Views of Vancouver


As wander around Vancouver, every so often a photo opportunity presents itself for no other reason that the resulting image simply looks good. I've posted a few of these moments here.


Above is the popular Japadog hot-dog stand on Burrand Street. It sells Japanese influenced hot-dogs - think seaweed flakes, wasabi mayo and teriyaki sauce and you have the essence of this delicious local institution. On our first day in town people were patiently queuing for half a block to sample its wares.


Above is the original Olympic flame cauldron from this year's Winter Olympics. When the games ended, the cauldron was relocated to this harbour-front location. When we came across it, the afternoon sun was low in the sky, giving its glass surface a glowing, iridescent sheen.
