Each day I leave the office and wander around in a haze of heat happiness. And today, I actually took some photos as I walked around the Grange Park.
It's very pretty, if "real", which is to say I've been known to call it the Grunge.
Ridiculous and Sublime: The St. George Church Tower next to some rent-controlled semi-brutalist mishmash structure
With a short right turn, this is the view looking out of Grange Park to the south (towards Queen West)If I eat one more frozen yogurt with shredded coconut while walking around this park, I will officially qualify for "girl with problem" status. But what am I to do? It's all blue sky and hotter than hell and lunchtime.
Today I went on some kind of sugar high and decided I'd make an architourist video for you, my fabulous readers.
In case you've ever been curious to put a voice to my photos, here's your chance but I warn you:
- I'm not very interesting here - though I'm fascinating in real life! This is a one shot, spur of the moment film experience. In truth, I can't believe I walked around talking to myself with people zooming by!
- It looks crappy: I filmed it on my cell phone. That is never a good idea. Unfortunately, everything is low-res granular, hence the supporting photos above. I want you to know it was as clear as a bell out there.
Hilariously, at one point I refer to the old house in the foreground of this park and regret that I can't remember its function. Um, it's the freakin' Grange?!
Let's just say I'm not going to quit my day job :-)
