Laughing Guy, Last One First

Let’s start with the last one first. The metal of these whimsical statues lent itself to colored shadows when light was added. Red, greens, yellows and blues are mostly used buy in this image I really liked the pastel colors of magenta. Laughing Guy was the last image to be placed. While adding the last three images I kept telling myself, no not another one. Frustrated with the need to fill every bit of space, I emailed Rebecca, and ran ideas past her. Yeah that would work, maybe not that and I don’t know what that is. So this was the last and a great fit. Laughing Guy, Last one first.

The laughing guys were first installed in 2009. Tourist flow to mimic and take their pictures with what has quickly become one of Vancouver’s most recognizable statues. Located in Morton Park, right next to English Bay. Personally it’s stuff like this that completely keep me entertained. I don’t need fine dining or a night out but give me a park bench, fresh air and something fun like this, I’m good.
