[PHOTO] Seven photos of the underside of the Spadina Road bridge, and more

Passing underneath the Spadina Road bridge over the Nordheimer Ravine reveals, on the concrete underpinnings, surfaces dense with graffiti dating back perhaps two years. The ending of the trail to the southeast of this location, in Royston Park, is much more sedate and green in the foreground.

[PHOTO] Clear electric blue sky, near night

The sky last night as I exited Spadina station a bit before 9:30, at the last of twilight, was a gorgeous perfect electric blue.

[PHOTO] Ten photos of Queen Street West, Yonge west to Dufferin

Early Thursday afternoon, I took an extended walk west along ‘a href=Èhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Street_(Toronto)#Yonge_to_University”>Queen Street from Yonge towards Dufferin. Spring is here, but it is not here just yet; the grass is green but the trees have not yet sprouted new leaves. Can it really be only two weeks until the first cherry blossoms appear?

[PHOTO] Images from a walk on Queen Street West two Sundays ago

Two Sundays ago, I went on a minor photo spree along Queen Street West as I walked to the theatre to see Age of Ultron. It was the right time to do so, in the hour of so of golden light before sunset.

This handsome condo complex on the southwest corner of Spadina and Queen Street West shone in the sun.

There was something pathetic about this tree stump, last of a tree that was more of a steam than a solid trunk.

The sidewalk space in front of an entire storefront was filled with similarly precarious objects.

Facing south on John Street, the CN Tower continued to rise high.

At Adelaide and John, for that matter, the towers rose high.
