Construction Colours!

Construction Colours!

This construction site certainly brightened up the surroundings. Remember when drab plywood and black vapor barrier were the classic colors seen on building sites everywhere? I saw this colorful project underway beneath a gray sky in the Eastlake neighborhood. Happy Friday everyone!

I just love when colors are used in otherwise non-colorful places. This reminds me of the drawings I used to do when I was little; houses/buildings that were bright shades, so bright that if they were to be found in real life, they'd make your eyes pop wide open. I like your photo, just like my drawings of long ago.

I guess each color has a specific use but it sure makes the place look tacky.

Condos, I assume? I did a few days of the construction here, and most of the sites are not anywhere near as colorful as this!

I've noticed the colorful paper more and more on larger building. It does brighten up a drap landscape. MB

Colorful indeed!

"Louis" has noticed the same colorful ("Louis" didn't say 'pretty', he said 'colorful') contruction sites around the Bay Area.

It looks like the wind has done a number on this building's building paper....

I have noticed how colorful building under construction are. A real rainbow of construction material shows up. Nice job on this pic. Your photos are consistently good.
