From the Miss604 Flickr Pool: Beach City

January 10th, 2012 @ 2:47pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

Once again, National Geographic has named Vancouver one of the Top Beach Cities in the World. Actually, I’m unsure if this is a new ranking since Vancouver still sits at #10 on the list (as it did in 2010) and the same beach image is being used. Regardless, our waterfronts are popular attractions for local […]

From the Miss604 Flickr Pool: Rain

January 4th, 2012 @ 2:40pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s rather fitting that the first collection of images From the Miss604 Flickr Pool for 2012 have a “rain” theme. Make jokes about living on the “Wet” Coast and complain about umbrella etiquette all you want. The fact is that all of this lovely precipitation, that allows us to splash around in our wellies, ensures […]

Top Dining Experiences of 2011

December 28th, 2011 @ 11:18am by Rebecca Bollwitt

As 2011 winds down, I have decided to do my annual “year in review” posts. While it’s tough to select the best moments (that I have blogged) over the last year, this week I’ll profile the following categories: Travel, Food, Music, and Entertainment. I think the story of the year was the explosion of street […]

Vancouver Christmas Market Photowalk

December 22nd, 2011 @ 10:00am by Rebecca Bollwitt

I ventured out to the Vancouver Christmas Market for the first time this season with Ariane Colenbrander. She and I both have Nikon 1 review cameras at the moment (mine is hot pink) so we got together at the market to try them out and take some photos. I think they really improved the layout […]

December 14th, 2011 @ 5:12pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

I thought that things would wind down around this time of year but the advent calendar windows just keep flying open. We’re already half-way through December and 2011 is slipping into the rear-view mirror. This is the very last “From the Miss604 Flickr Pool” roundup that I will compile this year, ahead of any year-end […]

Archives Photos of the Day: Telephones

December 12th, 2011 @ 1:10pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

It was on this day, December 12, 1883, that the first local phone call was made — it was between Port Moody and New Westminster [source]. In honor of this, my theme for today’s archive photo collection is telephones with images from the Vancouver Archives and the old BC Telephone company. 1895 – Operators and […]

From the Miss604 Flickr Pool

November 28th, 2011 @ 11:25am by Rebecca Bollwitt

The leaves have left their branches and it’s most definitely becoming toque weather. November has come and gone as quickly as the powerful gusts of wind it brought in from our shores. We had frost, snow, power outages, a civic election, a Grey Cup win, and the start of many festive markets and fairs. The […]
