19 for 19: Fotograms from 2019 (IG)

Above/Featured: Vancouver Central (VPL) – 11 November.

I look back at 2019 through 19 images posted on social media, continuing a consecutive string of year-end reviews. With the following images made entirely in the metropolitan Vancouver area, a number of questions about places past and present were raised; what remained elusive were clear answers about home and belonging.

•⁣ ⁣People of the Squamish First Nation named a landmark at this location “X̱áywá7esks” or “Kiwahusks” in Anglicized form. The meaning is “narrow passage” or “two points exactly opposite” for the two opposing north and south spits of land jutting out into the sea waters now known as False Creek. Excavation and landfill in the early 20th-century turned the area dry for industry and freight. Heavy industry is essentially gone, and with a ton of commuters passing through daily on bus and SkyTrain, the area today has a commercial-residential mix with developers ravenous for more. Climate change forecasts indicate the area (and this very spot) will eventually be under water again and return to the sea; check out @climatecentral’s “Coastal Risk Screening Tool”.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Northwest view at Main Street & Terminal Avenue: Vancouver, 🇨🇦 – 20191119.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣#fujifilmx70 #fujix70 #x70⁣ #fujifilm_x70 #fujifilm_x #fujixseries #fujixlovers #myfujifilm #myfujifilmlegacy #yvr_streetphoto •

      Thanks, Amy! Shall I assume you mean your favorites are numbers 1, 3, and 11, because I didn’t include any images from either January or March 2019? 😅
