Vancouver in Winter 2014


English Bay Vancouver BC 2014

Winter in Vancouver, BC is rainy… it is always…
It is very hard to see sun during this season.

This is a panorama of English bay. It was not quite rainy… but it was cloudy all day.

Old days, this kind of weather was not good for photography, but not anymore. There are so many things we can change by Adobe Photoshop and cloudy sky can turn into dramatic sky.

It is not cold enough for snow. It is worm enough for tourists to walk around.

The bay is always calm.

It is taken fisherman wharf beside the Granville Island which formerly industrial aria and now a tourist spot in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

This area is not a tourist spot like the famous one in San Francisco…. but as you see, it is  a good spot to see the panorama of Downtown Vancouver.

Those photos are merged by Adobe Photoshop. 3 photos on the first one and 4 photos were used for the 2nd one.

Clouds in Autumn sky were creating perfect lighting in the evening.

It is the end of autumn and next week, our summer time is ending.

English Bay, Vancouver, B.C. Canada


English Bay, Vancouver BC Canada
English bay is located West end of Downtown Vancouver, BC.

This area has high volume of residence and due to the easy access from downtown, it is one of very busy beaches in Vancouver.

People come around to see the beautiful sunset.

This is something I took yesterday….well, tell the truth….it is done by Adobe Photoshop.

Those 2 girls were looking good…but I could not get good background with them. So, I removed the original background and used other one which was taken at the same time.

Panorama of Downtown Vancouver Nov.2012


Panorama Vancouver Nov, 2012We had a whole wet month and finally, we had a little bit sunny days last couple of days.

The view from this angle has changed quite a lot last 10 years. Before, it was an old industrial area by railroad has been re-developed as new residential area…..

The stadium in the middle now has a retractable roof which does not work properly raise the height dramatically and obstructing the view quite badly……or maybe it is the new landscape of Vancouver……

This is created by Photoshop.

The old house is from photography. Other things are brought from somewhere ales.

Grass is drawn by “Grass Brush”, Trees are brush too.

The goast background is based on this photo.

Fog and Clouds are brush too.

Personally I am not good at drawing…but Photoshop can create this kind of image quite easily.

Pumpkin is created from nothing.

American Taxi…..View of American city


Yellow Cab_Ford Crown Victoria

Yellow Cab Ford Crown Victoria……This is done by Photoshop on top of the other photo below.

When you go  to American cities, you will always see Yellow Cabs everywhere.

It is a part of American culture and also a part of American Landscape.

They have been using American Full size sedan for many years and lately it was monopoly of Ford Crow Victoria.

American cars are different from rest of the world. They are bigger and feel like cruise almost like land yacht.

For most of tourist, they will be the first American car to experience.

But, Ford Crown Victoria is already withdrawn and now, Toyota is now slowly taking over the position.

Yellow Cab…..Toyota  Prius

If you compare those 2 photos……the first one with Ford looks way better than the one with Toyota.

Today, it is getting harder to take Street photos in the United States. This is because of Imports especially Japanese cars. Like this example, The same street photo looks way better or more America like….with the Ford Crown Victoria.

Yellow Cab will slowly get rid of old American and shift to Japanese…..that is destroying culture and landscape of America too.
