Crescent Moon (or groovy canoe in the sky) and Toronto

Another great weekend with Ceri.  Saturday we had breakfast, went and shopped stuff we don't really need for fun (and sensibly didn't buy), went up to Yorkville (despite wicked cold wind coming down from the north) to see the Ice Fest, stopped for pint and snack on Yonge Street on the way back, had dinner at lovely little pizza place in his neighbourhood and then looked at that crescent moon rocking over the city like a groovy canoe before going to bed.

    I have never seen ice sculptures like that before…they really are beautiful aren’t they! I think perhaps part of their beauty is that they are impermanent!
    Yup, I love the long shadows too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, they are beautiful. It was hard to get close to them, everyone was crowded around them getting photo-ops! Yes, impermanent – and perhaps the beauty changing/evolving as they melt!

    Glad to have you along! Years ago I took a long-legged shadow picture like that down in the Beaches. As I recall, that was late February too – wonder what it is about the quality of the long shadows in February – the light? Colour?

    Which makes me think I should try them once a month to compare…
