Everybody is just a stranger but
that’s the danger in going my own way
I guess it’s the price I have to pay
still “Everything happens for a reason”
is no reason not to ask myself
Not enough words, nor pictures can describe how incredible this concert was. It was everything I expect and much more. I feel sometimes like his lyrics speak for my heart, like I don’t need to say anything, just listen to his music and it is enough. Awesome start to my long-weekend. Leaving tomorrow morning to Montreal, it’s going to be great. Have a great weekend everyone!

This is Water #10 by Chinese artist Jun Ren. This 7 tonne stainless steel sculpture is suppose to represent liquid water as a drop or spill in motion. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture the very top of the structure, but I’ll have to go back again. Surrounding the sculpture is the beautiful water front facing the BCIT Aerospace Building and the Richmond Olympic Oval down stream. The Last picture is from an airplane flying overhead making its way towards YVR. If you want to watch a beautiful sunset..bring a date, you know…you should really come here and enjoy the view. The rest of the pictures are here.

So after failing at studying, I decided to take some pictures around Richmond. I’ve been meaning to go and check out Miss Mao after all the controversy it was recently causing about promoting communism among other things. But isn’t that what art is suppose to do? Challenge the way we think about things and stir up conversation/debate? The rest of the pictures are at the Miss Mao set on Flickr.

So….for some reason or another, these heads suddenly appeared in front of Lansdowne. There was no information about them, but a lot of interested people. It reminded me of the power art has on a community as I saw over 20 people come walking by and asking questions about the sculpture. Who made them? What’s it made out of? Is this part of the Olympics? This event showed me the value of art in our community and its ability to get people talking and questioning.

Love this city. That’s my resolution, to love and appreciate one of the greatest cities in the world, Vancouver. I hate this place so much sometimes, but it’s my home, it’s where I’ve been the last 19 years and I love it despite everything else. This is the concrete jungle of the Pacific Northwest.
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
