The Cecil Hotel at the north side of the Granville Bridge is now closed to make way for a new building of condos. I wanted to get some shots of it before it is torn down. These were intended to be more of an impression of the building rather than an architectural record.
I love to wander the alleys of downtown Vancouver looking for interesting images in areas considered to be ugly. There are many back entrances to buildings and businesses that are repainted over and over to cover up graffiti and beautify the entrances. These repaints create amazing vignettes of colour and form. As well there are old signs, markings, messages, razor wire and more.
