Scarecrow on the Drive

Here we are, back on Commercial Drive, Vancouver. This delightful scarecrow guarding pumpkin and a squash looks like it has come right out of a kid's storybook.

"Torch" eagle

Another eagle from the Eagles in the City project (Vancouver area), "Torch" was painted by Marty Collins.

I photographed it when it was on display at Cascades Casino in Langley, B.C. These eagles have since been auctioned, with the money collected going to Easter Seal Services to children with disabilities.

In progress

This Victoria, BC mural was in progress when I photographed it last summer. It's an interesting blend of woodland scene and faux facade.

The Overlanders Sculpture - Kamloops B.C.
