Vancouver photo essay.

Orange sun seeping over the mountains and edging through cracks in the wall of skyscrapers ringing my hotel says “time to get up and explore Vancouver in the morning.” My wanderings are recorded in a photo essay about life in Vancouver through the eyes of a prairie boy.


My first subjects included a multi species cleanup crew at work removing detritus and cleaning up the city.

A series of stacked stones just off the sea wall caught my eye. I imagined groups of people or a single committed individual having a great time balancing all these rocks.

Granville Island is meant for people, pigeons and gulls. Putting my camera at ground level provided an alternative view of the bustling area.

A few more shots rounded out my day of wandering Vancouver.

    I really enjoyed this series. I hope to be back there next spring when the roads clear. Maybe I’ll see you wandering with your camera.

    Trent, you have given me a whole new dimension of Vancouver!
    I loved your walk around Granville Island…and the various species of “clean up” crews.
    Wonderful shots, thank you! xoxo Sally
