Symbol Bike Ring

This is another of the bike rings designed by the students of Bloor Collegiate and installed along Bloor St W near the school. This peace symbol was designed by Gerald Holtom in 1958 for the British nuclear disarmament movement and the symbol itself comes from the semaphore signs for N and D. I had no idea it was such an old symbol!

Wearing Of The Green

This would have been perfect for St Patrick's Day but it had passed when I took this pic at James Gardens. It's amazing how those green heads of the Mallards glowed in the sun!

Mellow Yellow

Every time I pass by this house I think how pretty it looks and the snow last week really made the yellow stand out. Such an unusual colour to paint your brick house but it works well!

Little Barn Library

I was wandering through the High Park neighbourhood and spotted this unusual Little Library so headed over for a pic. It's nicely done don't you think? And it has lots of space for books.

Some Numbers

I really liked the font used on these house numbers. They seem so deco or moderne to me.

"We Are All Animals"

This art piece is found in front of a condo on Bloor St opposite from High Park. The piece consists of the 2 canine figures and the digitized scene that you can see on the wall. The scene is actually moving with water flowing and trees blowing etc. When I first saw this I thought the dogs were waiting for someone to come out of the doors but they are meant to be watching the screen as the piece explores the relationship of nature to a digital world. Done in 2015 by artists Public Studio the piece is titled "We Are All Animals".

Connection

This mural titled "Keele Connection" is found on the underpass outside the Keele Subway station where it connects with the local buses. At this point in our subway system the trains are above ground and are running on the overpass. The artists for this one are Rob Matejka & Tommy Matejka and it was done in 2015. I really like the clouds they have painted on the supports that are closer to us!
