Rain and fall — back together again

October 24, 2014

Underwater photography from Thursday morning on West Broadway.

Vancouver can boast no super couples  with the star power to rival Hollywood’s Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, or “Brangelina” as they’re popularly conflated. No “Bennifer” (Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez) and no Hilltons” — that would be former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former U.S. President Bill Clinton, if they went in for cheap tabloid portmanteaus, which they don’t.

But Vancouver does have rain and fall which have hooked up in the city every October  for as long as anyone can remember.

Showered with affection or what?


Wednesday evening, West Broadway became a tributary of the Fraser River.

Well it’s that time of year again. When I arrived at the McDonald’s in the 1400 block of West Broadway Avenue at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday morning,”rainfall” (as the couple is commonly called)  was picking up where they had left off last evening — hard and heavy. Which is as it should be this time of year.

But sometimes I do wish they’d just get a room somewhere. Click the images to enlarge them.

    With Vancouver’s rainy weather, Rain and Fall’s evil spawn have been proliferating. Colorful red mushrooms, are popping up along the Arbutus corridor and, as with most redheads, are pretty but potentially deadly. Amanita Muscaria they’re called (or, if you like, Human Eater – Must Scare Ya, timed perfectly for Halloween!)


    • Ha! I bet it would be fun to be your therapist! 🙂 Thanks so much for the heads up. I will make tracks down to the Arbutus corridor tracks to get some photos of the deadly things. Might these “fire ‘shrooms” also be deadly to fire ants?
