For the first six weeks of the coronavirus I mostly stayed inside, mainly because every time I did go out there were so many people, especially hundreds of joggers, and I couldn’t seem to get away from them.
Things opened up a bit last week and the number of people out and about thinned out a lot as they spread out to the beaches and other newly opened areas.
I managed to go for a number of walks, mostly in residential zones where I found a number of things to take photos of, especially liking things that were man-made combined with nature.
Old gate crusted with lichen and rust. Open gate with buttercups, ivy and yellow poppies in profusion.An unfriendly gate overgrown in ivy.Abandoned circuit board on a Vancouver curb. People are allowed to plant curbs, traffic circles and any out-of-the-way places in the city. Some of the people even put out seating for passerbys. An old bench that has seen better days amidst an overgrown planting.Another dilapidated chair in a buttercup infested garden. I saw this across the street and wasn’t sure what I was looking at. It turned out to be a plastic mesh with fake leaves to cover up hedge pruning disaster. More of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Anything Manmade.
