Today is the last day of the Toronto Light Festival at the Distillery District & I think you should go. I know you are sick of winter & don’t want to leave the house. But, if you are a photographer, art lover or just itching to get out of the house, then you should go.

To remember those who did what so we would not need to, we wanted to share the shots I took of the Tower of London Poppy Art Installation that I took during my trip to London.
The installation is called “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” and each ceramic floor represent a military British death during World War One.
