Big Buildings

April 28, 2010 – King Street @ Jordan Street, Toronto

I am always awed by the shear beauty of the city. Either while walking amongst these massive buildings, really, massive pieces of art, that a group of artisan’s came together to produce or while viewing from a distance the skyline of the city. It’s truly awesome. The enormous size is one thing. How it dwarfs you and seems unfathomable that someone thought up to contruct it and that they were able to contruct it. Sometimes, I just shake my head. And then when you really stop and look, take the time, you notice the detail that has been incorporated, especially the older buildings. Carvings and Gargoyles! Have you seen them? Some of them you don’t notice until you look waaay up, to the top tiers of these structures. And once you look up, you can only say wow!
