Let's go for a hike

Random photos of my last two hikes around where I live. In case you missed it, you can see a photo of the panorama of the place where I took the first two photographies by clicking here.

In the middle of nowhere I stumble on this sign. Totally unexpected !

I own a Fujifilm Instax camera. For those of you who don't know it, an Instax Camera takes small polaroids.

In the village where I live, we have a castle...

Vancouver: Stanley Park and the English Bay

Vancouver part 2: sunny this time! Parks, mountains, animals and sea made my Sunday there one year ago. In other words, lots of nature - the reason that makes Vancouver such a great city to be/live in.

Departure from North Vancouver, waiting for the bus, we had a great view...

Upon arrival, off to the left to the great Stanley Park!

The park even contains some Totem poles.

Another famous part of the city: The English Bay.

Eventually, I've always had this thing about seeing a raccoon in Canada, first of all because we don't have raccoons in France and second of all because this is the cliché I had about Canada. The Stanley Park made my dream come true :-)

Happy Earth Day! [Panorama of the French Alps]

Considering it's Earth Day, here is a quick panorama I took yesterday with my point-and-shoot camera to illustrate why it's important to save our planet.

This is where I spent part of yesterday's afternoon with some friends. I feel lucky to live in a region where I only have to drive 15 minutes to see that.

Click on the photography to see a much, much bigger version :-)

Vancouver: One Year Later

Part 1 of photos I took last year in Vancouver, Canada during my very short stay.

Sadly, I discovered that I didn't take that many photos of the city if not any... I'm blaming the rain. I will post more photos in the next following days - sunny and nature-oriented photos.

Welcome to Gastown! (the Historic Vancouver)

Originally the sign on the photo below said "Alife Is Beautiful". Photoshop did the rest to suit my mood better ;-)

The street above led straight to the Steam Clock, the one big attraction in Gastown. It's pretty cool if you ask me, I'd totally see Sherlock Holmes walking close by. Or maybe it's jst me.

Cute signs and lights.

One rare photo taken in Downtown Vancouver...
