beauty on the way to work

These beautiful blown glass flowers are encased in the ceiling of the entrance outside the Soho Hotel – camera pointing straight up. Just walking under them gives me pleasure. Wellington Street, Toronto.

I was enchanted with that sprinkler alarm. Pearl Street, Toronto

Wondering if this blog should have extra categories: gates, and brick. Pearl Street, Toronto.

This morning I took a windier route to work than usual, sticking into some smaller, less busy "back" streets.

    Those glass flowers are just stunning. I am struck time and time again by how lovely your city is. I would have such fun there!

    You have a wonderful urban eye, Jennifer. I am glad you are taking me along on your back routes to work.

    Thanks pal. It’s got lots of beauty in it. Being overtaken by glass towers at the moment, and I am among those concerned about the seemingly unrestrained speed at which the old is being replaced by the new.
    It sure would be fun to show you my city one day!

    Well I’m sure glad to have you along on the journey, Julie! Thanks!

    Those flowers are just amazing! Beautiful! I’m not surprised that you smile when you walk under them!
