[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.
