A nice treat and surprise as you’re walking up Water Street in Kelowna in an alley next to The Keg Restaurant is this quick chalk drawing. What looks like an attempt at turning a possibly violent night into a statement.

Spotted! The Best Things…

I don’t particularly enjoy bumper stickers myself, I think most cars can do without them but that’s a personal aesthetic choice for me, it has nothing to do with the messages or motivations of bumper stickers. That being said, I came across this bumper sticker during a backyard Holiday barbecue this winter. Maybe I gave this sticker a littler more attention then others because the car wasn’t idling in front of me, but seeing things in a different light or from another perspective is always nice. Whatever the reason, I enjoyed this sticker enough to snap a picture to keep as a positive reminder to start of the new year.

Another old photo circa the 1950s of the Kelowna Aquatic Club Pool. This would have been the place you could have found me back in the day (between my breaks as a Don Draper type, of course) enjoying the sun and the water. I found this in the Pusher Mitchell law building off Ellis.

It’s kinda like Big Brother… only, with birds.

This was a nice surprise, a friend and I were enjoying our partially thought-out ‘walking in back alleys’ experiences we’ve been enjoying lately and spotting some great finds, like this vision of Kelowna where someone was clearly channeling van Gogh. I think there should be certain alleys behind buildings where we have more art, anyone interested in working on a plan to present to the city a system of districts set aside where a little color could be added?

Spotted! View from Knox Mountain

While not necessarily a poster or image, this was quite a sight. A friend and I hiked to the top of Knox (well, okay, we drove most of the way…) and caught a rare glimpse of the Okanagan. You can basically see from Vernon to Peachland. Awesome. I nabbed a few shots on my iPhone and stitched it together in Photoshop. Click it for a better view!

Spotted! The Warehouse

This was spotted last week as I was walking down the street. Sad to see, I remember seeing the Weakerthans at the Warehouse six or seven years ago, when I first started going out to shows in Kelowna.
