Vancouver Icons: Vancouver Public Library Central Branch

May 12th, 2012 @ 9:34am by Rebecca Bollwitt

I began the Vancouver Icons series over a year ago to occasionally showcase photos of statues, buildings, and landmarks that we see everyday. They’re spotted in locally-filmed television shows and movies, and there are countless photos shared online.

As promised, April showers have brought May flowers along with a bright and sunny forecast. It’s been rather windy over the last few days but my favourite thing about the cool breeze is that is sweeps over the inlet revealing a crystal clear view of the North Shore. I can look out from downtown Vancouver […]

From the Miss604 Flickr Pool

It’s been a gloriously sunny weekend in Vancouver with a parade, patio dining, and the Sun Run this morning. I have neglected to the Miss604 Flickr Pool for well over a week so it was quite the task to piece through all of the amazing spring images that have been submitted. I can’t feature them […]
