On the rare occasion I get to travel to almost-downtown Toronto, I find such lovely visual delights. It's such a shame that I have a terrible love for the downtown life and walk, and yet live so far into the suburbs. It's ridiculous.

Most times, when I see art installations like this, I always feel like it's a tribute to someone who had been in a hit-and-run accident in the spot where the installation is.
There was this one house that was gated off, and the gate was wrapped with Caution tape and there were flowers stuck on the grid-gate. I have no idea why this house was gated off, or why there are flowers stuck on it, but it looks terribly interesting. I wonder if there's a story behind it, or if someone had simply decided that a closed-off house just looked too lonely.

  1. That`s so pretty though <3 When I saw the house, I thought of a short story, kind of like the Cat Lady, only she succeeded in ending her life and even though she thought she died a lonely death and no one was really around, there are a few people who remember the old lady for the little things that she did. Like the postman who would receive bakery from her from time to time when he delivered her post, or the child who got his ball back when it flew into her house. The butcher who she`d have little talks with while he cut the meat she would buy, or the young garbage boy who she would exhange smiles and thanks with as he took her garbage off her porch.
