The challenge on Day 4 was to photograph the element of line. As I walked into work on a beautiful sunny morning, I noticed the line of barrel staves leaning against the palisade.
The palisade itself is such a symbolic line in the course of Fort Langley and BC’s history: it is a line of logs standing to mark a line, by definition, to communicate property between past cultures. Today, it stands and is maintained because of the significance of British Columbia’s proclamation which occurred within its enclosure in 1858.
Here is the railing of the Big House, where the event happened, as well as a bird’s eye view (at least from the office) of the palisade. Both of them create beautiful lines in stark winter sunshine.
