Kitsilano

Nothing like a little magic with which to start the week. This morning’s sunrise illuminated my favourite willow tree on Kitsilano Beach that has featured in so many posts on thechangingpalette over the past few years. Definitely another one worthy of sharing.

Happy Monday

the second of the year

Kitsilano in the snow #2

Inspired by a magical morning on Kitsilano Beach after the snowfall before Xmas, which I posted about in backdrop to a life: part 2 and which was also the inspiration for the first of the year.

The Gift of the Four Treasures has once again weaved its magic spell with the superpower that resides in its brushes and ink.

Looks like the beginning of a new series for a new year.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry II

The Centennial Totem Pole, Vanier Park, Kitsilano, Vancouver

Walking in this afternoon’s sunshine and with symmetry on my mind, the Centennial Pole made a perfect subject. The pole was dedicated in 1958 as a memorial to British Columbia’s Centennial year and was carved by Mungo Martin of the Kwakiutl nation. A second pole was presented to Her Majesty the Queen and resides in Windsor Great Park.

For another view of the pole visit A Pole with a View from last summer.
