Vancouver, BC - from a different angle!

Yes, there is more to Vancouver than Queen Elizabeth Park, which I do seem to go on about.
So without further ado I give you a taste of Vancouver from a different angle.
This short movie is of Vancouver’s West End and surrounding area - I took the pictures and movie images, that make up this film, from Vanier Park, site of the Maritime Museum and home to some beautiful, serene waterfront.
Following is my first attempt at movie making - I am having fun working with iMovie, a feature built into my Mac.

Thank you for following, for commenting, for being out there and in here. 


  1. Happy to have you back on line :)

  2. Dear Claudia,

    It is so sweet of you to always drop by and leave your notes of happiness.
    I'm glad you to see your smiling avatar in my comment area - you are like the sunshine I had on the day I did this walkabout.

    Thank you for being a wonderful blogging friend.

    Hugs, Jenny

  3. Hi Jenny,
    Love Vancouver and yes, iMovie is so much fun. Hubby and I are enjoying making videos of our trips using that technology.

  4. That was lovely -- thanks for sharing it. :)

  5. Very nice. And nicely done. I've always loved seaside towns. If I ever escape from this midwest hell I will never venture too far away from the ocean again. I think I'm drying out.

  6. Great job! Beautiful photos! iMovie is pretty awesome eh? :D

  7. oh, fantastic! thankyou. I'm inspired to take the plunge and try. I remember getting a really bad qritique at school the only time I ever tried making a viedo (or whatever we had way back then) and have never tried again. You've made it seem almost possible for mere mortals to do something really good. Sue

  8. That is really nice, Jenny. Kiddo loves her iMovie too. I think you did a great job.

  9. Vancouver seems awesome. iMovie seems like it's the way forward, if only I didn't own a PC! :(

  10. GREAT JOB! So, my Mac can do that? Geez, I really oughta read the owners manual.
    Like I said, great job!

    I think I remember you mentioning you've been here and enjoyed it - what’s not to love, right?!

    As to iMovie - I have been taking lots of One to One classes and am just loving it!

    You’ll all be overrun with “Movies by Jenny” over the next while as I tweak and fine tune my skills.

    Thanks for dropping by - I do love sharing my city - maybe a little too much, eh? :)


    Thank you! I do love living by the water, no doubt, but when I go to arid, barren parts of my own province, like in the Cariboo - I love it just as much.

    I live by this motto - If you can’t live in the place you love, love the place you live in! It works!

    Miss CP

    Moo is tickled you dropped by and checked out her movie - a work in progress!

    Yes...iMovie is pretty awesome, but you are more awesome for helping me with it!

    Cheers, Jenny

    Don’t be discouraged by past comments, just dive in to it.
    If you have iMovie I recommend taking a moment, or two, and watch the videos, located in Help, on the navigation menu at the top of your screen.

    These videos have been amazing and so easy to follow. Mind you, the One to One sessions have been the icing on my cake.


    Thanks for dropping by. The kids always get this much quicker, don’t they? My daughter is always two big steps ahead of me when it comes to movie making...but, I’m catching up!


    Thanks for taking a look at my movie. You mention you don’t own a PC - does that mean you have a Mac, because iMovie is built into Macs.

    I know there are lots of similar programs for PC too!

    THANK YOU! Yes, your trusty little Mac can do this! Check it out and make a movie.

    By the way, most of this “movie” was done with still images and just using the pan left to right feature or zooming in and out!

    It’s too cool!

    Cheers, Jenny
