I’ve just moved to Vancouver for eight months, so I am still a tourist in this city. Walking around today, you can’t help but notice that there is a lot of street art. Yes, there is graffiti, but in amongst that there are some real gems; art that I can appreciate.
My photographic walk concentrated on the Gastown area of Vancouver. There is a lot of architecture, but I will save that for another day. Today was about colour and I found it aplenty in the street art; hidden in alleyways; in plain sight in a car park; up high on the side of an office building.
