Gehry Curves

 This is the front facade of the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario). The ladies I showed you yesterday were walking under the overhang to the entrance. This curved area is part of the Frank Gehry designed redo of the gallery which took place in 2004. Behind the curves is a wonderful bright space the Galleria Italia. Gehry grew up just a couple of blocks from the gallery so it is nice that he got to put his own stamp on it. I'll show a bit more tomorrow.

Shop At The AGO

While wandering around near the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) I saw these women coming towards me along the walkway and had to catch a shot of that orange outfit. I love it! They were heading into the gallery to see an exhibition. More from this area tomorrow.

Taking Down The Crane

I often wondered how they remove the crane after a condo has been built and now have the answer - they bring in another crane to do it. This mid rise building has reached its top so a mobile crane was brought in and the building's crane was removed in sections and put onto flatbed trucks. The scary part for me was watching the 2 guys crawling around on the sections of the old crane to attach the cables. Not a job I would do for anything in the world. You can see them in the upper middle of the shot.

Happy Cat

This happy "Cat in the Hat" was spotted on the side of a coffee shop. It looks as if the cat is doing a bit of mural painting himself. The artist signature is Chuck.

Pretty Pansies

I loved the soft purple tones of this patch of Pansies that I spotted near Casa Loma. They looked so cheerful.

Happy Bee

When passing by a large patch of Alium blooms in a front garden I noticed that almost every flower had a bee buzzing around it. They were a happy group indeed.

Spring Day At The Park

This is a shot looking in the other direction from yesterday's pic. I was in Grange Park which is located directly behind the Art Gallery Of Ontario (AGO) and beside the Ontario College of Art & Design University (OCAD). OCAD features that wonderful addition suspended over the older traditional building which you see in the background. The architect for the addition was Will Alsop. I love it.
