    First time to New Brighton Park located on the Burrard Inlet by the Second Narrows Bridge in Vancouver. It's right by some train tracks so it's not that accessible.

    In fact, you go through a "Happy Graffiti" tunnel


    It's a dog friendly park (I posted this in the animal thread but the collie is such a looker, he gets an encore performance :)

    Fall color photos on a typical cool grey day

    I admit it I made this leaf pose for this shot :tongue:

    Last shot sums it "Autumn benches are lonely benches"

    Kevin, your grey day made for beautiful fall colors - including that "happy graffiti". Besides the clear tug at my heartstrings by your first, my favorite of all is the lone leaf resting on the decking...that slender red stem, the leaf's color and the background all came together absolutely perfectly.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. As I think about it, fall is a wonderful time for outdoor photography - lots of color, ambience and less crowded. It will be hard to stay indoors.
