I took the seabus back to North Van a few nights ago. Usually I hate the seabus, because it feels so slow (I love ferries and boats in general, not sure why I dislike the seabus so, but anyways), but that night I sat on the side facing the north shore, and was faced by these beautiful hulking metal monsters. I moved immediately to the seats right against the window and pulled out my camera, feeling like a tourist. The picture isn't very sharp, it was pretty dark and I didn't want to use the flash, but you get the idea.
I love the cranes on the Vancouver waterfront. They have always reminded me of dinosaurs, reaching with their long necks. To me they are iconic Vancouver. I don't care that they exist in other cities, if I see them I will always think of home.
