Shown below is one of the best photographs I ever took. I snapped it in Vancouver four years ago while hiking the edge of Stanley Park. I love a city with a park, beach and mountains. Vancouver is truly beautiful.
I was there to attend a blogger-meetup my BFF Suzanne organized. I'd met Suzanne once before when she visited NYC and leapt at the chance to go to Canada to meet several other bloggers I follow, like fashion-maven Sheila and endurance-athlete Jodi. It was a fun trip.
I haven't been to the west coast often (only once before this trip) so I was surprised to learn that Vancouver has more Asians (50%) than European-Canadians (48%). (The other 2% are original Canadian natives.) A large part of the city is devoted to Asian culture, food and shops. I hadn't anticipated that. On the east coast, Asians are a much smaller minority.
Anyway, back to the picture. The light, reflected off the Pacific Ocean, sparkles just right as an attractive woman'e silhouette is emphasized by backlight. I'm proud how well this image came out. Have you ever been to Vancouver?
