Fishing

These giant fishing bobs are among my favourite art installations in the city. They were designed by Douglas Coupland and installed in Canoe Landing Park when it opened in 2010 and they seemed to have handled the weather and have avoided vandalism since. In the background you can again see some of the cranes that are being used to construct more condo towers downtown!

Super shot! I love this and it reminds me of many good times spent watching for that bobber to suddenly disappear under the water.

Love your angle on this one Pat..enjoyed Lowell's comment :) How curious, and nice, that the vandals have left it alone!

I love this too! The photography options are endless.
I'm amazed at the construction going on. Things are just beginning to pick up again here.

Those are just cool. What a wonderful concept, the colors have lasted nicely, and like you said they appear to be free from vandalism. I also just love the shadows they cast.
