Vancouver is lacking in the ‘nice architecture’ department so when someone puts in a little effort it really stands out.

This photo was taken outside a tent city that was protesting against the Olympics in Vancouver. I guess not everyone loves the freestyle moguls as much as I do.

Spring

The fact that this Winter has been the warmest in over 100 years coupled with the 5 days of straight sunshine has confused the plants in Vancouver and they have already started to flower.

Canada vs USA

One of the perks of working at the Vancouver Winter Olympics is that you might get to catch some events. I poked my head in at the highly anticipated Canada vs USA hockey match. I was expecting the crowd to be a bit more crazy but I guess there is nothing to cheer about when your team is losing. The teams meet up again in the gold medal game so let’s hope the result is better next time around!

Smoke ’em if you got ’em

I went and visited the Olympic cauldron the other day. It really does look like 4 joints leaning against each other which doesn’t surprise me when it’s not uncommon to walk through clouds of pot smoke in this city. The wise move of getting there at 8am paid off as there were hardly any people there and you could get a clear shot of the flame. By clear I mean no people. You still have to deal with the cyclone fencing that keeps you 20 meters back and protects the flame from anyone who might want to damage it. It was raining on the day I went (surprise surprise) which gives the flames a nice dark background to bounce off. Plus I got creative with some rain drops.

Say what?!

When there is a hockey game on all fashion rules get thrown out of the window. I love it.

Here are a few shots I’ve taken while at my glamorous, well paying job at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
