layer

I walked home from work this evening. My usual route takes me close to Massey Hall and the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres.* The paint on the south side of the theatre is peeling off, and it's revealing the brickwork in a way that I find very pleasing. Tonight, the reflected sunlight from a nearby building added an extra layer of interest. Standing on Victoria Street, I took this picture:



There it was: through the streetcar wires, dappled in light... a pattern on top of a pattern that made my grumpy mood disappear.

I dunno.

It kinda looks to me like a infant kicking and screaming and clawing at the face of his horrible, mean, psychologically abusive, cunt-face whore-mother.

Is that what you see?

Um, no. That's not what I see.

Very nice!
I had a similar experience on Saturday, seeing the reflection of an old building in the glass facade of a new one. The glass slightly warped the image of the old, and made it new and exciting.

This is so awesome, Floyd. The grid patterns of light, the criss-crossing of the wires and the peeling paint all make this image very interesting. Well done! =)

You were walking back from a night at Butchie's weren't you?!

Just noticed this when I was out at lunch:

That building is back of the Elgin Theatre on Victoria Street. The glass building on the left is 2 Queen E. Massey Hall is further up the block.

Wow... It's beautiful. I like this picture!

Jason said...

You should have had someone else take the picture, so that you could have stood in front of that building.

It kinda looks like Club 501 in Indy.
