Montreal, yous crazy.

Montreal

So I just came back on tuesday  from a 6 day stint in Montreal for the Easter long week-end. I was talking with my friend Ivy and was like “I just realized I have a 6 day weekend…I should come visit you in Montreal.” That was basically how I ended up going. Everyone who knows me, knows that this is very out of character as I’m usually a pretty boring/not adventurous person, but I’m glad I made the trip.

Montreal was amazing. This was the first time I’ve really visited a city outside of BC (apart from Layovers in Toronto) and I had the time of my life. Arriving to a 24 degree summer-like day, the city was incredible and packed with people walking and enjoying the weather. The streets reminded me of a psuedo Canadian/French Paris/Vancouver (if that made sense). My photos don’t do the city justice (this is only the first batch) because I was too busy looking at everything and enjoying the sights to really focus on taking pictures (whoops). But anyways, thanks to all the amazing people I met on the trip, you all made it extremely memorable. Montreal, as cheesy as it sounds, pretty life altering, in my eyes. This was the first time I’ve done some ‘adventurous’ traveling and I know it won’t be my last. It was a nice reminder to just chill out, step out of your comfort zone and meet some awesome people.

The end of the Olympics

It was the perfect ending to the most imperfect of starts. A gold medal in our game, in our home and 2 Olympics records set. The streets were flooded with red and white, chants, cheers and O’Canada’s. What turned out to be one of the oldest international sporting events was the spark Vancouver needed to show its pride for Canada. You’ll be missed.

A-maze-ing Laughter.

I think I’m gonna have to start a project to find the Biennale Art Exhibits around Vancouver and photograph them because they’re pretty awesome. Here are the ones by Yue Minjun at English Bay entitled “A-maze-ing Laughter”. In case you’re unfamiliar with this exhibit, it’s a public showcase of art around Vancouver. You can find the website here and the rest of my pictures here.

2010 Challenges. Week 4: Resolutions, The City

2010: Week 4 Resolutions, originally uploaded by jchiang17.

Love this city. That’s my resolution, to love and appreciate one of the greatest cities in the world, Vancouver. I hate this place so much sometimes, but it’s my home, it’s where I’ve been the last 19 years and I love it despite everything else. This is the concrete jungle of the Pacific Northwest.
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
