Toronto makes me laugh.
Today I had a happy accident when I got off the subway two stops early because my brain is broken.
I'll paint the scene: I was already running late to have lunch (burgers!) with my friend William Foley who is a fantastic actor and photographer. I implore you to check out his website Kreddible Trout Photography.
So for whatever reason I got off on Bloor Street and quickly realized my mistake. I was about to go back into the underground when I saw this crazy, huge, blue tarp whipping around in the intense wind. I had made it a goal to get a wind photo today and this 3$ mistake seemed like the perfect opportunity.
What made it more perfect is everyone was just walking into the thing.
It seemed like the large, unruly tarp had come unhinged in the 50-80km winds we had been having and understandably so. What I couldn't quite figure out was had someone moved the black and orange cone to the edge of the tarps reach as a means to deter people walking onto it or had it also been blown there?
Or had it always been there...
Regardless, most people approached the crazy, huge, blue tarp without hesitation as they watched it whipped across their predecessors.
Scant few chose the 'long' way around the cone.
It all struck me as rather funny watching stone faced Torontonians wander through a crazy, huge, blue tarp in one of the cities most expensive areas to shop.
