Enough with trying to capture flying, flaring, and diving birds. Let’s go with something completely different. But what?
I know! A bridge.
Here’s my first decent night shot.
Lions Gate Bridge has always struck me as a beautiful bridge, and not just because it launches from Prospect Point. But for many years, it seemed to be an anachronism — beauty is not what I would associate with most bridges built during the last half of the 20th Century. But perhaps esthetics are coming back in. The Alex Fraser Bridge in Vancouver, the new Port Mann bridge further up the TransCanada, use cables in ways that suggest the architect actually considered what kind of arrangement could look beautiful (as contrasted with, say, the Ironworkers Bridge to North Vancouver, or the Confederation Bridge to PEI).
Jim – Yes, cable-stayed bridges can be amazingly beautiful, as well as awe-inspiring. I have the Ironworkers bridge on my list to visit – maybe I’ll move it down that list a bit! 🙂
Barbara – :D, indeed!

If politics is to be worth anything, it has to be about getting things done, not because activists despise their country, but because they love it and believe that it can be better. - John Lloyd

I invite you to help me make a difference by buying my latest book. All my royalties are going to Food Banks Canada to help with the problem of food insecurity, made even worse by this pandemic.

"In sum, Canada has the same problem as many of our children: high self-esteem without high levels of achievement. We feel very good about ourselves — but for no apparent reason." Bad headline IMO - not a partisan issue. But an issue.
Article: "I don’t imagine sensible Canadians will accept drowning in red ink. In another year, governments that push efficiency and spending controls will have a far more receptive audience."
Watch for the feds to call an election before that point.
