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.

Vancouver city by day

I was born and raised in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I left Vancouver in 1994, and for the next 17 years, I hadn’t spent more than one to two weeks in any subsequent visit.

I returned to Vancouver on 2012 January 4 after leaving job, career, and country of residence behind. In the six following weeks, I discovered new aspects to my hometown, and rediscovered “old” things I hadn’t encountered in over 20 years.

With this gallery, I’m showing parts to Vancouver which make the city beautiful and compelling. Anyone can find these gems for themselves at no charge, apart from the cost of public transit, because, really, why are you driving around town? Another gallery showing Vancouver at night will be posted very soon.

Here is some more photo goodness from Vancouver:

I made the photos above on January 2011, January 2012, and February 2012. This post is published on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.
