Modern Blue

Photobucket

This is a common theme these days on apartment blocks around New Westminster and, indeed, the whole Lower Mainland. Some modernizing is happening, as you can see with this gorgeous blue paint and the new white window frames. However, nothing can hide the dated brick at the bottom. That stuff only works with what was probably the original brown-ish pebbled siding (the now blue part) and the old-style wood or steel window frames. Regardless, an improvement! Now if only we could banish ugly architecture for good, and stick with what will stand the test of time.
