I now christen thee "Plaza of 88 Sandwich Boards".

Goodness, how anyone could miss an enormous Safeway store is beyond me.

Broadcast Break

Oops, I seem to have run out of photos. Will be back next week with more fun from New Westminster.

Until then, here's a movie trailer that shows the top deck of the Front Street Parkade with the SkyTrain bridge in the background at 1:50 and 2:16.

Same great New Westminster, now with snow.

This boat gets better every time I photograph it!

Uh Oh!


The snow is making us lose our heads in New Westminster!

2 of 4


I wanted the shot of the snow-capped mountains glowing pink in the sunset, but couldn't nab a decent one on the train. So, I settled for this one.

Missed Opportunity #2


Adjacent to the New Westminster SkyTrain Station - or should I say UNDER the SkyTrain tracks, is the concourse for the other portion of the mall shown in yesterday's post.
Again, I doubt that this will become a gathering place for people. The day I was there it was dark and had a wind-tunnel effect going on.

It will be interesting to see how this space develops as more businesses move in and final details are completed.

Missed Opportunity #1


The closer it gets to completion, the more I dislike Plaza 88. Monolithic malls are no way to create community and encourage people to gather along a city street. This part of Columbia sees pretty much no foot traffic and I feat it won't in the future. Missed opportunity by the city and developer to create something positive at this corner.

Theme Day - Photo of the Year 2011

City Daily Photo Theme Day is for the Photo of the Year 2011. As New Westminster Daily Photo often leaves New Westminster, I have decided that in choosing the photo of the year I would limit myself to a photograph actually taken within the city limits.

This brings me back to Glenbrook Ravine Park and this beautiful little garden, a bit of manicured beauty amongst all the wilderness.
