Finding a way in: The day(s) I got into Opsal Steel.

I miss the Opsal Steel building. I enjoyed just knowing it was there. I used to make special trips just walk around it, till one day one of the boards was off the back. So, like any good photographer, I completely freaked out and ran home to get my tripod, since I already had my camera. The first time in was a panicked state of speed shooting, since I didn’t know if I would ever be able to return. Thankfully, that board stayed unfastened for quite some time and I was able to return multiple days, each time being more calm and certain about the images I wanted to create. I was also able to return with my Rolleiflex TLR which was produced in the early 1950’s. It seemed appropriate and I’m very happy with the results.


Other images from my excursions into the Opsal Steel building in Vancouver, BC can be seen here.

    I miss this building too! Though I don’t drive by that corner anymore I am aware on some level that this historic structure doesn’t exist anymore.
