Turtle in The City


I was parked illegally right beside police headquarters, waiting for someone, when I spotted this wonderful turtle and chevron pattern so of course I grabbed the camera and jumped out for a quick pic. I think the door is a back entrance to the "Native Child And Family Services of Toronto" building which is located a block south. Their building is on my list of places for next year's Doors Open since it is supposed to be fabulous inside. I rather liked the effect of the guy rushing through my shot!

I'm going to have to visit some of the Doors Open as it's such a great way to see places on the cheap. Besides, most of the venues are truly interesting.

This is a beautiful sign! Do you think it was made by some native artist?

I like it too! WHen you get in there next year, you'll have to get some shots for us. :)

Looks even better when enlarged. A nice contrast of Native art and modern building.

That is beautiful so rare we can find that sign. And many of us don't know what that means. Happy Wednesday!

I like the turtle. We should all plan our Doors Open weekend together (those of us who in this area) and divide he city up so we can share out photos!
