All eyes were on Mexico’s fireworks team last night at English Bay
One last fireworks evening remains this coming Saturday night. This time it will be a “tribute” to China (does this mean it will not be China itself?)
I’ve spent my share of time in those Downtown Olympics crowds and like the quietness and randomness surrounding the nightly vectorial elevation light show.
20 second exposure catching different light movements
Playing around with my new macro lense
I like these lights so much that I went back for the second night in a row.
The vectorial elevation display, as seen from Beach Av., close to the aquatic center
A live model at Robson’s Guess store
Watching the USA-Canada hockey game at the CTV booth on Robson. Canada just scored to make it 1-1.
Watching the searchlights from Burrard Bridge
It’s free to admire the Kruzenshtern (a Russian tall ship), but not free to go sailing on it.
The nightly vectorial elevation light show, as seen from North Vancouver.
The Olympic Cauldron, as seen through the now infamous fence.
Sometimes I have photos that I don’t know what to do with them (as far as this blog is concerned), so these will fit in the “random photos” category. Here are the first five:
Arguably the most recognizable car in Vancouver
A cool cartoon painted on a vintage car
From my last visit back home in Montreal, in 2008
Vancouver’s Lions’ Gate bridge at night, as seen from Stanley Park’s Seawall
A mouth-watering dessert at “Seasons in the Park”, in Queen Elizabeth Park
Saturday, August 1st was China’s turn to wow the crowd at the HSBC Celebration of Light. Here is a short photographic summary of the evening…
It’s 8:15pm and a sea of people has already formed along the shores of First Beach at English Bay
Just before showtime, at 10pm
Let the fireworks begin!
Multiply the Critical Mass bike ride “population” by 100 and you get the pedestrian version,
