Gastown, Vancouver

Quelle domage! I was away from my studio perch when the roof was deliberately and finally dropped after 27 years. Before the Olympics, I posted a picture of the roofless dome taken in 2007 after a rip in the fabric caused collapse due to a heavy, wet snowfall. I regret not being present while this one slipped away. This is the last image I took, after hundreds, of a favourite architectural canvas and, although there are no special light effects on it's surface, the gull flying overhead suitably finalizes this aspect of my landscape project. And now, GM (needs a new name) Place, marks the spot in Yaletown.
