Photos Of Richmond

  1. 1. Richmond from the Air <ul><li>October 2006 </li></ul>
  2. 2. A few years ago I flew to Edmonton to visit my daughter and her family. I took photos every moment. The flights were particularly exciting to me. You have to be patient to get to the photos of Richmond. I wanted to put our little island in context with other parts of B.C. and even another province. I left the photos untouched so they are often blurry and crooked. I wanted them to be realistic. --- Carmela August 2008 Richmond from the Air, October 2006
