Sunset over Evan’s Lake, near Squamish, B.C. A couple of friends tied the knot on the shore of this tranquil lake in July. The valley was in the midst of a heat wave, bringing the lake to bathwater temperatures. Made for some perfect midnight skinny dipping.

Locked tombs in Cairo's City of the Dead.

Locked tombs in Cairo’s City of the Dead keep the giant cemetery’s living residents out of the valuable real estate. The Egyptian capital’s massive housing shortage means every available space, including the city’s sprawling burial grounds, are being populated by residents desperate for a place to sleep.

Longboarders race down a mountain road in West Vancouver in 2008. Skateboarding on certain public streets (including this one) has since been banned in some B.C. communities after a number of skater/vehicle accidents but, the popularity of the sport and the ubiquity of skateboards as a means of transportation has kept a debate alive and staved off a full out prohibition.
