Vantages

A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme day for October is Change.

This is a view of the entrance hall at the Museum of History.


Taken from above, here is the Grand Hall.


Totem poles and facades typical of the Pacific Coast first nations are found here.

  19. The BRD has been busy for several months making totems out of clay that she then bakes in a kiln and glazes. But I think the tallest is only about 4 to 5 feet. I'm sending her a link to this post.
