Skwachàys Lodge and Residence at 31 West Pender Street in Vancouver houses a fair trade gallery, boutique hotel and an urban Aboriginal artist residence. Owned and operated by the Vancouver Native Housing Society (VNHS), the facility provides 24 shelter rate apartments for Aboriginal people at risk of homelessness, and two social enterprises that support the Society’s mission and financial sustainability. …The process started when Dave selected six Aboriginal artists to each create a vision and theme for three hotel suites.

When you see something new and cool does your monkey brain want to grab it? Or your inner jackdaw, or whatever it is? Mine does. But I think I must have at least two inner jackdaws, judging by my reactions recently, and they’re polar opposites in their desires.
I don’t have a camera that takes square photos, but I do like to see what happens when you take a section of an image and put it into a square format.
