Totem Poles

While visiting Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, I took this photos of the totem poles.

According to the park’s website: “Totem poles are unique to the north west coast of BC and lower Alaska. They were carved from western red cedar and each carving tells of a real or mythical event. They were not idols nor were the worshipped. Each carving on each pole has a meaning.”

These architectural structures are above the pedestrian walkway on Stephen Avenue in Calgary.

According to a Downtown Calgary website, “Stephen Avenue Walk is a beautiful outdoor pedestrian walkway in the heart of downtown Calgary from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, 7 days per week. It’s steeped in heritage, and lined with fabulous restaurants and retail shops.”

Curvature

What can I say? I love the curvature of the earth. It is fascinating the way you can see it from so high up. Yes! The Earth is round. Here live the humans who have built a concrete jungle. Amidst the greenery, there is water but on this river, live so many people working and travelling up and down its path. There is a history and present story to be told in this photo.

It is a view of Paris and the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower.

Vimy Ridge 3

Vimy Ridge 3rev

Vimy Ridge is a famous place and monument in France. It is dedicated to Canadians as they were able to take ground that was kept by the Germans in World War I. It was thought to be impenetrable and unbeatable and yet the Canadians did it. It was part of the Battle of Arras in the Pas-de-Calais Region of France. This monument is 30 meters high and was designed by Walter Seymour Allward. It was unveiled in 1936 by King Edward the VIII. It was restored in 2007. Did you know that when you are on those grounds, you are back in Canada? I love this series of photos that I took because to me, it means a great deal and I honour those soldiers who fought and lost their lives for our freedoms.
