Mostly green here. Some isolated patches of fall color starting to show up out of town:









Spoiler





Confluence





Chestnut trees





Graffiti





Someone likes beer







Wow the situation is bad on this street.





Pretty nice, lively 'hood





Playing pétanque





Another panorama. Further out so less concrete.





Hate it when they cut trees like this:





Strange mish mash





Another banana tree





A big, brand new roundabout.





Nice cycle path, for once!





Finally, a métro stop. Though no art nouveau entrance there.







Wish my former line had such bus lanes





Big commieblocks at dusk








Considering the hilly terrain, that's a lot (at least to me ). The area looks fun to explore.
Hail is common in winter.

We've been having some foggy weather in Vancouver the last few days, but no rain. If this keeps up October will probably end up being drier than September, which is quite unusual out here. Fall colors are starting to come in very nicely now, here are a few shots I took...

Well, Vancouver is over 50% Asian now and only 45% white.

Leafs in Vancouver look good.

Only in places relatively close to a large body of water. Otherwise, the atmosphere is too stable, so in more inland places, it's a spring/summer thing.

It just has a lot of new high rises by downtown. Its architecture looked north American to me, with some commonalities with the Pacific Northwest and others with the rest of Canada.

Not the houses in the top picture. It looks very different to Winnipeg.
