Commercial Alley Murals



Running between Yates Street and Bastion Square the city has commissioned a series of art pieces which, in my opinion are fabulous. Titled Coastal Reports by Daniel Ellingsen they are worth seeing. There is more information here.

A Firm Grip on Reality

Here's another shot from the archives - one of those photos that just happens when you're out and about with a camera in hand. This little guy and his dad were in Chinatown to see the Chinese New Year celebration in February 2010. I didn't get a very good view of the actual celebration but this photo more than made up for that.

February Flashback

I find as I age I am turning into a fair weather photographer. For me, photography requires a bit of a meditative state and when it's cold I no longer have the patience to stand around and get it right. So, until it warms up a bit more we'll have a look at some photos from the past. The dramatic shot above is from February 2009. It's already starting to have some historical significance - in the center of the photo you can see a blue Telus phone booth. There used to be a couple of these on the Causeway but once everyone started to have mobiles they were removed.
