It’s a Small World (Especially Right Now)

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.mossy wall macro with blackberry vines Shaughnessy wall in Vancouver, CanadaScratched heart graffiti.Heart graffiti scratched into Shaughnessy wall in Vancouver, CanadaGhosts of ivy past.A ghost ivy on a Shaughnessy wall in Vancouver, CanadaMossy wall.
