Seen On My Walk

At the corner of Knight and Kingsway, there is a small commercial-residential complex which includes apartments, a grocery store, a public library, a bank, a dentist and an Indian restaurant. The developers of this project were a little skimpy on the elbow room of the underground parking garages, but they did hide a lot of lovely and often-strange bronze sculptures around the complex. I’ve decided to try and find and take pictures of them all as I walk by.

The otters are still enjoying their Halloween pumpkin. Don’t judge them.

otterEvery major city in the world has some big impressive buildings and architecture, as a rule–museums, monuments, churches. But it’s the little random touches that always reveal a city’s soul. The murals and graffiti, the playgrounds and public parks,┬áthe gargoyles and statues, the signs and chalk drawings on the sidewalk, the decorations in shop windows…they all add up to give you a sense of what sort of people live in a place, and what their lives are about.
