Box House, Bevan Avenue at Third Street, Sidney British Columbia

A great example of why it’s important to photograph a unique, even if insignificant on a larger scale, piece of architecture when you have the opportunity. This small square box of a house was bulldozed less than two weeks after I took this image. The house was very basic but unlike anything else on the street. I’m sure it’ll be replaced by a larger box, offering more residences on the same footprint which is good, but I doubt there will be anything unique about the new structure.

MK 5 Sabre Jet, Sidney British Columbia 2016

Always a head turner, catching sight of this old fighter jet for the first time can be a bit disconcerting when seen at the edge of your vision while passing down a local street.
