Vancouver Objects

Vancouver wasn”t all about food. Other interesting things, unique to that city presented themselves.

The walking man is ubiquitous; we don”t even notice him. But in Vancouver, the walking man took new forms.

STOP! walkin’ man


This dude is goin’ against the crowd.


And this chap has picked up a companion.


Though it didn”t rain while we were there, Vancouver gets lots of rain at other times. Most buildings, especially new buildings, have erected glass awnings, rather than the traditional canvas awnings, to allow precious light to penetrate to the street. I didn”t see any canvas awnings in Vancouver, while in Victoria those are the only kind I saw.
