Fisherman’s Wharf, Vancouver in the Sunday sunshine today.
Fisherman’s Wharf Vancouver never fails to surprise and inspire.
Today was no exception.
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.

This week’s finial photo challenge of the year asks us…
“To celebrate the end of the year, share the most meaningful photo you’ve taken in 2017.”
Without a doubt this was one of my favourite and most meaningful photos of the year,
which I posted for International Women’s Day last March.
Take a look back at the UN Women’s web site and use this opportunity to read again their statement “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030”.
The Three Graces cheekily contemplate two magnificent frescoes in the Libreria Piccolomini of Siena Cathedral. On the left Enea Silvio, bishop of Siena, presents Eleonora d’Aragona to Emperor Federico III and on the right Enea receives the cardinal’s hat
The photo was taken with an iPhone 6S during our recent visit to Siena in October.
You can find more images of both the library and of Siena by visiting Italy Day Five.
