    You might try Granville Island (at the foot of the Granville St bridge across from downtown).

    Here's a 5 year old version of part of that view, taken from the sea bus. It can look quite a lot nicer than what I've captured.

    Gastown is very close to my hotel, so I'll try some shots in the evening (maybe on the first night when I'm not so worn down from work).

    The big clock in Gastown should be a very cool subject in low light. As I recall, it should be somewhat shrouded in steam. (or is that some other place I'm thinking of? Getting old... they say the memory is the second thing to go... :rolleyes: )

    Cheers,
    Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    It is a steam driven clock and could be cool at night. For entertainment district shots at night Gas town is good, granville by Smithe (or is it smythe?) would probably be better and English bay may work as well. There are a lot of street side grocer's that stay open into the dark hours, all of the hotels and many of the offices are lite at night (at least at street level). I've fallen in love with the older apartment buildings. One thing missing in Vancouver are the neon signs that made many of Fred Herzog's images of Vancouver sing.

    Sorry Toffle I didn't mean to steal your words it was suppose to show up as a quote from you when you were writing about the homeless people going all out doing a recycling program. Thats one of the things that some of my relatives said to me too when they were out here last summer. And yes it is spelled Smythe. You can see how Vancouver is really trying to go green by slicing down all the trees on Granville. The skytain stations on the new line are not finished yet so that might do for some rough shots. Go down to Yale town and False Creek that is all nicely fixed up. That should be good for a few shots. And the weather is going to be cold so nice clear contrasty shots. (contrasy should be a word or is it ?)

    If you're staying near Gastown then you have lots of opportunities nearby. North Shore/Seabus, Yaletown, and Granville Street/Island are all easily accessable. There's also Robson Street(street/fashion) and Stanley Park(urban nature), and as long as you don't drift too far up East Hastings-south of Terminal Station, around BC Place, has some really great industrial scenery.

    I managed to shoot that clock in gastown last night. I'm going to one of the local film labs here (if I get time) so I'll post the results in my gallery.

    I've posted three shots in my gallery which I think are decent. I'm disappointed about the overexposure, but I guess it isn't bad considering that it was the first time I used tungsten film.
