After seeing my photos of rust and decay my friend wanted me to take her on a tour of decrepit Vancouver.
Because my walks took me everywhere I have opted instead for a Google satellite map for a self-guided tour of the lovely crusty dumpster and an old club that have seen better days…Or perhaps their best days are yet to come, especially in terms of how photogenic they are at the moment. This shot was taken in January 2021. This, of scraped paint on one side, was taken that same day. By September of 2021 a slightly different cropping of that same scrape looked like this, although the brighter colour may have had to do with the fall light. January 2021. By September 2021 the orange of the rust had bled through the cracked paint. And again the colour is brighter.I also picked up on this weathered painted sign for a now-defunct nightclub.There is also this abstract of some old cracked glue dots that held up some sort of sign on this door. To me they look to me like beach pebbles.Finally some diptychs that I created from the January shots of this same rusty dumpster combined with various trees around the city. The light on one side of the dumpster was very blue, and matched this lichen-covered tree in deep shadow.More of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Seen Better Days.
