In 1998… I spent a week in Vancouver at the Lord Stanley Hotel by the the water and a couple of days in Whistler.  So beautiful.  Ryan Emond spent some time documenting the city.  I love his perspectives and his work is incredible.  I was a fan of his from when he did the one for Toronto on Vimeo.

How can you not fall in love with this city.  I miss Stanley Park.  I wish I could spend 3 weeks traveling all around the coastline much farther north and into the interior.
