Vancouver, originally called Gastown in 1867, then renamed Granville until the city became incorporated with the name of Vancouver in 1886. That is also where the name for Granville Street and Granville Bridge came from. The population of the Greater Vancouver area sure has grown over those years and now is home to over 2.4 million people.

My sister was spending an extended time in Vancouver last Fall and rented an apartment overlooking False Creek between the Burrard Bridge (left) and the Granville Street Bridge (right). It was a great opportunity to visit in the beautiful city of Vancouver and to enjoy the view which was an ever changing display of light and sounds. So began my attempt at photographing the beauty from dawn to dark.

The Burrard Bridge, often called the Burrard Street Bridge, was built 1930-1932 for 3 million dollars. The high central span allowed for ships to pass under as well as all those beautiful boats of today. The concrete towers are connected by overhead galleries that disguise the steel trusses and are embellished with sculptured details of architecture.
