the neighbourhood

November 25, 2015

after two and a half years of construction noise

we have an impressive new high school

it replaces the first school opened on this site in 1929

P1070936with a special totem pole to celebrate the occasion

named Sno’uytth – Coast Salish for “spreading good energy”

carved by Butch and Clarence Dick

P1070938the tree behind the pole, planted in 1862, has its own plaque

when driving home yesterday I couldn’t resist stopping to enjoy the sunset

P1070940it wasn’t until I got home that I realized there was something on the lens!!

directly behind me the moon was rising

P1070941while I was taking the picture

a lady walking her dog stopped and asked if I was snapping the moon or the naked swimmer?

yes, he was “in the buff” on a very cold, clear November evening

yikes!

spinning cotton in the eveningsP1070943trying to ignore the chaos

    At least you didn’t catch an unwanted exposure! Hah. Hope your lens was easy to clean – not like mine that has sand and lint stuck between the layers where it won’t come out.

    The sunset/moonrise combo is great (even with the naked guy!) I’m glad you have your spinning as a calm spot in the storm!
