Photographer's Note

I'm proud to call this photo #600 from Canada.

This is a subject/photo I've been wanting to capture for years, literally, years. I finally got around to it in 2018.

This is a 17.5 Meter or 57 foot monument in East Vancouver, constructed in 2010 by artist Ken Lum, who also grew up in the East Vancouver area.

I don't expect this photo to get a lot of attention or TE points, but i'm posting it because if you lived here in Vancouver you'd understand. This has become such an Iconic Symbol of our City.

Even though this large East Van Cross has only been up since 2010, it's become so popular that its become common to see it on T-shirts, hats, in advertising, it really has become a logo of importance and pride for us locals.

At night it glows a bright white/blue and you can see that in the WS photos.

I'm sure in your local city, you have Iconic subjects that are similar, which all local photographers have in their own personal galleries. This is one for us Vancouverites. Hope you like it.
