Homeless in Vancouver: Stucco with a dash of squirrel
Today I photographed a squirrel climbing stucco—the result was underwhelming. It really was one of those “you had to be there” moments.
The squirrel literally ran up the side of a building covered in grey stucco encrusted with little bits of white quartz and black obsidian—what’s called “salt and pepper dash stucco”.
The first time I say a squirrel run up the side of a three-storey stucco-clad apartment building, I was flabbergasted. I still don’t understand how they can do it but they can and they make it look effortless.
Whenever I’ve seen them do it, they’re scared witless so it couldn’t require a lot of thought and well, they are squirrels.
