Proof that urban beautification exists.

I caught the Ansel Adams and Alfred Eisenstaedt exhibit on now at the AGO. Strange pairing notwithstanding, it is an overwhelming exhibit with over 170 photographs between the two photographers. One thing is certain: you never fully realize how much impact Ansel Adams' work has until you see the original prints. Reproductions just don't do the photos any justice. I've always respected Adams' work but some of the prints nearly moved me to tears -- absolutely incredible.

isn't it incredible when a photograph can have such an impact? I'm jealous...I'd love to see that exhibit.

interesting.. what's it mean? for a sunflower to grow outta nowhere?
where's the stalk?
albeit nostalgic, but i can't get the logic.
maybe it's just me..

jayne: The sunflower isn't real -- it's silk, or plastic, or whatever they make fake flowers out of. As to why someone would put it there, who knows? Completely random, but it made me smile. I should mention to those keeping score that this was shot in Kensington Market in Toronto. Thanks for the comments!
