Was running some errands in Gastown today and noticed this old sign on the alley side of a fairly run down building: "Abbott Mansions," it says. "Furnished Suites".
In the background is the W sign and the newish Woodwards tower. Gastown that was, Gastown that is.
Just now, the North Shore mountains in their snowy glory, and foreground Lost Lagoon partly frozen over. We're in the middle of a cold snap. It's lovely from the inside of my warm apartment in the West End.

Happy new year, friends!
Rather than make excuses for not having posted here in months and months, I thought I'd just jump in with a new picture, that I took today, walking along Davie Street in Yaletown. I happened to be looking down for some reason, and saw this in the concrete of the sidewalk. I've probably stepped on it dozens of times. Today I actually saw it, and took this quick snap.
May 2013 bring us all the opportunity to really see the things around us!
The lifeguard's parking spot looking forlorn in the small parking lot above the Inukshuk (an image of which figured prominently in the 2010 Olympics branding) at English Bay Beach. Let May come soon, and September linger. I'm ready for some warm weather.
