an expanded, online gallery at theprovince.com.
Fanta Orange on Flickr.
Lisa was pretty stoked when I came back with two of her favourite soda’s at the schwarma place. Fanta Orange hasn’t been generally available in Canada since we were kids and Lisa had rekindled her love affair with it in Europe a couple years ago.
The schwarma place (Babylon on Robson Street, one of the best) gets it from somewhere in the middle east, making it even more exotic.
Trajan was unphased, not yet being a fan of soda. The boy certainly loves his schwarma though!
Oliver on Flickr.
Trajan’s mate Oliver, rather happy as he comes off the slide. (thought I’d mix it up a bit by posting a picture or two of other people’s kids)
Tulips on Flickr.
So much nicer without all those gaudy colours!
More Swinging on Flickr.
Expect to see lots of these moving forward. The boy does love his swings and Dad’s gotta point his camera at something.
Because the one thing Vancouver really lacks on Flickr.
Is over-priced burger joints with an elevated sense of their place in the food chain. Thankfully, the Cactus Club is there and, increasingly everywhere, to remedy this problem. Ugh.
Zuiko 85mm f/2, Olympus OM-4. Just loving the metering on the OM-4, everything lands right where I want it using their wonderful spot meter. In this case, a shadow reading off of the black cladding retains full detail.
Vancouver’s Famous Sea Wall on Flickr.
People come to Vancouver from all around the world to walk the Seawall and see the stunning views of the North Shore, English Bay, False Creek etc. We’re spoiled, I’ve lived within a couple blocks of it for most of the last 25 years and, while I’m out on the seawall frequently, I don’t really think too much of the views most of the time.
Lately, however, I’ve started noticing some pretty cool stuff happening around knee level on the sea wall.
