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.
