Tuesday Textures from the AGO

….I love texture in art pieces

There are two main types of texture in art: physical or actual texture that you can feel or the illusion of texture, created by lines and marks made on the canvas. The photos that I took at the AGO last week have actual textures that you can but probably shouldn’t touch.

Pull Up a Seat – Week 1 of 2022

thanks to XingFu Mama for hosting Pull Up a Seat https://xingfumama.blog/2022/01/07/pull-up-a-seat-photo-challenge-2022-week-1/

Today has been the coldest day so far for 2022 or at least it seemed that way as I tried to take photos in High Park. In order to take photos it was necessary to remove my gloves and after about 20 minutes of taking them off and on to push the shutter button my fingers on my right hand were close to acquiring frost bite. I quickly returned to the car and place my hands over the heating vent after cranking up the heat full blast.

The cold, however, didn’t seem to deter some folks from finding a resting spot on some of the park benches. Here are a few of those brave souls.

Thursday Trios – Gifts from the Mall

….November 25, 2021

We rarely go to the mall. Even here in Canada there are Black Friday Sales and we will probably avoid going to any malls and big box stores on Friday. When I have gone to the mall in the last two weeks it has been relatively quiet so I wasn’t uncomfortable going there to window shop. I have to admit that a lot of my shopping is still done on-line. Yesterday my husband had to step into the mall because his eye doctor has her office there. After his appointment he couldn’t wait to leave and he was out of there like his hair was on fire.

I, on the other hand, like to window shop and take in the Christmas decorations. Here are a few lovely trios of gifts some of which I could never afford to buy.
