Current view...

...from the 15th floor lunch room in my building.

Unfortunately I did not learn my lesson from Monday, and once again had to resort to using my camera phone. And I couldn't get outside - the door to the "top deck" is locked for the winter.

But still, eh? Not bad...

Looking North-West

  2. Totally. I also want everyone to move here (or at least visit) so I can take them for a beer.

    I was lucky to catch the light at the best time. I sit with my back to the window (4th floor, North facing) and just happened to turn around and catch a glimpse of the setting sun hitting the downtown buildings. So I grabbed my phone and bolted for the elevators...

  6. Those are nice for phone pics, better than most of the ones I've tried! A *very* nice view. When should we all move up? ;)

  7. Gorgeous, Cath.

    And I'm warning you now... I *will* be coming to Vancouver one day. My husband visited the city years ago and raves about it. We always talk about visiting it together one day...

  11. View from my office is not as nice... dined at a place called Nam last night -- nice.

  12. SF, what can I say, the iPhone rocks! If you want to move up you might want to wait for the property market to sink a little lower...

    BM, just let me know when you're coming!

    Lisbeth, Nina and HG - sorry...

    Okham, are you staying downtown? I haven't been to Nam, but I used to live in that neighbourhood. Mmmmm, Kits, I do miss it sometimes. We were at another vegetarian place last week called the Foundation, on Main and 6th. I've been a few times now and it's great - my veggie friends say they like it better than the Nam. Even the avowed carnivores out for our veggie friend's birthday were raving about the food!

  15. Beautiful. What time did you take the picture? It must get dark there pretty early now.

  16. About 4pm. Counting down the days until it starts getting lighter again!

  17. aww.....

    that made my day yesterday. Lovely!

    goog luck with the skiing. Soon I tell you, soon I will see snow (I'm keeping my fingers crossed at least.)

  18. I've got my fingers crossed for you too!

  19. It's pics like this that really make me miss the NorthWest (even though I haven't been North of Seattle), minus the rain or winter darkness. Sign me up for a summer visit?

  20. Alas, it is currently rather unbeautifully rainy... I think there might be mountains behind all that cloud, but I really can't say for sure.

  21. I only sort of ski (have only tried on a real mountain twice), but I definitely love snow. And every time you post pictures, Vancouver gets bumped up on my list of places to go. Some day I will make it, just hope you still live there!

  22. I'm not planning to move any time soon!
