Dried Floral Display on Robson Street for Pride 2020

Robson Street has been killing it with their celebration displays. This year for Pride, various dried florals and greens were arranged around a massive circular display. There were several different textures from the feathery coloured pampas grass to the ruffles of the carnations and little pops of softness from the bunny tails.

I had fully intended on photographing this beauty and posing with it because I live for anything floral, but due to previous displays being vandalized, the Robson Street team made the decision to move the display inside Chapters Robson for safe keeping overnight. Imagine my horror when I arrived to find it locked away indoors. Why do people have to be terrible and wreck beautiful pieces of work. You ruin it for all of us! The piece was going to be moved back outdoors in the morning, but I had work the next morning, so I needed to settle for pictures through the window. Needless to say, I was annoyed because I was really excited to see this piece in person and photograph it! 

Funny thing, this is not the first time I have been too late for one of Robson Street's displays. I want to say two years ago, I showed up too late, so by the time I got there, the display had been dismantled and discarded in the trash bin. Not one to give up, I dug multi-coloured streamers out from the street trash and draped it over my body as if I were wearing a super-expensive couture frock. The pictures turned out brilliant and are probably some of my favourite to date as a blogger! 

This time around, I was not so lucky. Could you imagine stumbling across a public trash can to find it stuffed to the brim with multi-coloured florals. This stuff is expensive! I would have carted thing away. In fact, I sort of regret not taking home all those rainbow streamers from two years ago. Would have made for a fantastic prop in pictures. 

So enjoy the pictures I did take through the window.
