I prefer to travel around the world but right now I’m going for walks around the city, and only to places I can get to without taking transit.
The other day I went for a walk up to Shaughnessy, the original neighbourhood of wealthy Vancouverites.
It is built on a rise so the people living there could look down on the lower classes. This high concrete containment wall was built at the edge of Shaughnessy to help shore up the land, and keep the riffraff like me out.Scratched heart graffiti.Ghosts of ivy past.Mossy wall.
Get in closer! Up really close the moss looks like a mass of tiny green stars. This section they tried to cover the wall with some sort of coating which is now cracking and peeling off. Still, up really close, it is beautiful. More of the Lens Artists Photo Challenge: It’s a Small World.
