I adore this look and it’s one only fashionistas with grey-blond hair can pull off so seamlessly. This photo was taken only a month ago and it makes me yearn for hot summer days.
This woman is so West End stylish; she looks hip, casual and she has great hair, essentials to downtown living.
This woman brings that California feel with her, even to rainy Vancouver. She was worried that she hadn’t done her hair that day and I told her if that’s an effortless hairdo for her, she’s doing everything right.
This woman is wearing the few items she was able to salvage from the wreckage after a house fire and she still looks fantastic. Her poodle woke her up during the fire, saving both of their lives!
A hobby painter, this woman was enjoying a break from the sun at my favorite (secret!) beach in Vancouver. She swims, paints and picnics here with her family to celebrate the life of her son, who lost his life to cancer. I watched her for a while, not certain whether or not to approach her, but then she pulled out this jazzy beach chair and I somehow knew she’d let me snap her photo.
I finally got out with my manual Pentax Spotmatic. I spotted this gorgeous woman watching the sea, smiling at English Bay.She has incredible style, not totally of this world. Notice the one lace arm. Take that Madonna!
Congratulations to Terra MacFronton from Richmond, B.C. for her rendition of Gramma June. You’ve won a custom made light box with your photos framed.

William F. Ting for photographing the GranPaparazzi team’s ancestral remakes, Danielle Marleau at Prep Work Hair Studio for donating your mad retro hair styling, and Little Miss Vintage and Lacey at Bye Napoleon for contest sponsorship.
In their late eighties, this couple wanted to warm up a bit before heading into English Bay for a dip in the sea.
Vancouver isn’t the only city with Funky dressers. I took this photo on a trip to Portland. This woman works in a vintage shop on Hawthorne Street. She was kind enough to ditch her shift and pose on this fab couch.
