Many renditions of this type of home is still found in well kept order in this area. It is dark in the underpass, so they have these lights to help us see. I thought the way the capture of the light mixing with the tree is interesting.

It’s a nostalgic mural of the Kingsway Royal York area, in an underpass.

This mural is not quite 3 years old, and already the rain run-off has left its marks.

The fact that it’s B & W highlights the effect of the sun from different positions in the underpass.

Dizzy ‘n Blue

It was sunny last Sunday. It’s been mostly all grey since, again.

It’s been the darkest winter + spring = ever!

It makes a blue and dizzy feeling.

Just trying to put a light hearted spin on it.
