Vancouver Photos of the Week: SeaBus

March 13th, 2013 @ 11:34am by Rebecca Bollwitt

There is another theme to this week’s roundup of photos from the Miss604 Flickr Pool as I’m still down in Austin for South by Southwest: The SeaBus – faithfully transporting commuters to and from the North Shore across Burrard Inlet. I’ll return to the regular photo collection once we get back above the 49th parallel […]

Vancouver Icons: Point Atkinson Lighthouse

March 8th, 2013 @ 11:19am by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Point Atkinson Lighthouse and Lighthouse Park are located in West Vancouver however they’re so frequently photographed, from above, below, the rocks, and the water, that they’re the perfect fit for the Vancouver Icon photo feature series: Charted and named by Captain George Vancouver in 1792, Point Atkinson was an ideal geographic aid to shipping […]

Vancouver History: Photographer Daniel O’Neill

March 5th, 2013 @ 9:33am by Rebecca Bollwitt

The weekly collections of archive photography that I usually assemble date back a century if not more. We have early Vancouver (even before it was called Vancouver), its formative years with the original Hotel Vancouver, the race to continually have the “tallest building in the British Empire” over and over again, and the post-war era. […]

Vancouver Icons: English Bay Inukshuk

March 2nd, 2013 @ 10:04am by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Inukshuk at English Bay is the focus of many photographs taken by locals and tourists alike. It stars with sunset views, sweeping inlet panoramas, and sparkling fireworks displays. It was the inspiration for the winning logo design for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics (which wrapped up 3 years ago this week). For this reason […]

Vancouver Aerial Photos Then and Now

February 26th, 2013 @ 10:25am by Rebecca Bollwitt

In a city where the skyline changes annually, it’s always fascinating to look back ten to one hundred years to see how it has evolved. Last week I had the opportunity to fly around the region with News1130’s Kim Seale and I had my cameras firing every few seconds as I tried to capture the […]

Aerial Photos of Vancouver From My News1130 Air Patrol Ride Along With Kim Seale

February 25th, 2013 @ 11:42am by Rebecca Bollwitt

On Thursday afternoon I was flying between 1,000 and 1,300 feet above the Lower Mainland with News1130 Radio‘s Kim Seale as she put in her afternoon shift from her “office in the sky”. Kim takes off twice a day, for about three hours each time, during the morning and afternoon rush hours. She spots stalls, […]

From the Miss604 Flickr Pool

February 19th, 2013 @ 5:00pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Miss604 Flickr Group is over 615 members strong and thanks to those members, 27,199 photos have been shared and admired. Even though Vancouver seems to have more grey and rainy days than anything else, there’s still so much beauty and diversity to be found and captured through a lens. When you’ve finished basking in […]
