Kensington Market

Project 52 Entry #23

This past Saturday my husband and I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon in Kensington market, navigating the narrow streets, taking in all the eclectic shops and thoroughly enjoying this unique neighbourhood. Kensington Market is located in downtown Toronto and is a diverse multicultural neighbourhood. Kensington Market also lays claim to Canadian pop TV culture. The show King of Kensington, which ran for 1975 to 1980 starred Al Waxman and by Canadian standards was a big hit here. You may remember Al Waxman (who passed away in 2001) as Lt. Samuels from the TV series Cagney & Lacey.

The fun part of being there this past weekend is that the neighbourhood was all decked out for Halloween.

As always you can click on an image to see a larger version.

  8. These are so awesome, Edith. Great processing and you’ve capture the scenes so nicely. There is something about that 4th image that draws me back to it. I like that one quite a bit.

    Looks like an old eclectic neighborhood. I need to put Toronoto on a list of place to visit someday.

  18. Great set of images Edith. I visited here in 2003 and went to this area. It is very much like the Camden Town area of London.

  20. Very nice shoot. My favourite is absolutely the last one. Fantastic post-processing and it really gives a spooky feeling, very appropriate on Halloween. The graphic quality is just outstanding, and I really like the little touch of blue you have left in the picture.

  21. This looks like a fascinating place to have a wander, and you’ve captured it really well – the last shot in particular is especially spooky.
