“Art is not a handicraft, it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.”
– Leo Tolstoy
This is a very non-typical photo for me, but I do have a habit of making images of things that I find interesting or unusual.
Yesterday, I spend a few hours touring the area of Bloor Street and Church Street in Toronto. It’s an area which I drive through frequently when visiting my daughter, who lives in the area. During these drives, I have noticed some interesting architecture and have made note of them for a future walking visit. That opportunity presented itself and I went to see some of these features close up.
One of the features that I’ve been intrigued with is this art installation at the very top of Jarvis street. It’s a series of tall red tubbes, which stand about ten to fifteen meters tall. There is a complimentary installation just south of it, consisting of thinner blue tubes on an angel. I prefer these red tubes, which appear to be reaching up the side of the building like some subterranean monster.
Like I said, this type of photography is not my forte, but I was please at how the resulting photo portrayed the scene I witnessed.
For those interested, here’s a Google Streetview image of the location.
