Random saturday pics

Saturday we went to Kensington Market for coffee and a chat – we always run into someone willing to discuss the problems of the world there – and I snapped a few pictures. It wasn’t really photo shoot day since we left very late and the light was too harsh. But since there’s no end of neat things & people at Kensington, I couldn’t really keep myself from snapping at least a few shots:

this lady was sitting in front of us in the streetcar and I loved her colours… We then made it into Louie’s, our favourite spot to sit, chat, and watch the world go by… literally…

Across from Louie’s there’s a fruit stand and everybody stands or meets friends at that corner…


This guy was really cute, he kept walkign around and I wish I could have taken a better picture of him:


But the best thing that day was the green car. Some activists took a car, hollowed it and filled it with dirt. They then proceeded to make a garden out of it. Very funny:

We then went to BCE Place to meet a friend. They had had a party the day before and left some giant balls hanging from the ceiling. It was beautiful! One of those occasions I wished I had a wide angle lens…

Everybody stopped to take pictures…


Tomorrow we move our personal stuff to the apartment. Wednesday the truck comes with the stuff from storage. Can’t wait!
