Farewell Cascadia (for now) - a photo dump
In the end of January I moved away from Greater Vancouver, BC, and while
I hope to return some day the future is open. I think the Pacific
Northwest will always have a very special place in my heart.
Anyway, while checking through my phone I found (as one does) a bunch of photos.
Most were taken in or around North Vancouver during Summer 2015. Playing
around with them I decided to see if I could put together a small photo
essay of that time.
Not sure if I succeeded, but enjoy.
