I remember studying Canada

when I was at school…Grade 6, I think.

When referring to Canadian salmon

our teacher told us that…

Canadians eat what they can and can what they can’t’.

This quote had me confused for some time

as I was used to referring to

a tin of soup, fish, whatever.

I don’t think these fish are salmon,

however they are, or were photographed

in the lobby of the

Parkside Hotel in Victoria,

British Columbia.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Odyssey

~~~~~

odyssey

a long wandering and eventful journey

I am inclined to suggest that any journey

originating in Australia and visiting

the northern hemisphere

could be described as an ‘Odyssey’.

Last year’s travel to Canada took us about

16 hours flying time to reach Vancouver Island

to the start of our Canadian/Alaskan adventure.Falling snow on the Columbia Ice-field was

an event we had not counted on.

Our sled ride on the Mendenhall Glacier was wonderful.

Followed by the Red Carpet treatment

when boarding our

Rocky Mountaineer

Gold Leaf Carriage.

 

 

 

Our Final day, not included in the tour,

was a visit to Wiseman,

a very small township

inside the Arctic Circle.

Signs which are

self explanatory,

I hope.

I don’t remember taking this shot

and have never before, or since,

laid eyes on this bus.

However, according to my filing system

it was taken in Melbourne.

This was about as far as a DSLR camera could go. 

Pocket size cameras and phones

were okay, I believe.

A Tea Room on the

Western Front Battlefields

of France.

.

Self explanatory? 

All day we were hearing about Whistler

and all day I was thinking

‘…I’ve heard that name before…’   

However, only made the connection upon arrival. 

Fun fact.

  We were told that recent summer sports had

overtaken, economically, winter sports

on/at Whistler.

Tuesday-PC-Wk170-Sculpture

~~~~~~

While these two terms are related to each other, they do not mean exactly the same.
statue is a carved or cast figure of a person or animal.
Sculpture is a piece of art that is made by carving or molding clay, stone, metal, etc.
A sculpture that contains a human or animal figure can be termed as a statue.

 

I miss-defined the statue/sculpture definition,

so this is take two.

Vienna, Austria.

Avignon, France

 

St Paul de Vence,

France

Taupo,

New Zealand

Statue or sculpture.

Grouse Mountain,

Vancouver, BC.

FOWChallenge-Aquarium

~~~~~

~~~~~

aquarium

a transparent tank of water in which live fish and other water creatures and plants are kept.
a building containing tanks of live fish of different species.

My images are not exactly aquarium images…

 …but they all show fish…

 

…in water.

Looking through a glass bottom boat on

the Great Barrier Reef,

near Cairns in Queensland

is probably the closest I have to an aquarium shot.
