Granville Bridge

Tully Rohrer

September 10th, 2007

This is the bridge over Granville Island in Vancouver, BC. Katie and I agreed that Vancouver was not necessarily the prettiest city (in terms of architecture, anyway), but the city did have a lot of character. It was a great place to stay for a few days.

Rather than post a song of the day today, I compiled all the music I’ve posted since I made the January Optic Distraction mixtape. I set them up as monthly lists, and I went back and added them to the first image of each new month. Browse the collection and enjoy!
