Railway Ave.



The Eastside Culture Crawl along Railway Avenue. The studios were clearly marked with sandwich boards and yellow balloons. 

The door is an artistic effort inspired by all the real talent I was exposed to on the weekend.

Below. I had the best time browsing the galleries, talking to artists, and trying to take photographs. I took a few pictures in this gallery but mostly it's blurred heads or arms or entire bodies. And the lighting is what it is. I have to say most people don't seem to care if they are in the shot which made me feel very comfortable. Generally when I look up I find someone is waiting to pass by until I've finished. 

This is the only person who seemed a tad miffed by my picture taking. Let's hope she doesn't find out she is in my blog.

I suspect the woman on the couch is an installation, "Woman on Couch, Miffed." Nicely captured!

My word verification was "outin." Since that was almost as bad as one I got on the Willits Daily Photo the other day ("urnize")I refused to type it. Now Google/blogger has given me "codgilde" which seems a little fishy, but enough dallying.

Love green door. How nice to have a real live gallery to crawl around. Me the photographer, hime the artist and no where to show.

It looks like you have a very vibrant arts community there. (The culture crawl seems very well attended.) I like to look at the people in the shots looking at the art. My favorite is the woman on the couch giving you a stern look. That's a classic!

I love Benjamin's take on that woman!

This is great, Wayne. I'd love to prowl around the Vancouver art scene.

I like the focus on the people rather than the pictures. It works really well.
