Gables on a godless roof

Faux architecture
London, ON
May 2009
Thematic. Threesies. Here.
Living as I do in suburbia, it's hard to find architecture that's been around for more than a couple of decades, if that long. Most everything around here is new enough that it was built without the kind of customized craftsmanship and care that typified older buildings. No one's ever going to say that 1990s bungalow has great bones.

Still, you can find snippets or flashes of interesting stuff if you look carefully enough. And some of the faux features in, on and around one of the local malls are just decent enough to trick the eye into thinking they're worth a second look.

Sure, it's a big trick. But one I'm happy to fall victim to, because otherwise I'd be staring at emptiness. And that would be even worse.
