Summer Solstice Giclee - Front Lobby
Robert Williams Summer Solstice - 5:21 am, June 21, 2015
from Cattle Point Star Park - Sunrise June 21 over Chatham and Discovery Islands
Julian Hancock suggested we get a second canvas - one for the front lobby too. We have produced a giclee of the Summer Solstice taken at the same time and date from Cattle Point courtesy of Robert Williams. You can see from the cloud formation it was taken at the exact time as Dr. Ross's image now hung in the 3rd floor lobby - i.e. at 05:21 am on June 21, 2015. This is no coincidence as we were taking photos of the 2015 Summer Solstice all along the Oak Bay Seafront.
The giclee (print on canvas) is hung where the old clock was in the front lobby.
Hope you like it and that everytime you leave or come home, it makes you feel good.

Last minute cheques or cash please drop in my letter box at #104. We are just 2 donations short after we made the front lobby giclee a little larger than planned.
By the way many thanks to digital photo expert Terry Zlot who has amazed us with his company's skills and capability. He is at "The Print Lab" on Bowker in Oak Bay.
Summer Solstice Giclee - Lower Lobby
Dr. Andrew Ross' Summer Solstice - 5:21 am, June 21, 2015
from Hampshire House 6th Floor Look-out - Sunrise June 21 over the Cascades
Thank you all the owners and residents of Hampshire House who contributed to a fund to have Dr. Ross's wonderful image, printed on canvas. I know that every time you enter the third floor lobby, or bring guests through, this will be a great talking point, and a wonderful reminder of why your guests should get up at sunrise and visit the lookout on the 6th floor.
Thank you everyone for your generosity and community support.
