Saturday Snapshot: Vancouver Landscapes

Last weekend, I took a trip up to Vancouver to visit a friend.  Today, some pretty water-and-mountains photos.  Maybe another week I’ll post about the botanical gardens!

This sculpture is a “Digital Orca,” and the sign says it’s melding natural elements with technology.  Everyone agrees it looks like it’s made out of Legos…

Visit West Metro Mommy for more Saturday Snapshots.  Have a great weekend!

  1. That’s really cool! Do you fly or is there a train?

    I used to live up in the Pacific Northwest (Washington), so I always feel a little big nostalgic when I see things like this. 🙂 Love the ‘Lego’ Orca, haha!

  2. I lived in Vancouver so it always has a special place in my heart, it’s always so beautiful, there was no Lego orca back then though. Nice to see an updated view.

    Lego was the first thing I thought of when I saw it too!
    I imagine at certain angles you could make the sculpture look like it was breaching the water behind it.

    Great pictures! I’ve been to BC many times, but I’ve never actually been to Vancouver. I should remedy that sometime!

  5. Lovely pics. Yes, that Orca sure looks like it’s made with Lego. I think that’s close by the Olympic flame during the last Winter Games, isn’t it?

    Looks great… the whale seems to be built from Lego’s 🙂 ooopss… i am not copying Lynn’s comment… it seriously looks like it…

    The pictures are great… thanks for sharing…

  7. I admit, the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw that Orca was “Is that made with giant LEGO blocks?” Although on second glance they do look rather more like giant pixels than LEGO blocks to me.

    I hope you had a good time visiting your friend! The pictures turned out gorgeous. Thank you for sharing. ^_^
