weekend


we went to the IDS west this weekend (which was nice, alot of familiar faces and work there) and of course this was one of the two photos i took, at the entrance of the convention centre. (which is amazing BTW)

however i also took these photos on our walk back to the car, of the art deco marine building.

(click on the images if you want to see them in more detail)

it was finished in 1930 and used to have uniformed doorman standing at the entrance.


i used to work a couple of buildings over, and after passing the marine building each day i guess i just kind of got used to it, took it's beauty for granted. well on sunday it was like i was seeing for the first time. it is so beautiful!



i love the canada geese and the ship detail.

How was the show, kate? Great pics of the Marine Building...one of the few oldies still standing in Vancouver.

I love this building, the Landscape Institute lives here! It is a shame it feels so hidden away opposite a multi-storey car park!

great photos! such a beautiful building - i haven't been by there in ages. i used to work in the guinness tower + bring documents to clients in the marine building - always a perk to my days in the law offices!
