Architectural Nighttime Shots

There is a new condo building in downtown Vancouver shaped a bit like l’arche de la Défense in Paris.  There are eight concrete columns supporting the arch, with a ninth column made to look like tree bark and inserted as part of the public art required for the project.  It think it is interesting at night.

Chinatown Umbrellas – Photohaus Exhibition 2014

This is the second image chosen by Photohaus for exhibition in June 2014.  I shot this on 13-Feb-2010 which was both Chinese New Year and also the opening day of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.  It was a glorious day in Vancouver – not something we can count on at that time of year – and the whole city was abuzz with excitement.  We went into town on the Skytrain and wandered around the Olympic venues and down into China Town.

These umbrellas – part of some decor for a private party – caught my eye.  It is a happy image for me.
