I love architecture. I also love old things. I guess that’s why I love old buildings and bridges. Pretty simple I guess. I used to think that Vancouver’s history wasn’t too old until I found that we now know that aboriginals have been in North America for at least 15,000 years. Its hard to remember that when the oldest building in Vancouver was built in the mid 1800’s. For us that is very old. The Lions Gate Bridge was built in the late 1930’s. It was built by the Guiness family of Dublin Ireland. Yes, the beer family. Not sure if that is the reason for it being green but I’d like to think so. I have taken many photographs of this bridge in the last 5 years. Here are some of my favorites.

I love Vancouver.  Everything about it.  We are consistently named one of the nicest, most livable cities to live in on the planet.  Stanley Park was named the nicest park in the world by a survey taken by millions.  A 24 km pedestrian sea wall surrounds all of downtown where orcas, humpbacks and grey whales can be seen in our harbours.  And from the top of a building just south of downtown the views are amazing!
