What a year we’re having. Here in Vancouver, we’ve been able to enjoy being outdoors throughout the pandemic, but there were times when it was surreal walking about our city.
Roads were often mostly free of vehicle traffic, and the majority of pedestrians made a point of detouring – off a sidewalk and on to the road – in order to avoid close proximity.
Many of the stores and businesses that boarded up their windows were soon decorated with murals. Images and messages ranged from whimsical – the block seen in the photo above featured some of my favourites – to expressing gratitude and inspiration.
Others encouraged safety …
Robson Street was home to some terrific murals. You’ll see some below, with more to follow!
