Vancouver - Thinks it's better than me...

...and it probably is.

Just some random shots of Vancouver's urban fabric. Downtown and East Vancouver, mainly. The architecture is mostly plain and the street life is placid at best, but it still manages to be one of the most beautiful, pleasant, and impressive metropolises I've ever visited and easily one of my favourite cities. A marvel of good planning, good services, and good fortune!

I am constantly longing to be in Vancouver... nice photos!

There are a few shots in and around English Bay.... I stayed once at the Sylvia Hotel there. It was my home away from home. Good memories!

Other than those bleak concrete slabs in the West End, Vancouver is looking real nice. What a setting for a city. It almost looks tropical. When I was there in 2004 I was surprised to see palm trees. Canada has palm trees? Who would have thought?
It is nice to see that the urban planning mistakes of the 60's and 70's are either being concealed or corrected.
