gastown sightseeing

we’ve moved offices, and now i find myself on the corner of abbott and water, staring at the harbour centre, waterfront station, the vancouver sun building, the rail yards that i’m next to, and a big crane that is helping in the demolition of the water street parkade.

it is a fabulous view, and if i had a digital camera at my disposal at the moment i would take a photo for you.

perhaps the most wonderful part is being near the rail yards, which i love. while the sound of railcars being joined together is a bit loud, i like looking at graffiti that has made its way here from all over the country.

as well, i’m currently considering working on a monograph on the mating rituals of the common pigeon. i can see onto the roof of the building next to us, and get to watch the curious behaviour of pigeons in love (or whatever it is pigeons fall into).

while moves are never stress free, it has been a joy to move back into a busier area as opposed to the quieter industrial zone several blocks to the east we previously resided in.

perhaps one of the best parts is that i can now get to work in just under an hour, a travel record for this weary commuter.
