2018

My first post for 2018. I thought this image worked for the first day of the year. Hoping things are looking up.

Gleaming Ghost Town

I was checking out some of the new subway stops in Toronto the other day. The phrase that comes to mind is “gleaming ghost town.”

Above the Subway

I’ve always found the outdoor/above ground subway stations in Toronto fascinating, especially ones (like Rosedale station below) on the oldest part of what is now called Line 1.

Surreal

The bus stop where I catch the bus to work every day is in front of an apartment building, and sometimes discarded furniture is found in the general area. For the last few days this old vinyl chair has been sitting at the stop, almost inviting people to have a seat waiting for the bus. This morning at 5:45 am it was covered in frost.

Is This It?

On the bus, going to work in the dark at 6:30 in the morning. I so often see the hollow fatigue of those around me. Are they wondering if this is the totality of their existence?
