Vancouver Very Random

just some random pics around vancouver - mostly the "Kitsilano" neighbourhood - I got a little obsessed for a while with all the sign boards in front of pretty much every place we passed

enjoy











thought these kleenex covers were kinda funny













































this building is so ugly





















































this zombie mannequin was kinda weird
