Vancouver Eastside Thanksgiving on Instagram

In Canada, the Thanksgiving holiday occurs on the second Monday in October. The shorter growing season ends earlier at higher northern latitudes compared to the United States, which also explains their “turkey holiday” towards the end of November.

Beautiful weather in mid-October got me to thinking about how I would view Thanksgiving Day in my neighbourhood. I’ve been back in Vancouver, Canada for a number of weeks, and I’ve been relearning the Strathcona neighbourhood on the city’s east side. The saying goes: “the more things change, the more they stay the same …” That’s especially true after being away for almost twenty years.


“I am a leaf on the wind … watch how I soar …”

I made all of the photos above on Thanksgiving (Mon)Day, 14 October 2013. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.
