My 10 Favourite Street Art Shots

I love street art and thought I would share a few of my favourite pieces discovered at home and in my travels.  In no particular order, here they are! Enjoy!

Vancouver Through the Eyes of a Tourist & Why You Wish You Lived Here (in pictures)

It’s sometimes hard to see the forest for the trees.  In other words, it’s often hard to appreciate your own city when you’ve lived there too long to see it exactly as newcomers and tourists do.  Vancouver is exceptionally beautiful, especially when the sun shines, so in an effort to see my city through the eyes of a visitor, and to enjoy the last few days before the rain sets in, I ventured out to rediscover some of the reasons why I moved here more than 4 years ago.

This Is East Van

I was so happy to be included in the inaugural This Is East Van community photography project and was even happier to learn that there will be a second edition coming again soon.  This project graphically showcases a blemished but beautiful community comprised of people from all walks of life.

With the deadline for submissions looming, I figured I best get my 5 images in before heading off to Europe tomorrow.  While devoid of people, like many of my photographs, here are my submissions for this year’s project.

Capilano: the west coast rainforest in my backyard!

Following the Travel Blog Exchange in June, I made use of my generous media pass, courtesy of Tourism Vancouver, to be a sight-seer in my own city and check out some of the best that Metro Vancouver has to offer.  Capilano Suspension Bridge, dangling 70 metres above Capilano River, is always impressive, lush and majestic so I was very happy to have another wander around this beautiful, rain-forested park.  In addition to the amazing suspension bridge, Capilano park boasts the not-for-the-faint-of-heart Cliffwalk as well as the much-loved Treetops Adventure!

Unbeknownst to me, BC residents can enjoy unlimited admission to Capilano Suspension Bridge for one full year for the same price as a one day admission!  Yearly membership costs only $32.95 plus HST.  BC resident membership includes:

    * Unlimited admission to Capilano Suspension Bridge for one full year
    * 10% off at the attraction’s Trading Post Gift Shop
    * 10% off food and beverage at Canyon Cafe, Loggers’ Grill and Bridge House Restaurant
    * 15% off admission for all accompanying guests when you return for your second visit
    * Access to special attraction events throughout the year, including Harvest Festival, Canyon Lights and Canada Day.

Belated but Blogged: Canada Day in Steveston

Ok it really is July 11th and I’m only blogging about Canada Day just now.  Oops… but it was such a great day that I can’t let it go unblogged about!  My brother and I decide to take our visiting parents to the annual Steveston Salmon Festival on Canada Day.  It was a beautiful day starting with a tour of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, followed by sunshine, endless crowds of happy Canadians, cupcakes and finally fresh-barbequed salmon!

Vancouver: Cool Conference City

The last 6 weeks saw me taking in conference after conference after conference here in the beautiful city of Vancouver. Needless to say I met a lot of people and learned a few things along the way.

Northern Voice (#nv11) kicked off my conference tour in the lovely, light and linear Life Sciences Centre at the University of British Columbia. This is where the local blogging scene comes together each spring to share, teach and discuss all the elements of personal blogging and social media. My very good friend, Alison Wonderland, made the trip from Medicine Hat and summed up her conference experience here.

A couple weeks later I found myself attending the NAFSA 2011 (#nafsa11) conference at the state-of-the-art, super-green and very pleasant Vancouver Convention Centre. The annual NAFSA conference is a gathering of nearly 9,000 international education professionals from all over the world. An international exhibition accompanied by seminars, workshops and countless receptions (and a few hockey games!), NAFSA aims to help schools and agents form partnerships and share ideas on the future of the industry, professional development, international student recruitment and services, visa issues and all things education related.

Finally I wrapped up my conferencing, again at the Vancouver Convention Centre, this time with the international Travel Blog Exchange (#tbex). This rounded out my conference education and networking nicely especially as I consider myself a travel photoblogger. TBEX was a wonderful meeting of like-minded people, sharing the love of travel, writing and photography (and a again a few more hockey games). The absolute highlight for me was hearing the sage Journeywoman, Evelyn Hannon, speak. She reminded all of us to stay true to ourselves and that traveling can be a wonderful healer of heartache and a catalyst for a brilliant, adventurous future.

Good morning, Gastown

good morning, gastown
Often on the way to work I see the beautiful light in Gastown and think I should, some weekend, get up early enough to snap a few shots. I took advantage of my current jetlag this morning and headed downtown just before the 7 o’clock sunrise. Even though the morning sky was a beautiful blue, this picture just felt better in black & white. Enjoy.

Photography Round-up

I promised my longtime friend, Alison Wonderland, that I would finally post about a few photography achievements. While I like to share my images with my readers, I am loathe to brag but Alison kindly reminded me that my blog is for exactly whatever I want it to be and I should most certainly share some of the cool photography happenings.

So without further ado …

This photo was chosen yesterday by Ubuntu to be included as wallpaper in their new Linux operating system release, Natty Narwahl.

You can see the other selected wallpapers on the Web Upd8 blog here or on My Technology Guide here.

This is East Van is a community photography project that has compiled images of our beloved East Vancouver to publish in a book. With approximately 1500 submissions and only 100-some images chosen, I am so pleased to be included in this project.

The Del Mar Hotel

Expect the This is East Van book to be for sale in April at
Make It Vancouver. Book launch party at the Waldorf on May 5th!

The Vancouver Darkroom Co-op recently held a small exhibition with the theme Dream Logic. My very first photos printed and hung in this gallery exhibition in February were:

Finally, in the works is a cover shot for the new Azedume publication, a Brazilian arts & entertainment magazine. The exact image hasn’t been decided just yet but may well be this one taken in a Sao Paulo street.

Is it me or is it just spring?

The groundhog said just 2 weeks ago that we could expect an early spring. While there is snow in the air and doubt in my mind, I refreshed my apartment with some cheery blossoms. Here’s hoping the groundhog was right!
