Being a photo of a nice modern construction site on Vancouver’s Main Street.

Construction site on Main Street

When I say “nice” and “modern” above, that’s because it stands out. I’ve written before about Main Street’s lovable funky grubbiness standing in the inevitable path of gentrification. As the old and mostly never-were-very-good buildings wear down and out, they are being replaced ad-hoc. I don’t know what this one’s going to be, but the quality of the concrete-and-steel building process is remarkable.

I have cranked the colour saturation a little but only a little, to bring back the rather striking blue tinge of whatever finish is on the steel beams.
