Dubbed as the "City of Glass", Vancouver is a city with very modern architecture on very picturesque landscape. Not visible in the first photo (behind the clouds) are the mountains where most of the Olympic events are being held – just behind downtown.
I was in Vancouver in August of 2008 for a friend's wedding and wanted to share my own images of Vancouver with you. I wish I had taken more photos.
A partial view of downtown Vancouver and Granville Street Bridge from Granville Island and Burrard Inlet.
This is English Bay, the west side neighbourhood of downtown Vancouver (city beaches are nice!)
Stone art from the (12 mile) seawall walk around Stanley Park (located near downtown Vancouver)
More of English Bay
The Aqua Bus takes you from downtown Vancouver across the inlet to Granville Island.
design building – where I spent my college days
A view of the adorable house boats that line Granville Island
Interior of the ECUAD design building. That's me with my friend Kevin who I graduated with. He has lived in London for more than 12 years and we met on Granville Island one day to reminisce about our college days. I hadn't been in the building since I graduated!
A view of downtown buildings from a rooftop garden of The Fairmont Hotel.
The Olympic Pavilion (still under construction in 2008 when I took this photo)
Stanley Park cedar trees... so beautiful.
This driftwood looked like a fish to me (taken along the Stanley Park seawall walk)
