Last month I traveled to Vancouver BC and spent about 3.5 days wandering around. I took about 400 photos give or take and had the greatest time. There is so much to do there and I was exceedingly lucky to get there after some of smoky and hazy conditions of the weeks before because of the wild fires there. I miss the place!
A good thing about taking photographs is the vicarious reliving of the experience whenever I want. Here’s a few of my favorite photographs taken with my Fuji X series. See if you would like to visit some time.
Some of the things I truly enjoyed there were the people, food, beer, and I think its one of the best cities if you happen to like walking to see a place. They have these wonderful and cheap aquataxi’s to take you here and there. But look at those skies! The beautiful blue and puffy white clouds of each day made my travels so memorable. The city scapes were wondrous and each day I was stunned with the variety of the place. Skyscrapers combined with sleepy neighborhoods and Gastown. All vying for my attention.
I don’t think that 4 days was long enough to see the variety of life and experience the different neighborhoods, parks, and walkways. Too much to see but its always been that way wherever I went and probably will go.
I have cities lining up for next year when I get away. I want to shoot street photography in Chicago a lot. I think late spring next year will be beautiful there. Then it will be on to Boston and New York on the train.
But now its memories of the trips I’ve done and especially the latest one. Vancouver was truly beautiful and a unique place with all of things to see. If you are hunting for a place and want to have your days filled with culture, food, beer, and a great feeling of being; I recommend Vancouver.
