Trading the concrete jungle for greener scenery

Posted in family, photography at 10:37 am by Jennifer

It’s the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We’re always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something. (Crash)

Toronto is a crowded space where we’re all just strangers passing eachother by on our way from one place to somewhere else, and our interactions with eachother blend seamlessly into the city backdrop. I love Toronto and can’t picture myself anywhere else than my downtown apartment, people watching from a Queen West coffee shop or meeting friends for a bite to eat. But every so often it’s nice to get a bit of air and scenery. And so I did.

I just got back from a good stretch of time in Sudbury visiting family and wanted to share a few photos I took, along with one of me and my baby cousin. (Because she is just adorable beyond words and wanted to show off our “art”.)

So here’s some Sudbury scenery, enjoy!

    The autumnal colours of Sudbury look absolutely adorable: whilst we’ve got autumn here in London (UK, not ONT, regrettably) it’s not nearly as beautiful as it appears there.

    Can’t decide which of your pictures I prefer between “Change in Perspective” and “Across the Water” – both are very well composed and equally peaceful.

    As for “Les Artistes”, who did the colouring in, was that you or your cousin?

  2. Fall was one of the things I really missed when I lived in the UK. Glad you liked the shots, they look serene but I got covered in mud, dirt and leaves taking them.

    We were both crayon wielding artists, each of us took a page. I’ll leave it open ended who did which one.
