Outside My Window TodayThe view out my 18th floor window at around 10 AM today. They do get some fog here. I don't know why it isn't more famous because it sure comes in fast, at unusual hours of the day, and it's pretty thick. I heard the fog before I actually saw it, while I was still in bed I could hear more than the usual number of foghorns from the harbour. At work a few weeks ago, on a clear sunny day, I saw what I thought was a very fast moving wall of smoke funnelling into the harbour from the direction of Stanley Park. It's been very dry here so I assumed Stanley Park was on fire, especially since it was 2 pm. It took quite a long time to convince me it was actually fog.
I was at work today (Sunday), and heard a racket outside the window and saw a helicopter between my building and the one across the street. By the time I got my camera out it had moved to where it is here. I was not entirely surprised to see it because they are shooting a film on the roof of our building, and I can see the film set in the reflection of the glass of the building opposite. They do quite a lot of film and television in Vancouver, just about every day I see evidence of it.
