There’s a Sepia Filter on Vancouver

Due to wildfires throughout BC, metro Vancouver was enveloped in sepia-toned smoke yesterday. Typically, the smell would make me feel nostalgic—reminding me of sitting around a campfire. But the smoke was so thick and inescapable yesterday, it was scary.

A couple of weeks ago, I visited Kitsilano “Kits” Beach at sunset and took some photos. I returned to the same spot last night so I could help showcase the drastic difference we’re experiencing across the city.

Those unfamiliar with the area, look carefully: You can barely make out the silhouette of downtown Vancouver’s tall buildings, just north of Kits beach. Air quality seems to have improved today, but there’s still an advisory in place for those vulnerable to breathing problems. I’m hopeful that rain will appear in the forecast soon.
