Out and about



I love it when I get the opportunity to spend a few hours wandering around a neighbourhood different than my own, especially when it's with a like-minded soul like my friend Nancy. We spent yesterday afternoon walking about an area in Toronto known as Leslieville, a neighbourhood that's been down on its heels in the past but is enjoying an obvious renaissance. Lots of photo opportunities too; I had captured over a hundred photos by the time we got back in the car to head home. Urban, floral, retro, textural, you name it. I'm really pleased with the day's productivity. Here's just a small sampling: above is a wall we walked by, as well as a doll inside an antique store.

I love that doll, but it looks frightenlingly real.

Dolls can definitely adopt quite dramatic personalities! This one is stunning!

I love the fact the person used blue to describe green, thats great. After reading your description of the neighborhood, I look at that doll as a sort of guardian watching out over the renaissance and liking what he sees.
