A Reminder of Days Gone By

So here we are, July 5th, and the weather here in Vancouver is once again back to the rain and cool temperatures. So since I haven’t been getting out a whole lot with the camera this year, and since I just paid my yearly fees, which means my third year of Vancouver Visions is just about to begin (in September to be precise), I thought I would take a look back at some of the earlier pictures that have graced these pages, and at the same time, I might convince myself that we really do get nice weather here at least once in a while. So if some of the following shots look familiar, it’s because they’ve all appeared here at least once before. Oooh, Spooky!

Church steeple at night.
A solitary streetlight adds a highlight to the silhouette of the church steeple in the early evening hours.
The Gumhead Sculpture
This is a self-portrait sculpture by Douglas Coupland called “Gumhead”. It is constructed from steel, milled foam, resin, and yep, you guessed it, gum. And just in case you’re not sure what kind of gum I’m talking about, Mr. Coupland has also invited all passers-by and viewers, to add their own chewing gum to his sculpture, thus obliterating his original work, and creating something new in the process. The sign in front of the statue suggests you wash your hands after adding your chewing gum to the work in progress. I second the motion.
Just one of many fractal designs I came up with when I took an interest in Fractal Art several years ago.
