A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/forbidden/
Well, it’s not exactly putting up a parking lot, but in one of the areas of town where I walk on my lunch hours (Uplands in Oak Bay), I saw about 8 lots, just on this one walk alone yesterday, in various stages of constructions.
From the cute little house that will not be there by the end of the month
Through empty lots where houses once were a short time ago
Through to new monstrosities being finished
It makes me a bit sad to see the charming old, sometimes original, houses disappear for no reason other than someone wants something new, and usually really, really big.
I did laugh, however, at this sign on campus
Smallest “construction zone” I saw on my whole walk
