Now you see it, now you don't - hiding in plain sight

Now you see it, now you don't - hiding in plain sight. 

Green utility box in Vancouver BC

I love how this "box" was camouflaged into the surroundings so it wouldn't have to look ugly. 

Taken in Vancouver BC, which is a big city that knows how to put its best face forward.  Every season brings out beautiful colors and textures, and the changing landscape is wonderful to behold.  People in this city really love to garden and they take pride in the surroundings.  Maybe we could all learn something from a simple act such as this.

Thanks for reading my Maui blog...

I haven't seen anything like it, and I love it!  Sure beats looking at a sterile grey metal thing.

Now that IS a great argument to support graphic artists. See Mom & Pop, goin' ta collage ta learn how to paint ain't a waste o'yer hard earned bucks after all! Used to the 'sterile gray metal things' as Myrl Jeffcoat mentions...and here I thought they were conveniently located outhouses!

Hi Georgie, hope all is well in your world. We both love Vancouver BC - it's truly a beautiful city. As evidenced by your photo, they take their ascetics seriously. :)

What fun - and how clever to disguise an ugly trash can by making it so pretty! Vancouver is a wonderful place to visit!
