This photo was a direct result of the 420 celebration in Downtown Vancouver.
I hopped a SkyTrain to Granville Street station but something was wrong when I emerged from the depths of metro.
It was 4:23 PM on April 20, 2011, and 20 thousand people breathed out a communal plume of smoke together.
As I made my way closer to the clouds of pot I realized this was no place for me. The streets were packed with everybody and anybody slightly interested in pot-culture. And, here I was, just wanting to take some pictures of the day’s events.
I decided to leave the art gallery after getting stuck in the crowd for nearly 15 minutes.
I walked along Burrard Street away from the epicentre of 420. Somewhere around Comox and Burrard I saw this guy trying to untangle the Canadian Flag from the American flag.
With the elections coming up and our current government the way it is, I thought this photograph had a nice little symbolism to it.
