Canada Day 150: the 5th annual marathon (2017)

Featured: Of the 150 people to become new Canadian citizens, 3 of the youngest Canadians cut into the cake for the cameras on Canada’s 150th birthday at the Citizenship Ceremony held inside the Vancouver Convention Centre.

For the 5th consecutive year, I’m out and about on the Canadian national holiday. 2017 is a special year with the sesquicentennial or 150 years as a nation. Over a “marathon” lasting 16 hours from about 5am to 9pm, I’m going from one part of Vancouver to another of the metropolitan area to photograph people and locations dressed up or covered in red; many events are happening on the city’s waterfront at Canada Place.

Here are 17 photographs for Canada Day, 1 July 2017.

16 for 16: 4th consecutive Canada Day, Vancouver (2016)

Canada Day, 1 July 2016.

For the 4th consecutive year, I’m out and about on the Canadian national holiday for a few hours to photograph people and surroundings in my birthcity of Vancouver. Unlike past years, I’ve stayed entirely within the vicinity of Canada Place and the city’s Convention Centre. For this 2016 edition, here are 16 shots with an abundance of red and white. Enjoy!
