Photographer's Note

Thought i'd upload something a bit different today.

This is the Marine Building in downtown Vancouver. One of the very few Art Deco architectures we have here. What you're looking at is the main entrance doorway, or should i say, just above the double doors. The doors are 2 wooden turnstiles, and they themselves are very attractive.

I wanted to get a close up view of the designs and patterns. Funny how you can walk past a building dozens, hundreds of times and not realize the beauty it can hold if you don't look closely enough.

The Marine building was completed in 1930, at a cost of
$2.3 million, and its most recent property value is at $22 million.

The colors and designs are meant to evoke a sea/ocean theme. You can make out Sea Flora, Fauna, a large Vessel, all presented in Sea-Green colors mixed with Gold.

The building has been used in countless Major production Hollywood Movies and TV shows. If visiting Vancouver, don't miss out on 355 Burard Street.
