I haven't been able to spend much time taking photos lately. Here are some from a recent day out in Vancouver feeling like I just needed to get out and look at things a little differently. My heart gravitates towards stark, aged industrial buildings. I love rust and patina on blue metal. I love mismatching patches of paint used to cover graffiti. All these decrepit features intrigue me and are beautiful in their own lonely sort of way. Serious, industrial buildings are often painted in really vivid colours and this has always caught my eye. It's such a strange circumstance that a factory style building, likely containing stark machinery and workers, get's painted some outrageous form of teal. I have only two theories for this mysterious scenario: 1) there has been some major sale on an outrageous paint colour and they need to paint a vast expanse of space so they're trying to get supplies cheap, or 2) the owner secretly has some outrageous, flamboyant said to themselves that is being expressed only through the painting of the building. I prefer theory 2 - everyone can appreciate a closet artist ;)
The second set of photos are from a recent weekend in Whistler. Tyler surprised me with an overnight getaway as a birthday gift and we stopped on the way up to visit Porteau Cove. The campsites in this area are amazing. We will definitely be taking our little boler trailer up there this summer for some R&R.
