Photo A Day August | #photoadayaug | Fat Mum Slim

I’ve been doing the #dailybookpic suggested by Cassandra Neace at Book Riot, but the idea originally came from Australian blogger FatMumSlim who posts a challenge list each month using the hashtag #photoaday(month). So I’ll be joining them for #photoadayaug and would love to see some friends jump in as well. Here is the list, and there’s more info at her blog.

An alternative view of the AGO.

I had never been around to the rear of the new-ish Art Gallery of Ontario transformation (Frank Gehry) until last Friday when I found myself with some time to kill between dates. I settled onto a bench on Grange Park and enjoyed the sun and a good book. The back of the gallery is such a contrast to the front, yet almost as interesting. The shots above are from my iPhone, so not the greatest of quality.

Below, an image of the front facade from the AGO website.

Also from the AGO website, a shot of the staircase (above) from the inside.

Shot 1:  Love this poster on Bloor West near Spadina.  

Shot 2:  On my to-do list.  The Bata Shoe Museum.  Bonus opportunity for star-sighting.  Reports Shinan Govani in today’s National Post:

That tapping into his inner Carrie Bradshaw the other day was none other than Mr. Omnivorous — John Malkovich! The stupendous star of the big screen was spotted over the weekend at Toronto’s famous foot locker, a.k.a. The Bata Shoe Museum, on Bloor.

Green Photo Challenge

Jodi Anderson over at The Women’s Colony is hosting another photo-challenge.  This week’s theme is “Green”.   All of my shots this time are from my archives.  All taken by me, but in the past.

This is a glass sculpture on the ceiling of the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Hull, Quebec.

A fountain/fish pond at the Canada Agriculture Museum in Ottawa (known as The Experimental Farm by locals!)
A frieze in the lobby of the Field Museum in Chicago.
At the Wye Marsh, Midland Ontario.
An entrelac knitting project in Noro Kureyon yarn.
Chardonnay grapes at William Hill Estate winery, Napa CA.
Andy Warhol quote in my son’s room in res.
