Turned off.

Yes it is just a tap. But take a closer look. Does the style of the tap not give a sense of a former time? What do you think of the colours and patterns that time has created on the tap? And see how the colours blend nicely with the background of fallen leaves left on the ground. There are oranges, pinks, browns, reds, and greens. Just an example of everyday things that stop me, and make me take a longer look. It's becoming a thing I just can't turn off.

I stand out.

Lately my 'obsession' for texture has grown to a point that it takes me forever to walk a city block. Every post, pole, fence, paper or metal object causes me to stop and look at it from a different perspective. What seems like a disregarded or forgotten object can actually become a thing of interest, and perhaps beauty. This tattered poster almost escaped my eye as it was above my head. I took a few shots and of course noticed people looking at me wondering what I was taking photos of. In turn, I wonder where they are rushing off too. Don't they know the whole city is an Art Gallery, and they should slow down and take a look?

Looking Down..

You may find it difficult, but this shot is a mixture of real trees and reflections. I decided to walk to Greek town today which takes you over the Bloor Street Viaduct. This shot was taken half way across the viaduct and looking down into the Don River. I figured I have shown mostly urban photos, so it was time to show a nature one. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do...
