About a year ago I met Lisa at my local coffee shop. She was the barista serving me my delicious latte – we got to talking and realized we were both creative people who tend not to act on their impulses. The “procrastinator club” was born – a club where nothing gets done. ever. Until last weekend…. Lisa and I decided to be procrastinators no more and drag our cameras out of dormancy to explore the industrial sector of Hamilton, Ontario. We met at the cafe on a rainy afternoon, when I though that the day was going to be lost, but the rain let up and we headed down to explore the desolate weekend industrial area. It was desolate alright, but there was not a lot of opportunity to pull our car over and explore as there were signs posted everywhere “not trespassing”. We drove by this parking lot full of colourful plastic pieces – it was like a candy store, a giant candy store! the gate was unlocked and there was a man working inside the building – I asked if he would mind if we wandered around to take pictures, he was cool with it so off we went! Turns out it was a fibreglass manufacturing company that makes waterside for all over the world! They were working on slides for Disneyland, China and many other theme parks- how cool is that?!
