Gastown is impossibly busy Friday night, and nearly depopulated Saturday morning before breakfast. Store lights were still lit, the sun was up but the sky was overcast, making colours intense. Some tourists were up and about, and a few energetic street people were hustling, poking, or simply reading.

Today is Mother's 92nd birthday. We fondly remember how beautiful her carefully designed garden was on LeRoy Avenue, with all kinds of flowers suitable for that climate. I therefore wish to honour her on this special day with a few photos of Janice's flowers. During our last phone call, Mom mused about how nice it would be if she could but sit on a chair in Janice's garden, having her name all the plants, moving the chair from place to place.
Happy Birthday, Mom!

The Pacific Spirit Park (just across the street) has spots of intense light and areas which are more obscure. The eye can discern far more gradations of intensity of light than can a digital sensor, and I am unwilling to return to the labours required for colour film. I am starting to explore points of light as they pierce the forest's shadows.
