the day after


 

Familiar to many of you, my favourite muse, Kitsilano Beach after yesterday’s snow.

welcome to the family


After many years of faithful service my Pentax Kr, my fourth Pentax since 1970, finally gave up the ghost. You will have seen many of its creations on the changing palette since I first started blogging in 2013.

I’m happy to report that a used Pentax K5 in perfect condition joined the family on the weekend and already feels very much at home. Clearly the beginning of another beautiful friendship as you can see from this morning’s walk.

Time to say “thank you” to my old friend and “welcome to the family” to my new one.

couture beyond


 

This is the final weekend of a stunning exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery:
Guo Pei: Couture Beyond.

The exhibit was first presented by the Savannah College of Art and Design in September 2017 and we have been fortunate enough to have had it here in Vancouver since last October. Here are a few photos I took on my iPhone yesterday that hardly do justice to the glorious artistic vision of Guo Pei, China’s preeminent couturière. You can read more about the exhibition here at the Vancouver Art Gallery web site.
 

 

 

ticket to ride

 

 

 

The Bright Nights Christmas Train ride in Stanley Park, Vancouver is always one of the highlights of the Xmas season and all tickets sold go to support the BC Burn Fund, which partners every year with the Vancouver Park Board to present a truly magical event as you can see.
 

 

Special thanks to the BC Professional Fire Fighters and all the volunteer groups who spend countless hours making it all possible.
