LOOKING AT THE BRIGHT SIDE (052/365 DAYS, 3.0)


I went out for a smoke this morning, 
and looking around, 
I could only feel the dreariness of the day, 
feeling no motivation whatsoever to take any pictures so, 
I took out my cellphone to take this one above. 
A lousy cellphone pic that I toyed around with 
to enhance the only color I could see, 
a nightmare made up of detour signage and orange cones. 
I'm not the only one living in this nightmare... 
But this had a positive effect on me, 
as I decided that over lunch, 
I should look for colorful things.


I ended up in some empty back alley. 
Not quite my style to wander in such places... 
but it held a nice surprise for me 
as I found out that part of one of the university's pavilion has this colorful  shape to it. 
I felt happy at this discovery.



Facing that, 
a few pigeons were freezing their butt off just above this red wall. 
More colors!! 
:D~


Gotta feel sorry for those poor things...


Even these smokestacks had a certain appeal in my opinion. 
Is that the photographer's common sense talking, 
or a hint of despair?!? 
:D~


I then proceeded to slip in between large garbage containers and a wall 
only to discover a graffiti there in this small enclosure. 
The only problem was that this was the place where every wind gusts came to die, 
with a vengeance!!! 
You can even see it in the picture, 
me thinks...


Yes people, 
I have stepped into unfamiliar territories, 
for your benefit and my pleasure. 
The sacrifices one has to make...
:)~


In a more respectable situation, 
I took this picture of the Dandurand Building 
as I intend to eventually speak about it on Sepia Saturday
So I am gathering various material about it, 
and having recent photos will help. 
I already had a full length picture of the building, 
but it does help to have some interesting details worth focusing on.
I noticed their windows were dirty 
and I thought I'd clean them up with Photoshop, 
but then decided against it. 
I don't do windows, 
not even virtually!!!

 

The day is now over and to make it all perfect, 
I got myself a bag of Doritos
I know, I know!! 
Empty calories... 
But you hand me a bag of these 
and I am in sheer heaven!!! 
For a day that looked bleak, 
it turned out better than expected. 
How was YOUR day?!?

    1. I think you already had a pint too many,
      as these are not garbage containers but,
      stoppers, to keep trucks from bumping into this wall
      when backing up while making deliveries...
      Cheers!!
      :D~
