Writing with Light

Cabbagetown Corner Convenience

Cabbagetown is a neighbourhood on the east side of downtown Toronto. Last fall my photography club held a photo outing at Riverdale Farms which is in Cabbagetown. After we were done shooting at the farm we all met at a restaurant for lunch. I decided that I had a little time before the meet up time and decided to do a little street photography.

As I’m sure you know from some of my previous posts I love street art and am usually in awe of the talent of street artists. I came across this mural and it certainly disappointment.

Have a great weekend everyone.

    • Thank you so much Katalina. I wish I can remember the exact street. It’s a side street off Parliment.

  3. I’m right there with you Edith, I love the street art around here. Cabbagetown is such an amazing little pocket, a total throwback to the origins of this city, and I think the couple in the mural embody the ideal of the day.

    • Wow…you’re amazing. Thanks so much. I always kick myself for not taking notes of where I am when I’m out shooting.
