Bright Pearl

In the top right of the above photo you can see a large silver globe with a map of the continents etched on it. It floats on some rollers and water and can be rotated in any direction, a favorite activity of passing school children. This is located at one entrance to Centennial Square, where it touches on Chinatown at the corner of Fisgard and Government Streets. The plaque at its base notes that, "the Bright Pearl honours the many people who immigrated here from the Pearl River Valley in China."

That globe looks built in a very modern way. I liked the reflection caught in the water. Beautifully composed picture!
