[PHOTO] Financial District under winter fog, from Church and Richmond

It was cold and wet yesterday, but not so cold that fog could not shroud the tips of the tallest towers in the Financial District. The northwest corner of Church and Richmond was a perfect vantage point for this scene.

[PHOTO] Splash of colour off Richmond Street, between Church and Jarvis

Looking south, my eye was naturally drawn to this spot of colour, in the murals in the background, amid the somewhat drab condo buildings on an overcast Sunday late afternoon.

[PHOTO] Graffiti for a queer future (#haikuforyouto)

I saw this graffiti in a Church Street establishment’s washroom stall and liked it enough to want to preserve it. Having options, choice, is grand.

[PHOTO] Paul Kane House among the condo towers

With plans for a mixed-use condo tower more than forty stories high on the northwest corner of Church and Wellesley, Paul Kane House will be completely surrounded by high-rise towers. This space, with its grassy lawn, will become that much more important, as an exception to the high-density downtown.

A meeting for Toronto's missing 2LGBTQA*, 1 August 2017

I saw this placard advertising a meeting, to be held tomorrow the 1st of August at 5:30 pm at the 519 Community Centre, discussing Toronto’s missing queer men on a building at Church and Wellesley. The community is paying attention to this alarming mystery.
