photo roundup – part 3

still more leftover (and overdue) photos. enjoy.

a message to dogs:

i’m SO glad i didn’t have to catch the northbound spadina streetcar anywhere that day:

anyone have any idea what a dart coon club is?

with a van like this, i’ve GOT to see this band. (note that i’ve seen it both in the danforth/broadview area, as well as queen west, so maybe it’s fate):

photo roundup – part 2

the second batch in my “catch up” series of photos. excitement! also note that my rss feed should be working better now, in case anyone actually cares.

i LOVE rollerblading, tambourining, cane-toting religious black santa. who doesn’t?

and i also LOVE the old standby: silver elvis. he’s seriously dedicated to his art.

only in toronto would you find a grassless school yard with astroturf in its place:

this is my favourite “store” in toronto – a literal hole in the wall at dundas and spadina that sells phone cards. note that it has no actual store, and behind the counter is simply a stairwell downwards. also note that it gets really really cold there in the winter.

massive photo post

okay okay, i get the message: it’s been too long since i’ve posted anything. thank you to all of you who’ve noticed. as you can imagine, i have about a zillion photos i’ve amassed over the next few months, so i’ll begin the process of sharing them now. consider this part one of many.

if there weren’t bikes near this sign, i’m not 100% sure i would’ve been able to decypher it:

who DOESN’T buy their examination tables from the sidewalk? $150 is a steal!

i’m sure there’s a terrific story to go along with this:

is ellen degeneres the new val kilmer? this is some of the finest graffiti i’ve ever seen:

tempting…but…no:

this was one of my favourite ad campaigns of all time. the artwork is made entirely of mentos!

there were a series of these signs around toronto, designed to promote a movie called something like love is hard work. there were a number of pretty great ones, but this was of course my favourite:

it’s amazing how many things are wrong with this sign:

Pronunciation: 'ch&mp
Function: noun
Etymology: perhaps blend of chunk and lump
Date: 1883
