Sea Odyssey – Day 1

The giants are here! In Stanley Park a little giant girl and her dog Xolo could be found sleeping today. They awoke to a huge crowd of people and set off looking for their uncle, also a giant. It was simply amazing. When the girl woke up it was like a magic switch had been turned on and I spent the entire day, nearly 12 hours, continuously photographing pure magic. Xolo the dog is fantastic. He’s just like a real dog. His ears move, tail wags and likes to pee on bollards. The girl can really dance but I seriously loved the lilliputian’s moving the giant Uncle’s feet. The jump off the platform and swing on a rope to lift it. It’s just pure fun and magic. I’m going to be really sad on Sunday when its all over because I know this will never happen again here. Get into town and see this.
