Gates Revisited

I showed you one of these gates, that are found around the grounds of Osgoode Hall on Queen St beside City Hall, in a winter shot back in 2011 (see it here). I've always loved them and this time went for a pic taken from inside looking across to our Opera House on the other side of Queen St. This type of gate is known as a cow gate since they are used on farms to control the movement of cattle.

Seems kinda fancy-dancy for controlling cows but I'm sure it works. I don't see any cows, though. :))

Well, crowds of people are just like cattle ...or ...zombies... they need controlling too... this works great I guess...

One of my favourite places in the city. Winter or summer you can get great photos.
You can also dine in Osgoode Hall.
