Homeless in Vancouver: I say it’s an ostrich, others say a whale
Sometimes a blogger can hit the wall—run out of new and interesting topics to post.
This might be one of those times.
There’s this paint splash on a low concrete wall I ride past most every night. Many times I’ve noted in passing that it suggests a large flightless bird to me, such as an emu or an ostrich. Last night I finally stopped and took a photograph.
Splatters, like beauty, are in the eye of the beholder
I can’t help but see an ostrich or an emu but none of the handful of other people I showed the photo to agreed with me. They saw a whale, an octopus (an octopus?), a jellyfish, an Imperial Walker from Star Wars, and—“some paint on a wall?”
Hey kids! Beware of searching for “whale with big tail” or “whale tail”. The results tend more toward bodacious than cetaceous.
