In yesterday's comment to Daniel's (dkmurphy) upload of a charming street in Malta, Craig (mcjake) said not to expect something like that in Vancouver.
With this picture I d'like to prove him wrong. This row of victorian houses, built between 1893 and 1895, can be found not far from the public library at Hamilton Street in downtown Vancouver. They form a pleasant contrast to the surrounding blue glass and steel sky scraper that make up most of the unique modern Vancouver style.

A very beautiful row of Victorian houses. San Francisco is famous for its Victorian houses (the Painted Ladies) but apparently Vancouver has them also. I didn't know that.
You have framed this view excellently with the greenery.
Best regards, Paul

Well, I think you have certainly disproved Craig's theory! Of course, Craig loves modern buildings built from blue glass and steel.
You have captured this attractive row of Victorian houses perfectly. The diagonal composition is very pleasing and that is reinforced by the diagonal fence in the near foreground. The lamppost is perfectly placed in the frame and the picture is nicely framed by the trees on either side.
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

These lovely old houses have very neat looking gardens. I like the natural framing of the trees that you have used. You found a lovely area of Vancouver to photograph. Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

hello Daniel, isn't it strange that every one sees something else as interesting? I find it fantastic. This is why I like to be guide in my city, very often I see something new or in different way.
We saw so many photos from Vancouver but you found something new and fascinating. And I prefer these neat Victorian houses and gardens than high sky scrapers :). Marvelous view.
have a nice week

So you're proving me wrong eh? Haha...
Yes there are houses like this in Vancouver :)
In fact you will find thousands of these homes along 1st Ave street.....ok...maybe not thousands but you get the drift :)
Its a good find on your part and i like how you have photographed them. They look pristine and newly painted....which goes against many of the Victorian style homes i see in Vancouver....you certainly have a good batch here.
Many of the Victorian homes here are in much need of repair and upkeep, and thats mainly because of their age and to the fact the homes are mostly rentals, so the occupants just dont provide as much care for the home.
So as i said, you have a great selection. I'm impressed :)
Fine post from Vancouver

A lot of these house are an inheritance out of 1850 and later with the a lot migrants
These colours are pleasant to look at.
All it seem so soft with a nice presentation.
Lovely architectural view about these houses.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
