Photo Journey – August 6
08/11/2011 by Lord Awesome
Bit late on this, however my grand excuse is that I was caught up on work and stuff and thus unmotivated to really get around to posting and dealing with this – blaw, blaw, blaw.
Anyways, Saturday of past, I was doing the monk thing and skipping on paying transit fare in my adventures of meeting new peoples and realistically it was not that far (approx 60 minute walk). So I decided that since I was going to be walking such a grand distance, I would take advantage of the situation and get rolling with my graffiti documentary plans because the intended route I would be taking just happens to pass through one of the major graffiti hubs in the city.
I also decided that I’d do another photo journal thing like when I rode my bike home that one time.
The design of these condos (it's got a twin brother somewhere) is a bit inspiring. However, they could use a lot more greenery
Over the shoulder shot while walking down one of the many alleys that snake around the Spadia area of Toronto. As there are a lot of restaurants and food stores, this alley smelled bad at points.
It's the AGO. Front was redesigned nicely. The rear blue thing looks like ass. Typical Frank Ghery. The OCAD(U) addition looks worse.
Until I saw this I had no idea that the Kensignton Market area had a massive sign. I thought Filmores had the market on such things.
Dundas and Agusta, one of the staple streets of Kensington as seen in next picture.
In this picture, two hipster hangouts. The Boat (yellow sign) and Tenga (across the street, not in picture). Retarded fun all around, but I have to be pretty drunk.
Yep, someone got all political. Main reason for this is that Mr. McMayor wants to 'clean up' the city by removing all the unique wall art that can be found. This sort of thing has me scrambling to get pictures of Graffiti shot before it becomes serious.
Walking past Bellevue which has a lot of older homes (over 80 years old) that are in need of a bit o fixing. There's also a lazy park behind me that everyone chills in.
This was on the way back home. I was again stalking some back alley ways and all of a sudden I see what looks like a festival was happening. Turns out it was some church bazaar happening, but all very cool.
Coming out of another alley way after finding some more graffiti to shoot, and just before the rain. Sneaky Dee's is in there. Good mexican foods.
Sometime soon I should have some pics of the graffiti I shot up. I just have to sort through the 100 photos I shot. Some of them were over 100 feet in length and it’ll take me some time to stitch them together as one long work.
