Happy February, guys!
Well, I said I’d get pictures while I was gone. And I did. Lots of lovely ones. And usually I limit myself to 10 pictures per post, but I really couldn’t decide. It’s 12 this time. Just this once, okay?
Anyway. So this was my first time in Vancouver. And it was awesome and there was lots to take pictures of, despite the fact it was rainy and stupefyingly cold the whole time we were there.
Gastown pictures first!
Dad described this as “sort of Vancouver’s steampunk town”. It’s accurate.
Fun with selective black and white.
This clock runs on an actual steam engine. Like, guys… this is legitimately steampunk.
Another angle and filter because it’s just too cool.
Look at it go. All the steam. 🙂
Up the clock.
And up the corner of the clock. Rain was on my camera, but it sort of made a cool effect that way.
Now pictures from Stanley Park. Or, to be more specific…
Aren’t the two little umbrella-d people down there cute? ❤
*cue Horatio Hornblower music*
And the famous bridge. 🙂
Hope you all enjoyed! Have you ever been to Vancouver? Which picture is your favorite?

Pretty pictures! Wow, a clock that runs on steam? That’s really cool! 🙂
Thanks! Yeah, I KNOW! It’s so cool. 🙂 Real life steampunk! XP
The photos are great! 🙂
Thank you! 😀
I loved the one with the two people with umbrellas. i really want to take photos or film there now. X-D
I KNOW! I peeked over the edge and saw those two sitting there. It was so perfect. 😛 But it’s weird, because like EVERYONE there has umbrellas as opposed to the practically no one in Seattle. Maybe no one has suggested that umbrellas are wimpy up there. XD
UMBRELLAS! I ship it X-D This is my new OTP. X-D
Congratulations! You’ve officially started a meme–the Umbrella Ship! X-D
(I started one by accident. I recently started a Tumblr blog because there were Eighth Doctor fans on there and one of my friends was too and I tagged one of my posts “precious disaster pigeon” and now apparently other people use that nickname for Eight. Um, oops? 😛
Um… yay? 😛 Oh, hey! This is a perfect OTP because there could literally be anyone under those umbrellas. XD Yay umbrella ship! I should make a photo edit…
UMBRELLA SHIP!!! X-D I’m going to have to write fanfiction of them. 😛
I will definitely have to see that. XD
Hey, I was wanting to ask. May I please use the umbrella couple picture for an essay I’m doing for school? I need to analyze a visual source and the umbrella ship just provoked so much interest!
Yeabsolutely. I’m flattered. 🙂 I must see the essay, though. 😉
Thank you! 😀 I might post it on my blog after I get my grade on it, but I’ll email it to you as soon as I finish it. 🙂
Can’t wait to see it! 🙂
Is it okay if I use your name and blog address in my paper as well?
