This is kind of an odd picture, but I liked the idea of this crow sitting on this sculpture at Van Dusen. I fiddled with this a bit to make the crow stand out and the rest blurry. Not the best photo - but not the worst either

Anchors Aweigh

A hidden gem in a courtyard on Granville Island. I love how the water looks like it is dancing!

Carl Linnaeus

Carl Linnaeus is the Father of Taxonomy. Whatever the heck that is! Actually I know, but don't feel like explaining it here. Anyway - he was Swedish and kind of cute, so I had to take his picture. Donna snapped one of me kissing him on the cheek, but I haven't seen it yet.

Korean Pavillion

This is the roof of the Korean Pavillion at Van Dusen Gardens. I had not seen it on my previous visit, but the colours certainly are beautiful!

Is there a pot of gold?

This fountain is in the middle of the small lake at Van Dusen. I missed it last time I was there, but with Donna's expert direction, we found it this time. We just happened to catch the sun in the right spot to make a small little rainbow.

This waterfall is in Van Dusen Gardens, which we went to visit today. It was a beautiful day and very cool and relaxing sitting near the waterfall listening to the water splashing on the rocks.


I had to get pretty up close and personal to get this shot of the duck. Fortunately I didn't fall in the pond, which could have been a possibility!

Reaching Out

I have always liked these wooden sculptures at the airport, but have never taken a picture of them.

This is another photo from Spiritland at Van Dusen Gardens. I really loved the feel of peace and solitude of this particular display. The bamboo leaves rustling in the wind and the soft tinkle of a wind chime....

I Got My Eye On You

I Got My Eye On You

Believe it or not - this photo was taken at the airport. It caught my eye as I was standing waiting for my friend to arrive and I just had to snap it.

Pink Rose

Here I am again with my taking pictures of flowers obsession! I would have liked the center to be a little clearer but I think I need a tripod to hold the camera a little more still.

This display with the bathtub and the beautiful serene surroundings really appealed to me.

This is one of the beautiful teak wood statues in the Spiritland display at Van Dusen Gardens.

Lack of posts

I haven't had time to search around for some photos to post the last couple of days, but I am going to the botanical garden today, so hopefully I will get some good flower shots to display.

I took this at the rec center the other day. It isn't as sharp as I would have liked. I think I need to get a tripod!

I wonder what this guy is thinking about. He looks very deep in thought as though he has a tough decision to make.

Red Caddy

I spotted this beautiful old red Caddy on the way to dinner last night. Donna wasn't impressed when I stopped to snap a photo. I wanted to show the whole car, but the background was too busy and didn't do it justice.

Testosterone filled the air surrounding this Harley! I didn't see the owner anywhere, but I would have liked to catch a glimpse of the driver!
