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.”

This is a Japanese Garden found near the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. There is balance here.

According to the Internet, “Kanso is the Japanese equivalent of feng shui which is all about harmonising yourself with your surrounding environment. It’s every hoarder’s nightmare as it means to get rid of clutter and eliminate the non-essential. … The Japanese aesthetic is part of a seven-part principle to achieve total zen.”

Back And Forth

These flowers are both looking forwards and backwards at the same time. I find it unusual that they are not all facing the same direction as they would towards the sunshine but they were indoors so I guess that is why they are growing towards different light sources.

I do not know what type of flowers they are but they are pretty. Perhaps, someone could enlighten me?

It was a end of fall day when we were visiting the Bloedel Conservatory. i liked the shape and textural architecture of the round dome building. I like ht paths leading up to it and also the water fountains.This building has been used in many TV shows and movies.

According to Vancouver, Parks and Recreation, “Bloedel Conservatory is a domed lush paradise located in Queen Elizabeth Park atop the City of Vancouver’s highest point. More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”

This is a yellow snake cocking its head off to the side. I believe it is a python but I am not entirely sure. It was taken at the Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove, British Columbia. I like the angle of his head on the rocks.
