Another Craft Brewery

I spotted this sign in the Junction area recently and wasn't aware of the company but apparently it is a relatively new craft brewery that has beer available at several area bars and restaurants. I'll have to give it a try! And yes that is snow piled in the corner.

A Heritage Door

This is the entrance to the Wembly Apartments, a mid-rise apartment building on Spadina Road at St Clair Ave. The building was constructed in 1921 in Tudor Revival style and has been given heritage designation so the exterior will stay the same although the interiors can be updated.

Play It

I took this pic of this utility box on Bloor St a while ago so I'm not sure if it is still as pristine as this but it certainly stood out at the time. The artist is Jerry Silverberg and he did it in 2013.

Theme Day - "Smell"

The theme day for the City Daily Photo Blog community for May is "Smell". I thought of flowers of some kind but we really don't have many flowers open yet this spring so I settled on this very odoriferous display case of sausages found in a local grocery store which has wonderful specialty areas within the store. The strong whiff of garlic from this won out over the cheese display!

Yellow For Spring

It is not only all the spring flowers that are yellow at this time of year but also the goldfinches have changed back to their bright yellow after appearing in dull grey feathers all winter! I took this through a slightly dirty window so it isn't the sharpest image.

Sunset Over The Allotment Gardens

There is a very long row of allotment gardens that runs along below these hydro lines and one night as I passed by the sky was so beautiful that I turned around and went back for a pic. It is so nice to finally see clear skies after what seems like months of clouds!

Rough And Ready

There was something about this simple staircase I saw in a small park that pleased my eye. It seems to be so unpretentious with its simple log handrail and rough wooden steps.
