This is Vancouver as viewed from Portside Park. I got the idea for this shot from a small painting which hangs in the bathrooms at the Hilton hotel in Burnaby. I think it was painted from roughly the same location. The small park is wedged between the harbour and the railyard and it took me a while to figure out how to get here on foot. Once I did, I found myself walking through a small field at night and ended up tripping in the dark. Fortunately I had the presence of mind to use my head to soften the blow to my heavy camera. A little scratched up but with camera intact, I managed to get this shot looking back on Vancouver at night.
