Skyline's Pictures

Rome Skyline
Rome Skyline (Nikon D5000)

It was the Vatican and the Cistine Chappel today since it was closed yesterday. Of course since it was closed yesterday it was twice as busy today which made it hard going. I think the main problem with it is that there is so much hype about it so when you do get to see it after all the effort, queues and crowds, it all appears to be a little bit of a let down. Don't get me wrong the Cistine chappel is impressive but because it was at the end of the tour I sort of wanted to get gone. Mind you a walk along the river at around sunset as the starlings were turning tricks in the sky was much more acceptable. The picture is of a sillohete of the skyline to the left of Peter's Basilica, unfortunately due to the brightnes of the scene the Auto Focus didn't do it's job and IT failed to notice so it is slitly out of focus, still I like it so here it is.

Thats Another Fine Mess Youve Got Me Into
Thats Another Fine Mess Youve Got Me Into (Orange San Francisco)

...Stanley park is where I'm standing. On a no rules day I was unprepared for how unruley the day was to become. After initially heading to Vancouver to see the city, this was as far as we got to the city on foot, after that it and after a few hours in Stanley Park the only other contact with the city wasa drive through Vancouver stopping at every junction at red lights or to wait for pedestrians to cross. Canada jas the same daft idea of throwing cars on green into pedestrians crossing. Mind you daft traffic signals are not the preseve of the Canadians.

Anyway Stanley Park is quite nice you gave the bustling port full of tankers and seaplanes and liners all around as well as a flotila of other small private boats racing around. The park contains walks and rides abd a nice fat two lane road that skirts the coast so if you've eaten far too many doughnuts then ther is no need to walk anywhere.

The picture is of downtown Vancouver from the park, a huge skyrise place with as yet nothing much to be seen when you get there, however that is from the point of view of the driver and to be honest I was mainly concentrating on not hitting anything and keeping in the right lane.
