Cherry Blossoms at Burrard Station

Arguably one of the most photographed locations during the spring is the Burrard Station when the Cherry Blossoms are in bloom.

I understand the pink blossoms belong to the Akebono cherry trees.

Interestingly, the fellow facing the camera looks a lot like I did in years past.

Burrard Station is in the heart of downtown Vancouver.


Vancouver Convention Centre III

Adjacent to the West building of the Vancouver Convention Centre is the Jack Poole Plaza, named in honour of Jack Poole, who was responsible for securing the bid of the 2010 Winter Olympics and 2010 Winter Paralympics to Vancouver.

On the Plaza is the 2010 Olympic Flame that, due to cost concerns, only has it’s flame lit on special occasions.
