Down for walks along West Beach in White Rock especially in the winter when there are no crowds. A place to enjoy the outdoors in peace. Mount Baker looming in the background.
It wouldn’t be a tour guide without a photo of the pier at White Rock.
A while ago I spent time taking a bunch of photos of neon signs which usually left me in the photo. Most of them I processed to remove me and heighten the colors of the neon. So here you can tell everything is reflected by the background signs. Does that mean I’m also in reverse mode?
Yet another horn blasting, whistle wailing BNSF train rumbling its passage along the beachfront. A bane in the life of thousands of White Rockians who constantly whine about the noise as freights and Amtrak trundle along at all hours of the day. Should have checked out the neighbourhood before moving. 🙂
Sometimes it’s more interesting to see what is left behind after the H2O has gone.
A seating place finished with very shiny travertine tile and pretty blue handles outside a local bank. The reflection caught my eye as the light hit it just at the right angle as I passed by one day. Then when I uploaded the pic to my PC, I decided it was even better turned upside down.
No! It’s not a plug for another coffee house moving into the area – I’m losing count already – but I really like their advertising truck and that red sure fits in with this weeks Sunday Stills. Who knew one day even a cheap cup of java would set you back a fiver?
Everywhere I go there seem to be more and more seagulls despite reports of precipitous seabird population declines. Around White Rock these days, there are colonies of clamorous gulls up before the dawn and they are stilling vociferously screeching even after dark. Pretty sure this bunch at Tofino were members of the complaint committee.
Without the other signs adorning this store on East Beach in White Rock, you might be unable to guess the service it provides from the front door. Seems to me it would have made an excellent image for an medieval, apothecary shop specializing in bloodletting.
