It was the last Tuesday in April and it seemed as though the rest of the city was preoccupied with the hockey game taking place that evening. But we chose something else. Instead, we were exploring downtown Vancouver’s empty streets and small parks, following the sea wall through Coal Harbour, chasing down rainbows springing up at the Waterfront. These weren’t just just your average rainbows. No. These were full, vivid arcs stretching out over the entire horizon upon a deep, contrasting canvas. Lucky enough we had one camera to capture some of the beauty, but the photo doesn’t do quite enough to replicate the scene. We stayed to admire the glow for a good 20 minutes before it began to fade. Afterwards we stopped in a lonely little shop for some incredible gelato and then headed back home before the hockey game would end and the city streets would erupt with the noise of crazy Canucks fans.
