SCULPTORS | George Norris :: A Photographic Tribute
I studied in the building overlooking Mother and Child. I worked as a letter carrier in Postal Station D. I attended a few Pink Floyd laser light shows at the Planetarium back in the day, and I swim at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre. Seemed the least I could do to express my appreciation to the late, great, George Norris, was take a few pictures of these four works that have been a part of my life for so long.
Yesterday was a wonderfully clear and blue sky day in Vancouver. I buzzed around the city with my camera … Canadian geese and rainbows added a mystical element to the results.
Thanks, again, Mr. Norris!
