A Danforth Photowalk

On August 18th of this year I took a photowalk along Danforth Avenue. I started at Broadview Ave. and finished at Greenwood Ave., at which point I crossed the street and returned to Broadview, snapping all the way.

Here’s a few shots from that day:

Colours

I like this shot. There’s something interesting about the colours, shades and textures of the dresses in the picture.

I took this shot at the Cabbagetown Festival this past September.

Yorkville Mini-Photo Walk

It was a rainy, wet, cold and generally miserable day yesterday. During my usual Saturday errand-running I took a few shots with my phone of the journey home via Yorkville and Avenue Road:

I was *horrified* to see these in the window of Structube on Avenue Road. Please tell me crappy plastic flowers with cheap pots on flimsy tripod stands are *NOT* making a comeback! I had enough of those in the ’70s, thanks. Sooooooo tacky…

I saw these just outside the Galerie de Bellefeuille at 87 Avenue Road. Interesting…

… And, I saw these little guys in the window of Galerie de Bellefeuille. Very, very cute.

I passed the Gardiner Museum near Queen’s Park as the sun was going down…

Before getting on the subway at the Museum stop I grabbed this image. I really love what the TTC has done with this subway platform. It’s incredibly innovative and brilliant, quite unlike anything one would expect from the TTC…

Outside Queen’s Park subway station. Not to exploit the homeless here, but I thought this guy’s sign was brilliant. I admire chutzpah in the face of adversity.

Lights At Pearson

Earlier this year I headed to the UK for a photo tour of Cornwall (which was amazing, but that’s another story for another time). I had a lot of time to kill prior to my flight’s departure at Toronto’s Pearson International, so I walked around the terminal a bit. I saw these cool lights which caught my eye due to their dramatic shapes:
