In the winter, my eyes get tired of white, black, and grey. I miss seeing other colours so instead of taking the main road, I will hazard walking the alleyway behind Queen West.
If you watch The Rick Mercer Report, then you’ve seen the alley that I’m talking about. Here are some pictures that I’ve snapped along the way from the alleys in Queen West and Kensington Market. Occasionally, there will be someone else also admiring the street art and we can have a dialogue about it, as if we we were walking through an art gallery. If you don’t live nearby, here is a taste of some of the murals in the area.
