The moon and other night objects

I was out completing my rings tonight when I turned around on Sherbrooke Street and saw a fat full moon hanging low in the sky, just as the sun was going down. I went back to the condo, grabbed my camera…and found the battery was dead. But I had a backup battery and it worked. Yay for planning.

Here are three shots, of the full moon, the upper floors of the new hospital building next door, and the mega-crane that has been installed for the pending construction of the next hospital building, along with other nearby objects.

As the decade known as the year 2020 starts to draw to a close, here’s some Christmas decorations from the neighborhood.

On the way to Burnaby Lake, I took this shot of some flowering trees. Pretty!

And a bonus shot of a sign on an electrical box in Lower Hume Park, near the intersection of East Columbia Street. I have no idea what the bird thing is, other than a bird. Thing. It looks like something Picasso might have sketched. It also seems to be suggesting that if you have a key, you still shouldn’t open this. No!

I need to rename “Daily Photos” because I’m often posting photos days after taking them. Maybe I’ll just use a photo tag or something.

Anyway, this photo of the Quay to Quay ferry on the Fraser River was taken on March 7, 2020.

EDIT: I have renamed Daily Photos to the clever Photography.

I have been lazy about posting shots to my blog because Instagram makes it so easy. Maybe I should look for an Instagram-to-WordPress plugin.

In the meantime, this shot was actually taken on Feb. 20th. Sunrise at Sapperton Station. The blue lights in the sky are likely just glitches on the camera lens…or the start of a UFO invasion.
