The highrises in Vancouver are all shapes and sizes, but some look strikingly similar when you look at them from a distance.

Peering into the balconies with a zoom lens seems as if it might be a bit intrusive. Despite that, the effect of seeing a series of close-ups of Vancouver high rises is nothing less than stunning--shapes, lines and forms that appear to be geometrically perfect.

 These image show you how detailed the collaboration of architects, designers and construction workers can create such artistic looking works when one small part of the building is magnified in a photograph.

Using a zoom lens, though you can get a peek at how each one is different and, at times, view the activities of the residents. Living in these giant buildings gives the impression of a densely populated city with people packed in decorated boxes that soar into the sky.

These images were taken on a summer afternoon when the sky was clear with pleasant temperatures in the 70s about ten years ago.
