That's a good one. This is the best I can do:


"Beaver, ahoy!""The bridge is like a magnet, attracting both pedestrians and over 30,000 vehicles daily who enjoy the views of Victoria's harbour. The skyline may change, but "Big Blue" as some call it, will always be there."

Wow, excellent work people. Those all qualify! The pic I posted is not mine (less points for me!), it's one taken by Battling Apathy's on Flickr. Of course an underwater shot of the old turtle fountain in the Bay Centre. Shame they took that fountain away.

Two nice shots gumgum, the Ogden point one is rather eerie. It's as if hundreds of people were abducted, shipped by bus to this location where they were then beamed up to waiting alien space ships.

Also a nice shot of heavy machinery with the arena in the background.

HW, yes, I would say your pic qualifies as well! I only noticed now the sign above the girl's head on the far right..."Fresh Cu.." Is that coffee shop's name Fresh Cup? Or does it spell Fresh Coffee?

From my foggy memory I think I took this photo behind Fifth Street Bar and Grill, but then again I could be wrong.
