A Hidden Gem
A you probably noticed in my last post, walking around Kensington Market can be a unique experience. Sometimes as a photographer I think I’m so focused on seeing and finding that next special shot that sometimes I miss what’s actually staring right at me.
I nearly missed Casa Acoreana, a little shop right on the corner of Augusta & Baldwin in the heart of Kensington Market. As we were rounding the corner I was heading to another building intently focused on some graffiti I had spotted. As we just about passed the store I glanced inside and knew I had to go in. I fell in love with this place. It’s a coffee, spice, nut, candy, dried fruit store. Yup! And if you would like them to make you a cup of coffee they will. There’s two small tables set up at the front of the store.
I asked the owner if he would mind if I set-up my tripod and take some pictures and he said…”go ahead.” So I did.
