More Great Hinges

I seem to be stumbling across more and more of these great old hinges as I wander about the city. This is the main entrance to Trinity College which is one of the colleges at U of Toronto. On weekends and after hours one must enter through that smaller door visible on the left. I do love those hinges!

Spring Planter

I spotted this lovely spring planter by the entrance to one of the ever-present condos in the city. What a lift for the spirit it is to see flowers finally. And the cute pussy willows!

Crystal Reflection

The Crystal addition to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) provides a lot of interesting reflections of traffic on Bloor St  and in the upper right window you can see a bit of a crane involved in construction of yet another condo across the road.

Another Red Ride

Just after taking yesterday's pic of the golden polar bear this red Ferrari roared to a stop beside me and since I already had the camera ready I go this shot. I know nothing about these cars except that they always seem to be red!

Bear On The Loose

The coin in the pic in the bus shelter is our $2 coin (aka toonie) and it is usually graced by a golden polar bear but as I walked along Queen's Park I spotted this escapee! The purpose of this is to advertise a competition to design special images for the 5 Canadian circulation coins for 2017 in order to mark the 150th anniversary of our country that year.

Red

I was taking a shortcut through the city and passed this red beauty so of course I pulled over for a pic! It is a 1959 Cadillac Coupe De Ville and after peeking into the interior I can tell you that the whole car was beautifully restored. It was huge and I can't imagine trying to parallel park it! Perfect for the King.

Time

This mural was painted along this fence bordering a playground on College St 2 years ago by artists Sean Martindale and Pascal Paquette. I spent a while attempting to get a shot with no one walking in front of it but finally gave up since it was fairly cold when this was taken in March. It is still easy to see the tribute to the Stones song "Time is on our Side".
