I note that Liz Jones (Patches) is offering a MNH Canada Year of the Dragon souvenir sheet in our auction. I saw one at my stamp club meeting last Wednesday. I don't collect Canada (except for a few WWI & WWII issues, and war commemorative issues) but I'll have to admit that the Year of the Dragon S/S is gorgeous:

Liz's image doesn't do it justice — no image could. The gold looks like real gold, glistening metallic gold. It's amazing.

Silence in the face of adversity is the father of complicity and collusion, the first cousins of conspiracy..

re: Year of the Dragon

The eyes of the Dragon seem to suggest they are examining its next meal.

re: Year of the Dragon

I really like all of the Lunar New Year souvenir sheets that Canada has issued over the years, but these long narrow sheets are excellent for use as postage on mail going outside of North America.

re: Year of the Dragon

and note some of our Canadian auction listers, like Liz and Lee, use these and other stamps with great artistry on their outgoing lots.

re: Year of the Dragon

Here's a photo I took of a Japanese dragon with which I had a close encounter some time in 1964-65, which was the year of the wood dragon (although he was made of concrete).

re: Year of the Dragon

Thank you, Liz. I've enjoyed photography since I was about 16 years old, and when I retired from teaching in 1966, I opened my own photography studio in Prince George, BC. I did portraits, weddings, commercial photography, product photography, landscapes, and even copied old photos for individuals and businesses. I never made a lot of money, but I managed to pay for everything, including building a nice studio, and always turned over a bit of cash to the family for groceries.

If anyone would like a hi-res image of the dragon photo, let me know. It would make a collateral item to add to a page or an exhibit of dragon stamps. I would want a photo credit, of course.

Bob
