Greek Day on West Broadway - Street life in Vancouver!

Since everyone had such a good time at Italian Days on Commercial Drive, let's go to West Broadway and photograph Greek Days!

 

Greek day (www.greekday.com) is an annual festival on West Broadway. It is a day to celebrate all things Greek in Vancouver. There will be lots of food, drinks, people, entertainment and much much more to photograph.

On this photowalk you are welcome to bring any camera you like, if the only camera you have is a cameraphone, come along! You can (and should) bring your DSLR or any other camera and bring some additional lenses too, there will be lots of photo opportunities.

Where will we meet?

We will meet on the corner of West Broadway and Stephens, in front of the Safeway just before 11. The photo-walk will last 2 hours. West Broadway is closed between McDonald and Blenheim. Please feel free to stay as long as you like.  We won't meet up after the walk as connecting in the crowd is going to be tough.  Just enjoy!

How do I get there?

You can catch a bus or drive there. Check your route details on Google Map or at www.translink.ca

What else should I bring?

Good walking shoes, sunscreen and a hat
Camera and lenses

We are enthusiastic about photography and lovers of the City of Vancouver and the GVRD....however we are not qualified to answer any technical questions you may have...there may be more skilled members participating on the walk to answer your questions...if not Barry J. Brady has kindly offered to answer any questions by email.

AT ALL TIMES, PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF YOURSELF AND YOUR FELLOW PHOTO WALKERS, YOUR PROPERTY AND YOUR SURROUNDINGS!

AFTER THE MEET-UP DON'T FORGET TO UPLOAD FIVE OF YOUR BEST IMAGES.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Tracy, Jan and Kelly

    It was a nice day to be walking around...the festival itself didn't have the energy that Italian days did...maybe I was expecting too much

    Please...five to 8 photos only! The album has a limit...it is not fair to others if they can't post, because you have exceeded your limit. If you have posted more than five pictures, please go back and delete some of them..appreciate it.

    Is there any parking near by?

      I agree! I would say transit is probably the best option.... or park n' ride.
