Photographer's Note

Another shot in the mini-series I'm posting on the 20th anniversary of the opening of Vancouver's Expo 86. Expo 86 was a world's fair which helped to transform the city. The area surrounding False Creek (the body of water in the photo) used to be all industrial, but that was all moved or demolished to make way for the fair. After the fair ended, the land was converted to apartment buildings in a huge development that is continuing even 20 years later. It's a popular neihgbourhood with all the services you can imagine, including this water taxi (Aquabus) which will give you a ride across the water to the south side, for $1 or $2 depending on where you are going. I photographed this one was coming in to the dock, as it turns out, he was coming to pick me up because he thought I was waiting for a ride. I wasn't, and he was not too happy with me for standing at the (aqua)bus stop.
