Fotoeins Friday: Tuna poke nachos, West Vancouver’s Beach House

July 2014.

Carol Perehudoff is a Toronto-based travel writer who is briefly visiting Vancouver. I join her for an early-evening dinner at The Beach House next to Dundarave Pier in West Vancouver. The first recommendation is tuna poke nachos, which Carol correctly describes as: “… light and fresh and about as un nacho-like as you can get.” The explosion of colour consists of togarashi wontons, fresh tuna, cucumber, avocado and tomato poke, mango coulis, sliced serranos, and crushed macadamias.

We’d be happy if this was all we had on this warm summer evening.

With beer and wine.

But not at the same time.

Because that’d be weird.

And because we’re sitting on the restaurant’s patio, there’s a view across the water to First Narrows, Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park, and English Bay (Salish Sea). But we’re only paying attention to ze nachos …

I made the photo above on 19 July 2014 with the Canon EOS6D, EF 24-105 f/4L zoom-lens, and the following settings: f/11, 1/320s, ISO400, and 60mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7nI.

Another 16-hour Canada Day marathon in Vancouver (2014)

The forecast called for a hot mostly sunny day to celebrate Canada’s national holiday on the 1st of July. It’s another invitation to continue exploring my birthplace here in Vancouver, British Columbia. Spanning a period of 16-plus hours including sunrise and sunset, I’ve collected 20 photographs among 100 kilometres (60 miles) of travel throughout the region. This year’s marathon follows last year’s debut effort.
