Alexanderplatz, Berlin, Germany

I’ve been watching a lot of videos on YouTube lately of Berlin’s U-Bahn … and they unsurprisingly brought back memories of my two trips to Germany’s capital city. This is Alexanderplatz, the commercial and transit hub in what was once East Berlin, as seen in September 2015.

Portland, Oregon

When art and public works come together: This elaborate and illustrative manhole cover can be found on the multiuser pathway on the west side of the Willamette River in downtown Portland, Oregon. It’s street art in the purest sense of the term. Snapped this picture on a visit there last month.

Portland, Oregon

It turns out there is a series of signs such as this one, put up in parts of Portland to promote a comic strip based on the life of (you guessed it) sea gulls. I guess I’ll have to find the rest of them next time I’m visiting!

Wishing everyone a happy new year! This photo of a smiling snowman is an oldie snapped several years ago along 10 St. N.W. in Calgary.

This photo was snapped at an event in Calgary many months ago but it contains the perfect sentiment for the day.
