Lines & Spaces

9 November 2020 – Another looping walk down to my end of False Creek, west to the Cambie St. bridge, up and across, back east via Olympic Village plaza, and home.

Hadn’t planned any theme, but this industrial corner off Scotia & East 2nd seems to focus my eye in a particular way.

Lines & spaces!

In this case, with rust.

But later, with water …

with traffic lights and a seagull …

with a floating log …

with on-ramps for the Cambie St. bridge …

with a whole mad frenzy of tubular geometry …

and, most wonderfully of all …

with dog leashes.

It’s an outdoor doggie obedience class in the Olympic Village plaza.

31 October 2020 (still) – Well, the day is not only about white-faced ghouls and black-faced teddy bears.

It’s also about ducks obvious to the symbolism, who just want to paddle the creek that runs through Hinge Park …

and equally oblivious woofers in the dog park opposite, who just want someone to finally throw the ball …

and banjo/ukelele/etc strummers who just want to entertain the ducks & the dogs & the rest of us, but yes, probably do know it is Hallowe’en.

Unless they are just addicted to silly hats.
