Tina’s challenge this week gives me the opportunity to say goodbye to Vancouver, which is always a bitter-sweet event. We are always delighted to reunite with our son, but at the same time, we’re sad that we must part again. So, as we pack our backs and say farewell, I’ll share a few photographs of iconic places and events which characterize our time in British Columbia.
On this visit, I made sure to photograph The Digital Orca, an iconic landmark along Vancouver’s waterfront. In 2009, Douglas Coupland pixelated an orca whale in three-dimensions. This sculpture continues to fascinate tourists and locals. If you look closely, you can see the cubes of black, white and gray which are the building blocks of his work.
Summer was exceptionally hot and dry, but we still found some beautiful flowers at Queen Elizabeth Park.
This is a small sample of the gorgeous autumn colors in this part of the country.
The light displays in Morton Park are beautifully detailed and intricately designed. We spotted this one at the end of one of our walks just after sunset.
This iconic view from English Bay Park is one of our favorites. This image was captured a few days ago after a rare day of sunshine. The paths were crowded with joggers, couples talking, parents with strollers, runners, and people like me who were just enjoying a beautiful evening.
I hope you enjoyed my last “roll of film” before we leave Canada in a few days. Please come back to my site next Saturday at noon when it’s my turn to host LAPC #179. I’ll be writing to you from the United States by then.
A special thanks to Tina who is leading the “Your Choice” challenge this week. Please stop by her Travels and Trifles site to enjoy her beautiful holiday memories. We hope you join us this week! I’m already wondering about what themes you’ll choose. I’m looking forward to finding out. Thanks also go to Amy who started the holiday season with her Celebrating theme last week. I enjoyed your wonderfully varied and creative interpretations of how we celebrate all around the world.
In closing, have a safe and inspiring week.
