Weekly Photo Challenge: Twisted

with 4 comments

Vancouver House is a condominium at the end of Granville Bridge that makes the most of a restricted site by a design that is twisted. This photo was taken a month ago, and the construction is now nearer completion.


By a curious coincidence Price Tags – another Vancouver based blog has a more recent picture this morning.  Which saves me having to go out a try for a better shot. I can’t say that this design fills me with affection, but it is unusual.

Somewhere in my photostream is a picture of a very twisted tree trunk, but Flickr’s search engine – as usual – seems incapable of finding it. Maybe that will be one of the benefits of the takeover by SmugMug.


WordPress has announced that the Daily Post and all its challenges will cease issuing new challenges on May 31. I am leaving Vancouver for a cruise tomorrow – and I doubt that I will have a connection to the internet for a couple of weeks. So this is the last post I will make with this heading. It was fun while it lasted. Thanks to those who followed me, as a result of these WPC posts. And thanks to all those who “liked” my posts.

  1. I have a character in one of my books who says, “Only the most interesting people wear bow ties.”
    Is he right?

  2. I started wearing a bow tie relatively recently. I was not about to buy – or rent – full evening wear for the formal dinners on board cruise ships. I did have some decent suits and shirts, but most of the ties I own are hopelessly out of date – and not well cared for. I thought a (ready made) bow tie plus existing dark suit close enough without having to get a tux/dj. I doubt that makes me any more or less interesting.

    I also read somewhere (probably something very out of date) that wearing a made up bow tie was the mark of a bounder. I judgement I, of course, reject.

  4. Whatever the reason, nice looking photo of you and the bow tie. I’m sure you had fun at the parties.
