Lumière is an annual event here in Vancouver that is said to be inspired by light and artistic expression. A few minutes walk from our apartment, at English Bay, is the current home to one of this year’s 4 public installations. Recently, on my way home from work one evening, I decided to check it out.
Various light statues dot the area, and I was just one of dozens of people who was there to take a closer look.
Across the street, at the entrance to the beach stood a tree. I couldn’t help but notice the contrast of the cool white lights against the backdrop of the colourful sunset.
As I stood snapping the above photo I noticed that the tree was starting to change colour.
The only thing I wish I had done differently was to grab an hot chocolate at one of the close by coffee shops to fight the cold air.
If you’re in the area, I definitely suggest checking out Lumière At English Bay.
