Petit Tour de Force - Apple store/Pacific Centre, Coffee @ the Hundson's Bay... and the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics Touch


An installation with no name/title plaque-nothing (!!!) between Pacific Centre and The Four Season's Hotel(did not bother with another nearby interesting sculpture because of no name/title plaque-nothing!!!

Granville looking southwest...

Granville looking northeast-ish?

Dogs in stores - we are finally "civilized" (maybe?)

People were made to line up outside, on Seymour Street, to enter the store its Olympic shop - for "security reasons". Either The Bay had serious threats or, they are cashing in big time... They were actually limiting the number of shoppers in the olympic shop - while inconveniencing the rest of us!


While one could shoot a cannon anywhere else in the building... having us actually make an effort to enter the store - it is the most absurd situation, ever.

On the 6th floor, The Seymour Room, the same,
just a handful of us by the windows...




It is normally a quiet place, but, with all sorts of people milling around.
My "tour de force"... can't miss stepping into the Hudson's Bay ever since I arrived in Canada in 1969... Started in Calgary and continued the "tradition" in Vancouver.

Y me parece "preciosa" -no creo que sea la palabra más adecuada...- la foto que tienes puesta en tu título.
Mil besos, Angel
