Wandering Vancouver in Autumn

Posted on 3rd October 2015 in architecture, explored, wandering

Lately I’ve been taking to the streets of Vancouver with my camera to photograph anything that I see. This is part my effort to begin studying what it means to be a documenter, and part my effort to learn the new camera I am using, the Sony Alpha7. It’s truly a remarkable camera and I have plans to do a full review of the camera shortly.

Vancouver is a city that I find incredibly beautiful, depending on the day. Some days, golden light shines through semi-tall buildings filled with multi-cultural citizens who spill out into the streets to enjoy the green city, some of them walking or cycling about their business.

Today was one of those days where the city is simply golden.

My path? I walked from Chinatown, to Gastown, to Granville St and Robson Street, back East through Yaletown, across the viaduct between Rogers Arena and BC Place Stadium, and back through Chinatown.

This is the architecture, graffiti and other nonsense I found along the way. Street Photography post can be found here.

Architecture of San Francisco, California

Posted on 24th July 2013 in architecture

It was over a year ago now that I made my trip down to San Francisco. I took the most western route possible the whole way down, stopping at every spot I could along the coast. I have also already shown the images of the people, the street photography I did while down there (part 1, part 2). Now, I want to show you the architecture I photographed down there.

I was staying in Lower Knob Hill, and spent a lot of time around that area, wandering to the business district, china town, all along the piers, Market, Little Saigon, and Fillmore district. I walked a lot, and took a lot of photos! Met some very cool people too, as usual.
