AdHack is hosting a 2nd photowalk to shoot Olympic advertising (preferably the un-official kind) tomorrow, February 18th @ 3pm, meeting at Stadium Skytrain station, to help get some photos for our contest at http://olympicadawards.com. After the photowalk, it’s beers at the On the Edge pub to watch Canada vs. Switzerland men’s hockey.

Vancity is buzzing with activities in preparation and anticipation for the coming Winter Games.
In 22 days, Vancouver will host the world with Glowing hearts!
Flags and banners are starting to appear in all corners of the city.
VANOC venue access tents (aka security check points) are being erected, these can be found just on the west side of BC Place, one of the main entrance for the 2010 Opening and Closing Ceremonies as well as for the Nightly Victory Ceremonies.
Deliveries are arriving, as seen here on Pacific Avenue, across from BC Place.
Fan gathering places are starting to pop up all over the city. Two examples seen here at Library Square on Georgia and Homer as well as at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Robson and Hornby.
Roads are being closed all over the city, these photos taken around GM Place.
Games sponsors are making themselves known as they manifest themselves on the sides of entire buildings and on various billboards. This one partially completed can be seen from the corner of Hornby and Georgia.
Fences are going up and security is starting to tighten, as you can see here at GM Place, just outside the Costco entrance.
GM’s fleet of sponsored vehicles is ready to crawl the city.
Stages are being built for upcoming entertainment acts. This one is found beside the skating rink at Robson Square.
And of course we have the Vancouver Police Department roaming the streets on horseback!
With three weeks remaining before the world visits our beautiful city, I’m sure we will continue to see the city transform for this exciting world event!
Make sure you start planning, this is the perfect time to get your game plan sorted before the storm hits Vancouver… Plan your movement and your schedule wisely, it will be wild…

With 24 days remaining on the countdown clock today, the city is quickly filling up with Winter Games sponsored advertising. Here are a few examples I captured on a short downtown photowalk this afternoon.
One sponsor has taken over two sides of the TD Building on the corner of Howe and Georgia. On the other corner we see the city’s patriotism, while we wait for the clock to count down the few remaining days until the festivities begin.
This rotating billboard on Seymour and Nelson, has all three sides showing games related sponsors.
Robson Square decked out with logos on the pillars, the glass and on the ice from the rink’s sponsor.
Entire buses have been covered! This one was spotted on the corner of Howe and Nelson.
This entire building is plastered with advertising for the official Games clothing, on the corner of Granville and Georgia.
Great big displays, including event mascots, in the hallways of Pacific Center.
With the Games fast approaching, and the more sponsorship ads we start to see, Vancouver2010 fever and fan excitement will surely spread like wildfire soon enough!
