Every day we share a single photo from our Flickr Pool shot by one of our faithful and talented readers (that’s you!).
Weather is a pretty big deal in Vancouver. Ever-changing. Elusive to accurately predict. Usually wet, but also usually fairly warm. But one thing that many Vancouverites will agree on, is that only Vancouverites may complain about the weather. David Duchovny of The X-Files ruffled some feathers in 1997 when he described Vancouver as having "400 inches of rainfall a day" and as being "kind of like a tropical rain forest without the tropics". In 2000, while a member of the Vancouver Grizzlies, Othella Harrington made no local friends when he opined of Vancouver that "it's a beautiful city - when you can see it."
Perhaps weather is a state of mind. A case of turning lemons into lemonade. A case of lemonade. And I just happen to like lemonade.
Of course, when faced with weather-related adversity we could also try what Hiestun.Photography did, and that is to rise above it all, quite literally, for a different perspective on things. The result is this photograph titled North Tower.
