I had a chance to visit the Show and Shine car event in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia this month. It was an impressive collection of automobiles that filled the streets of downtown PoCo. Lots of people, music, laughs and of course, big, beautiful, shiny cars.
Spotted on this morning's rainy commute as this 501 streetcar struggled to cross Leslie Street at Queen. It was having mechanical problems and ended up stalled in the middle of the intersection blocking my ability to make a left. I decided to take a couple of pictures while I waited, mentally wished the driver luck, and eventually passed the streetcar with a u-turn back to Leslie.

My goal is to capture a spark of magic in the ordinary, connect with nature within the urban oasis, and better appreciate the subtle beauty and irony that surround us.
