Sam Kee Building

The building on the left, with the flag in the window, is separate from the building with the bay windows. 
If you doubt this take it up with Guinness, not me.
Who says Vancouver isn't famous for anything but scenery and overpriced real estate?

I love this picture. It's got a bit of a Fred Herzog feel to it.

Forget it Jake, it's Chinatown.

Thanks Lou, as far as I know Fred always held his camera straight :-)

Anyone curious about Fred Herzog can see some examples of his work at

'You're a very nosy fellow kitty cat…' one of the great movie scenes Karin (in my humble opinion)

Majorly cool colors going on (besides the interesting facts and all). I'll take up a Guinness to that. . . oh, you mean check the record book. :-). The old Chinese gentleman reminds me of I guy I photographed in SF a couple years ago.

Thanks for the wonderfully encouraging comments Kim.

Love the baywindow building. Can't think of words for the skinny building... do people walk sideways in it?
