This is my collection of photographs taken around Vancouver, BC, Canada, where it showcases the local scenes from Chinatown to East Vancouver to New Westminster. This is also a dedication to the community that helped shape throughout history. I used the time during the COVID-19 pandemic to photograph the current trends of today's city. You can check out or follow me on Lady Death Eye Photography. I'm an amateur photographer but I am always looking for people to shoot with for fun
