October 28th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, The Twisty Route|

October 28, 2017 - One has to take advantage of sunny days in Vancouver at this time of year because they can be few and far between. It’s a standard joke that it rains here pretty much from October until May. Except it’s not really much of a joke. So when the sun comes out [...]
