This is Colin. Colin is a spray paint artist, who has been working to eradicate graffiti in my neighborhood here in Toronto. Colin was creating this mural on a detached double car garage last summer. … that’s why he was shirtless, it was summer. Just so you know.
Damian is a dancer practicing balance control on a not-so-tight rope in our local park here in Toronto. He lives in our neighborhood.
According to Damian, good balance and a strong core go hand in hand, and a strong core usually means better posture, less back pain and improved performance.
It was springtime weather here in Toronto so, I watched him practice for a while hoping that he would remove his jacket at some point. Why? So I could show you his six-pack, that’s why. Well, he didn’t. But isn’t he a cutie?
Last summer, there was an abundance of street artists here in Toronto. This young woman was a street chalk artist, busily creating Ariel, the main character in Disney’s 1989 movie “The Little Mermaid.” She was working very slowly making sure the colors were perfect. I was mesmerized. It was just so amazing how she mixed colors using a limited number of chalks. I just had to take pictures of this very talented girl.
But by then, a professional-looking photographer got in the picture and started shooting this way and that way using his obviously expensive camera. I waited until he finished but this showoff would not move out of the way. As I had to leave shortly, I didn’t have a choice but take pictures of the street chalk artist and her creation with the darn photographer also in action.
I guess in this case, size mattered. You know, the bigger the better. Camera… I was talking about camera.
