Photographer's Note

This is called an inukshuk, a traditional stone sculpture used by Inuit people (also known as Eskimos). They build these in the vast northern lands to help mark the way, especially in winter when everything is covered by snow. This one is located in Vancouver, and is more for decoration. I believe it was originally on display during a world's fair in 1986, and then after the fair it was moved to it's present location near the beach. This also happens to be the basis for the official symbol of the 2010 Winter Olympics, which will be held in Vancouver.
