July is a month that requires a look back post, but first it requires context, so I here is the post I meant to post in July as a photo diary of the day I went to a random art exhibit because I missed art.
Excuse me for a moment as I geek out about how awesome IKEA’s Pop-up shop/ cafe in Toronto is as a branding concept. In one word, brilliant. To set-up a small pop-up shop in the heart of the city, let people play, shop and the while reminding them that a IKEA has all of the things you need for your small downtown space.
Sometimes you find yourself in a IRL deja vu moment – you are in a similar place, doing similar things, which are different, yet oddly similar. So oddly that you start to think you maybe undergoing some strange go back in time to fix your past mistakes moment. Yet, things are not the same, things are very different and the biggest difference is you.
We’ve been lucky that the last few days in Toronto and had beautiful Spring weather – clear skies, sun and warm weather. Yesterday I took advantage of the gorgeous spring weather and went to High Park to see the Cherry Blossoms.
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.
Trust me, you won’t regret it.
To celebrate my home’s 183rd Birthday I’ve put together some of my favourite photo’s. I have a hard time choosing one favourite spot in the city, but I would count Toronto Island, Trinity Bellwoods Park, & the back alleys of the city amongst a few. The rest is yet undiscovered, as this city changes every year.
