I haven't been out taking photos much lately because I've been waiting for spring to come along and breath colour back into our city. As a little challenge to myself I wanted to get out yesterday and try to find something interesting about this season to photograph.
My good friend Sarah is always up for an adventure, so we packed our hot coffee and headed out to Steveston (a marina based village about half an hour outside of Vancouver). I had been out there recently on errands and noticed how beautiful the yellow grass fields looked against the grey sky so I hoped we might find something that would inspire us. We did, in the form of a gathering of shacks and decrepit buildings in a slough along the Steveston dyke. We later learned that the area is actually called 'Finn Slough' and dates back to the 1890's. Some of the buildings have people living in them while others are vacant and falling apart. It may have been the weather but it felt really eery. Witnessing old boats left high and dry and empty houses crumbling away to nothing. If you ever find yourself out in Steveston riding your bike or going for fish and chips I highly suggest checking this place out.
