“The screech and mechanical uproar of the big city turns the citified head, fills citified ears – as the song of birds, wind in the trees, animal cries, or as the voices and songs of his love ones once filled his heart. He is sidewalk happy.” Frank Lloyd Wright
Our camera class was encouraged by our teacher to join a photography club to share photos and experiences with people with the same interest. The club that I joined tries to go out once a month on field trips. Yesterday, was my first field trip and we went into the big city of Toronto where we were to meet at Union Station and then take a walking trip to the Distillery District. It was one of the coldest days we have had so far and I bundled up with extra mitts and socks just in case in my camera bag. My mosaic today is just a capsule of the sights we found along the way.
This particular view of BCE Place has been in many photographs of Toronto. It is an amazing expanse of glass down a long indoor walk through. The different provincial flags of Canada can be seen flying in the corridors of Union Station. We went to St. Lawrence market, a really busy place to be on a Saturday where there is all kinds of imaginable feasts for the eyes and for the stomachs. If I was not carrying a tripod and a backpack of lenses I would have purchased something. In the Distillery District, a historical group of buildings that have been converted into trendy boutiques was a flower shop. It was a warm place to get out of the cold but it was source of happiness for my gardening starved soul. Lovely roses were arranged in containers. I wanted to bring everything home with me. I hope you enjoyed the peek of our day in the city.
A big thanks as always goes to our host of Mosaic Monday, Mary. Have a great week everyone. Valerie
