Default Colors -- Yellow

Here are a couple shots of a building on Granville Island in Vancouer, British Columbia. This might be familiar to Bynx.

Granville island is primarily an artists colony with virtually all artforms represented from sculpture to painting to metal work, etc. It is a fascinating place to visit. There are also some good restaurants and a marketplace worth visiting.

This is one of the restaurants:





Enjoy,

Cal

these are nice. like the lines and angles on the close crop image, and the yellow car in front of the building makes the 2nd image.

Yes, the lines and shadows in #1 enhance the shot a great deal.

If I lived anywhere near that place I just couldnt help myself. It would be my first actual graffiti of sorts. But that roof looks easy enough to get up on with a few cans of spray paint.
