Evolve


I have been eying this cool lantern stencil with the word evolve for awhile now and thought I had better capture it before it gets painted over as most of the tags on this wall have been in the past. This is the wall and doorway to one of at least 5 trendy coffeeshop/cafes within a couple of blocks from me (not counting the Canadian icon of coffee, "Tim Horton's" which is also in the 'hood) which really indicates the evolution in the coffee market here. Even MacDonalds serves espresso now!

It's a very cool lantern stencil!
Like the way you compose this shot with your shadow. ;-)

I like the composition of this photo too. Well done.

Yeah! What's with the fancy coffees at McDonalds? :))

You are actually part of the shot! It looks like you're slipping down the wall, away from the lantern... great stuff.

Painting a wall black is just asking for someone to write on it! Nice composition.

Lindy MacDuff said...

I agree, as others have said - nice composition. I also like that you captured reflections in the window, as well as included your shadow in the image.

What a great corner! Even that Lavazza sign is artistic.

Thanks for your well wishes.

would the shadow be you taking the photo?

Lesley said...

I can't quite figure out what the is suppose to be on the Lavazza sign. The lantern is really nice , though.

Love, Love, Love that stencil - got a kick out of your shadow :-). Glad you caught it when you did, they do tend to get painted over a tad too quickly.

I'm not usually a fan of graffiti, but I support the sentiment here.

I've written about coffee shops in the Pacific Northwest, but now should add that on our roaddtrip we have been patronizing McDonald's often for a morning latte. We can almost always find one just when it's time for a "pit stop."

I like the lantern also, wonder what the evolve sign means. Perhaps something will evolve from this stencil.

Interesting find!

nice capture!

Lavazza is a very popular coffee in Australia. I love the lantern stencil, there is some good graffiti!

Love it

Very cool shot Red, love the inclusion of your shadow. The competition between coffee shops must be horrendous, you just have to get the right vibes I guess!

Dianne said...

love your shadow
the sign is great, I hope they leave it

Great photo! I'd be in trouble with so many coffee shops within walking distance. I do luv my coffee.

Interesting piece of street art. Isn't it amazing how coffee shops can be found everywhere?

This could well be a Melbourne Alleyway and café. The similarities between our two countries struck me whenever I have visited Canada.

VioletSky said...

your shadows looks almost like you are scratching your head... wondering about evolve into what exactly?

Carraol said...

Great picture, love light and composition, those stencils are in most cases, forms of street art!
