An old man contemplates progress (right) while a young man in a suit hurries back to work (left). With Credit Suisse and BArclays offices stacked on top of luxury malls and shiny storefronts, Canary Wharf is a place for movers and shakers. Everyone wears a suit, and everyone is in a hurry.
This is the apex of capitalism.
I wonder what the old man is thinking.
And if the kid on the left could ever understand.
Many skiers ride this lift triumphantly back to the front side after a long day in Vail’s Blue Sky Basin. Chair 36 has a unique character among lifts at Vail, which tend to be shiny and new.
The Sun Down Bowl, Sun Up Bowl and China Bowl are now open on the back side of Vail Mountain.
The early-season openings mean that three of Vail’s seven Legendary Back Bowls are now open.
Game Creek Bowl is open; Blue Sky Basin is also open as of 12/4/2014. Lots of terrain opening up very early; this 2014 ski season is looking good!
Photo taken on the ridge between Game Creek Bowl and Sun Down Bowl. Snow was a little icy today (first day of December, 12/1/2014) due to sunny conditions and a lack of new snow. More snow is expected in Vail on Wednesday (update: did not materialize), although as my father always says: you can’t predict the weather.
