Vancouver-Saskatoon connection

A few years ago I was glancing at my photos of our walk through Stanley Park and noticed the shape of Siwash rock. (Click on title for more info.) It reminded me of the shape of the grain elevators in Saskatchewan. So, with the help of Photoshop I overlaid the Saskatoon C (Sea?) elevator on the Rock. I know that there's at least a 20 foot difference in actual height--the grain elevator being 80 feet high and Siwash rock almost 60. But it seemed to make for an interesting comparison, however far-fetched it may seem to the viewer.
That's the fun of playing with photos--imagining what else could be. Painters can include/exclude what they like in their final product. Why not photographers?
