Still going through my vacation photos, I suspect it will be a few days before they're all labeled and good ones chosen for this blog. Here's one shot in Vancouver. It's a lovely city, really, but not this building. Every time we passed it (it was about 2 blocks from my hotel, and next to the subway, so we passed it often), we all mentioned how ugly it was, how it looked like a bunker, etc. Really, this photo makes it look much nicer than it does in person. Interesting thing, Sears in Canada is a lot nicer than Sears in the US. This particular store was closing, and in the process of liquidating all their inventory. I bought six nice sweaters for $80. Maybe once it's closed, they'll tear it down and build something attractive.

I'm leaving on vacation in the morning, and will be away for a few days. I'll resume posting when I return home (hopefully with lots of new photos to show). Here are some shots I made while vacationing last year, in Toronto. These were all shot in the Allan Gardens Conservatory with a pinhole attachment on my digital camera.

This spiny thing (don't know what to call it) used to sit atop a sign advertising a supper club in Flint, MI. We used to drive by it occasionally when I was a kid, and I always liked it. I especially liked it at night, because it was lit up and rotated. Now, it's relocated to a run down old shopping mall in Flint, part of a collection of old signage. I see these pretty often in old photos, they must have been a common design motif at one time.
