Danger - Keep Off
Okay, I'm back.
It's been a little over a month and I'm still not shooting much (at least not for myself, I have a few gigs on the go) but I'm past what it was I needed to get past and because I had such a wonderful day today I thought I'd make a post. I think I'll start out with a photo every three or four days, but that's better than nothing, right? Danger - Keep Off
is a fun photo that I captured while out at the City's new Ireland Park
. Perhaps it represent's the city's historical attitude toward public access to the waterfront -- an attitude that's finally changed with many new waterfront projects and initiatives. I love the Toronto waterfront but I do have problems when the city slaps up a dozen signs around a brand new park. While the park is odd in its present geographic context -- tucked on the corner of a very hard-to-access site surrounded by Keep Off and No Tresspassing signs -- it is a location near to where thousands of Irish Immigrants landed in Toronto during the famine. I will post more photos of the Park in the coming days.
Toronto's had a long industrial history on its waterfront and only in recent years has it gotten serious about fixing it but then, suddenly, when they build a beautiful park they slap up about a dozen Danger signs around it that detract from the beauty of the new grass, tress, sculptures/monuments, and the incredible industrial and social heritage of the area. They ruin the park and are simply there to help avoid liability if someone falls or trips. Maybe it's the fault of the lawyers, not the city? I don't know. Anyway, enjoy 'Danger - Keep Off'There seems to have been a new template for shutterchancers that went out while i was away. I guess I missed something. How does one choose which template to use (although I kind of like this old one... I'm just curoius. Let me know if you know!
