Theme Day - "Movement"

The October theme for the City Daily Photo bloggers is "Movement" and I chose this art piece on Bloor St which consists of a 10ft x 6ft screen that has 9 different LED stick figures that walk across it in a random order. It is titled "People Walking 2006" and is by British artist Julian Opie. It's quite fascinating to watch and I managed to catch a reflection of people walking on the street as well as moi down in the corner.

I like it! Especially the real people walking, reflected in the glass behind the art piece. Art imitates life! Or does life imitate art? ;^)

Aha! A glimpse of you in your blog! Like me you don't often appear in your own blog - feels a bit strange when you do catch sight of yourself.
