a red volkswagen beetle amidst the apartment towers in vancouver's west end neighborhood

Red Volkswagen and Apartment Towers

Posted on | Shot on at 17:00:00

This is kind of a mundane scene but the juxtaposition of the red beetle, the white buildings and the highlights on their northeast sides from the winter sun caught my eye. It’s also a pretty unfamiliar scene for me, both in Bozeman and Portland, the cluster of apartment buildings like that, so tall and so close together is an unusual scene.

  • funny your comment about the apartment line up being rare in Bozeman and Portland – when this came up right away i knew it was Vancouver and the West End. the West End has such a distinctive feel to it. even without the red beetle i would like this – love the way the street drops off on the right side.
