The sculpture is part of the Vancouver Biennale and is entitled "Frozen Water" by Chinese artist Jun Ren.

    Ein toller Blick.
    Ja man sollte manchmal den Blick öffnen und die gewohnten Dinge mit den Augen eines fremden sehen.

    Nice hometown, great surroundings.

    That is a truly impressive and large sculpture, I love it! So different from other sculptures and really eye catching. On the way into Plymouth (the nearest big city from here) there is a fantastic sculpture of a big silver bird with a branch in its mouth and I so want to take a picture of it but it is on a strip of grass in the middle of a four lane highway and can't stop the car next to it! I must park the car near it and get a photo soon, it's beautiful. I like the mountain backdrop in the picture, very imposing, especially when they are snow capped in the winter.

    Da hast Deinem Besuch aber einen wirklich tollen Blick auf die Stadt gezeigt! Erstaunlich, wie schön grün das Gras zu dieser Zeit noch war. Mag Deinen Bildschnitt sehr...

    another great view of your city, adele – so green looking still! it's amazing how colorful and cheerful november starts out – yellow leaves, lush green grass –, before taking away all colors and leaving us with dull gray ; ))… hugs, sabine. p.s.: the sculpture makes me of silvester and the (german?) tradition of "bleigießen" ; ))!

    Another beautiful Vancouver cityscape.
    Great to see how nature and buildings are going nicely hand in hand.
    I would have called the sculpture rather 'Corkscrew' in stead of 'Frozen water', but of course we must respect the artist's choice.

  • Lucy Trachsel 11/25/2010 9:11

    I'm really beginning to like your city! It must be somehow cozy being nestled in the crook of the mountains.
    A hug
  • Werner R. Albert 11/25/2010 9:06

    Nice view to your home town with the mountains in the distance.
    Good compo, well done.
