A Tour Of Toronto In Photos


A Tour Of Toronto In Photos

These past few months I got to spend some time with two of the most down-to-earth, talented photographer friends. We decided to venture outside: eating dinner around backyard patio furniture, fleeing the city for weekends at cottages, frolicking in Autumnal leaves of inner-city parks and what we discovered was beauty all around.

We live to the beat of the city drum: Stop. Go. Never yield. Walk fast. If not, drive. We sometimes travel to the destination as our fixture and we go forth with blinders.

Sometimes, we look backwards. We are reminded of sweet grass and bushy trees that cover our shadows instead of the high-rise pillars. It stirs our awe of beauty and lets our feet touch ground.

But, if we removed the blinders, we can find beauty in destruction. We can find that field of earthly dreams in the decay of consumption.
