    This, of Vancouver, British Columbia, was taken in December, 1968, from a Maritime Museum, with a 1956 Kodak Retina IIc, # 633592. I think I was using Kodachrome, but maybe it was Ectachrome. I saw the scene, positioned to get a better view, snapped it, & then more or less forgot about it until I got the slides back, & noticed that it was actually a pretty good photo. It could use a little contrast, but maybe that's the mist that hung in the air.

    I wonder what it looks like from this vantage point today.

    Composition wise, subject wise, I agree that it's a good photo. Looks like it's gone a bit magenta, though. You could have a play with it, if you're so inclined, and get some white back into that snow.

    I agree with Mike that it would be interesting to see that vantage point today. Very nice shot!

    Oh wow, so cool-almost fifty years ago! I love the way slide film captures look when scanned (or when projected!). I appreciated hearing some of the background information regarding the capture and camera.

    The main difference you'd see today is that the buildings have gone from 15 - 20 stories to 40 - 50 stories.

    Nice, pretty quite image. It's great that it is 50 years ago.
