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.
