Vancouver Smoke Clouds

Sure, it was disappointing to see the cup go to the Bruins tonight, but what was most disappointing… shocking… disgusting… was the eventual outcome of the crowd who went on to riot and destroy downtown Vancouver.  I don’t consider those people to be hockey fans, and it’s embarrassing to see what they were capable of and using the loss of the game as an excuse to act like fools.  As I walked away from my city’s downtown core I took a few shots of the smoke rising from whatever they were setting fire to at the time.

Oh, and did you catch that moon?
