Make this the last but most important lesson in my quest to become a better photographer: you can't get better if you don't actually take any photographs.
I got back at it this morning.
There's epic construction along my usual commute to Friday morning class at the Purple Purl. I've been trying a new route, the College/Carlton/Gerrard streetcar, and there's a 10 minute walk done Jones Avenue towards the shop.
It was a hot, bright morning, and I was looking around the unfamiliar neighbourhood as I walked. I loved the little peeks into the backyards through the alleys between the house.
This one seems particularly inviting: sunshine leading me down the alley, to an open gate, through which you can pass into a lush green garden. Urban oasis indeed.
I'm pretty pleased with this one: no edits made at all. I sort of wish the recycling bins weren't there, but they do add to the "urban-ness" of it all.
