We’ve had a lot of snow and and a long freeze to keep it on the ground. All those shades of white and grey pulled the camera out of my pocket as much as any summer day’s flowers, this year.

Our magnolia, much-featured here in every shade of pink and violet, cannot be anything but beautiful, any time of year.

I had a 20th-floor meeting downtown, with a view of two construction sites. There’s a lot of geometry in this one.

The second site was at first less interesting; I was looking down at the top of the big crane, then saw the two guys walking around on it, fixing something or other, hundreds of feet up on snowy steel at -6°C. Look close and you’ll see them. I’m not complaining about my job today, I think.

Does that mean that we (in Montreal) are going to have a Vancouver winter?

Those pictures look very much like our winter! ;-)
