Photo Friday: Vancouver 2010

These brilliant Chinese lanterns competed against Olympic mascots, trinket booths, singers, food vendors, ticket seekers and ticket scalpers, wandering performers and everything else going on at Vancouver 2010’s Plaza of Nations.

But the crimson beacons held their own, as they swayed in front of the twilight-touched mountains surrounding the city.

The photo demonstrates why I love this city so much:¬†Vancouver’s rich cultural diversity and all-seasons natural playground. I’m thankful I’m only a three-hour drive away.

This is my first Photo Friday. Thanks for all that you do, Debbie at DeliciousBaby.
