[PHOTO] Fifteen photos of my Tuesday commute from work (#toronto, #coronavirustoronto)

My commute from work began much earlier than I expected Tuesday evening, at 7. I got down from Eglinton station to Yonge and Wellesley to shop, just in time to catch the intense blues of the twilight sky on the Yonge corridor. The 94 Wellesley bus west to Ossington came in a timely manner, that done, putting me back in a neighbourhood made strange by the day.

[PHOTO] Four photos of Toronto as seen from the patio of the Yonge-Eglinton Centre

Toronto had several centimetres of spring snow fall today, a last gasp of winter at the start of spring. The city below did look nice from the rooftop patio of the Yonge-Eglinton Centre, the snow lightly covering the changing city beyond. Construction on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT line was visible below, as is the Eglinton station itself as it undergoes work, preparing to become an interchange station come the Crosstown’s completion in 2021.
