Great shots and i can see a lot of unusual views of Vancouver.

This place looks charming and a cool place to chill and especially natural setting of this city is just awesome.

Amazng! The scenery around Vancouver literally looks identical to Norway! :O You can see the similarities by choosing a random coastside location in Norway on Street View: http://maps.google.no/

Nice shots overall of Vancouver. I really should upload the photos I have of the city too, but I'm lazy.

One thing I do dislike about the city though is this:

Quote:

Why are the power lines so intrusive and antiquated? They really do detract from the overall clean look of the city.

The amount of times I see those photographed, you'd think they were a tourist attraction. Not a big fan of them myself.
