I took this weeks ago and liked the geometry, but the picture was still a little on the boring side. So I abandoned photointegrity and jammed the PhotoShop controls all the way over. Which, among other things, covers up the collateral damage from the War on Drugs.

Tall slender crane on Hastings Street, Vancouver

This part of Hastings Street is infested with junkies and other walking wounded. A guy stopping in the middle of the street to take pictures of cranes is hardly noticeable. I wrote an essay about this place and the drugs and the consequences back in 2003, and this picture reminded me of it, and I think it’s still material.
