Adventures in an Abandoned Car Park

Abandoned Car Park (35)Back in September me and Zara went to the abandoned car park that is on Av du Parc and Avenue Van Horne here in Montreal so she could try out spray painting for the first time instead of her usual painting. We found out as soon as we arrived that the place wasn’t so abandoned when we stumbled into a cleaning crew that was sweeping the place out as it’s to be demolished soon (or might have already). We smiled at them and continued to one of the upper floors and they didn’t bug us at all which was great (we did have an encounter later on with a homeless guy who was wandering around the lower floors muttering to himself). Here is the start of our afternoon…

She wasn’t happy with the results although I thought her piece looked amazing and reminded me very much of her other paintings. Understand first attempts aren’t really for the anyone else except the artist.

Zara jumping over the puddle could have been a great shot but it was too dark to caputre the perfect in between freeze motion moment.

We also were very amused by this pillar and took many photos of use poising in front of it.
