Very interesting pictures, I enjoyed this picture set far more than the clichéd images of Vancouver that we've come to expect on this site.

Excellent work and thank you for sharing!

Finally somebody took some real photos of Vancouver. So great to see the gritty seaside soul of a city in a major transition. I hate when people say Vancouver is the most beautiful city in the world. That notion made me disappointed when I visited. I expected a perfectly clean upscale city with white capped mountains. Cities have their underbellies like houses have their sewage systems. Actually this is more beautiful because it is reality. Vancouver is edgy and I really like that. The Downtown Eastside is like Midtown Manhattan in the 1970s how cool is that. No wonder why Hollywood loves Vancouver...city of syringes.

Vancouver is looking better than ever! The first shot is magical.

So basically what you're saying is that when you visited Vancouver, you were expecting the most beautiful city in the world, and you were disappointed because it was more beautiful than you expected? And you're annoyed that people say it's the most beautiful city in the world since it gives the impression that it's less beautiful than it really is?

Hmm, I guess you'd prefer people say it's the most beautiful city in the galaxy then.

I got a very sugar coated impression of what Vancouver would be like prior to my visit. Instead I walked right into Pigeon Park as soon as I got there. If someone said Vancouver is a city with its highs and lows I would have been happy with that. The brochures make the city look like Eden. I was in shock but when the shock wore off the city seemed more appealing for being interesting and not a mythical beauty queen. There is no most beautiful city in the world as far as I'm concerned. The setting and landscape are indeed gorgeous.

Haha, yeah, I knew what you meant, and I have to say that for the most part I agree. I just thought I'd have a little fun with your wording.
