Fisherman’s Wharf, Vancouver in the Sunday sunshine today.
In May 2017 I posted a number of images of Vancouver for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting. Rather than repurposing all the images for this week’s Photo Challenge: Place in the World from Erica, I invite you to visit Vancouver Reflections to see my city enjoying the same brilliant sunshine as it is today.
Photinia leaves and sky reflected in the water on our path with its pachysandra border.
Dedicated to the people of North Kensington grieving for the tragic loss and suffering of their families and friends.
Reflecting the city.
…and this presentation by Destination British Columbia entitled The Wild Within.
Have you booked your tickets yet? 🙂
Today has been a day of reflection in which I saw a painting at every sparkling moment:
La Roque Saint-Christophe
St Léon sur Vézère
Our last stop at the Cave of Lascaux deserves a post of its own when I return home.
It was definitely the highlight of the day.
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all.
Joni Mitchell 1967
I took this photo with my iPhone a few weeks ago looking up at the Wall Centre here in Vancouver. The words of Joni Mitchell’s song, Both Sides Now from her album Clouds, instantly came to my mind and a moment of warm reverie came over me as I looked up at the clouds and remembered hearing her voice for the first time in 1969. I was driving my old yellow Triumph TR2 down the Old Kent Road in London, and as she started singing on the car radio I had to pull over to listen to the rest of the song, a magical moment frozen in time and one which has remained with me ever since.Ben’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Half and Half has given me the perfect opportunity to share the photo and to listen to the unforgettable voice of Joni Mitchell singing one of her greatest songs once again. Thanks Ben
One of the great memories and pleasures of visiting Siena is sitting in the afternoon sunshine on the warm stone of the Piazza del Campo enjoying the view of the magnificent Palazzo Pubblico reflected here in my wife’s sunglasses.
