Buddha In The Sun

I pass by this Buddhist centre fairly often and they always have a lovely display of flowers and this past week the September sun made the whole garden glow. It looks as if this may have been a large house in a previous use.

Don't Fall In

This is a pic from James Gardens taken a few weeks ago. The open grassy area in the middle is the section I showed you yesterday with the faux stonework set up for a shoot for a TV show. Anyone approaching the duck pond immediately attracts the attention of every duck in the area hoping to be fed and since this young guy had a few pieces of bread he was a real attraction for them. There are signs everywhere saying not to feed the animals but few people pay any heed to them!

A Park Reinvented

Last week I went to James Gardens and found that it had been taken over by a film crew who were intent on creating a 16th century atmosphere for the filming of "Reign" which is a fantasy, historical, romance TV show about Mary, Queen of Scots. All of the modern park benches had been removed from this area and this faux patio was set up by the gardens. All of the pieces were lightweight hollow foam and not the real thing. I'm sure we will be back to the 21st century next time I go by!

Autumn Light

There is something so warm about autumn light that gives such rich tones and long shadows. This fence looked okay all summer but this week it was glowing in the September sun.

Station 311

The little spotted lions from yesterday can be found by the bench outside this fire station near Yonge & St Clair Ave. The station was built in 1911 and was originally Toronto Fire Station 24 - you can see the old sign near the top of the building. It was designated a National Historic Site in 1990 and is still being used.

These guys were found just off Yonge St - the rare spotted lions. I will show you tomorrow where they were found and it will all make sense.

These bunnies by the artist Poser have been turning up around town for several years now often in unusual places. This guy that I found on Davenport Rd looks like he is in jail because I had to take the pic through a fence. There is something quite urban & edgy about these bunnies don't you think?
