“572 Sherbourne Street” - Toronto

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

“572 Sherbourne Street” – Toronto

Nestled among tall apartment buildings and office towers along Toronto’s Sherbourne Street, sits a small group of eight houses, in various states of repair. All are slightly different, but would have been built in the same time period. Over the years, different owners would add or remove features, making the houses even more dissimilar. That is part of what I find appealing about older parts of the city. Every building has its own character, its own story.

This one in particular still has what I assume is the original door, based on the width and millwork. I’m sure it has more than one coat of paint. The brickwork closer to the ground is starting to show the effects of many winters exposed to road salt and the numerous holes above the handrail are evidence of accessories added and removed over time.

It would be interesting to find other photos, across the years to see just how many changes these doorways overgo across time.

For those interested, here’s a Google Streetview image of the location.

“Still Running” – Keady, Ontario

“Still Running” - Keady, Ontario

“We were young. Everyone was young in those days. That’s the main complaint you hear from people who are getting old. You stop seeing young people. You begin to wonder if there are any left and whether there were only young people when you were young.”
― Lloyd Jones

I’ve made many photos of old trucks, most of them wrecks and relics. They are interesting to me mostly because of how the light plays off faded paint, rust and chrome. I tend to not be overly interested in restored versions, with bright yellow paint and shiny tires.

So, when I saw this one driving into the parking area at the Keady Farmer’s Market this past week, I could not help but grab a few shots. Interestingly, there was a brand new GMC pickup truck parked right next to this one and I have a photo of them both together, but I prefer this one, where, through careful framing, I was able to show just the vintage truck in all its rusty glory.
