The Sun The Sun

I’ve been carving 4 block prints that I’ll be entering into a show in Toronto. When they’re done, I’ll post them here. But, in the meantime, here’s a photo I took on December 28th while on the streetcar. There was an unusual occurrence–the sun came out after a generally very grey autumn and early winter! Happy New Year one and all.

And, the sun was out today as well….

Lace in the Sky

I often look up at the trees and sky as I walk in Toronto.  This beautiful spring, the first buds looked like lace to me.  I’ve loved watching the trees begin to flower, the changes visible just days apart. Here’s photos of the same trees taken on April 28, May 2, 5, 6 and 9.  I’ve posted them in that order.LaceLace2Lace3Lace4Lace5

By the Lake

I took this photo while walking in The Beach neighbourhood in Toronto that’s off Lake Ontario. This is from early December. The water, sky and trees do my heart good in all seasons.

The Past Few Weeks

It’s been a radiant fall in Toronto and is just past the peak now.  On an abnormally warm day (it’s going up to 19 degrees celsius) and before the leaves fall any further, here’s three photos from the past few weeks. The middle photo of the maple is on the University of Toronto campus–on Philosopher’s Walk. The last photo of the flaming oak against the blue sky is from Evergreen Brickworks.
