As I was doing a few test lighting shots for my shoot with Tracy, I caught this shot. I really like the relaxed, thoughtful pose. Having her face slightly out-of-focus somehow works and I feel creates a nice dreamy look.

Elizabeth WynWood, Louis Temporale bas-relief - #96/365, originally uploaded by PJMixer.
Designed by Elizabeth Wyn Wood, carved by Louis Temporale, circa 1958.
In the book Creating Memory: A Guide to Outdoor Public Sculpture in Toronto By John Warkentin
, it describes the piece - "a male nude with scrolls floats languorously...Above the man stars and vertical lines are sketched, in the way the aurora borealis used to be illustrated in nineteenth century Arctic explorers' narratives. This is one of a few communication themed bas-reliefs on the the old Maclean-Hunter Publishing office building at University and Dundas".
I've been at this corner many times and never noticed this beautiful piece of art before. Having my camera with me and taking shots every day does open my eyes to the finer elements of urban life.

There were quite a few bikes along Dundas Street outside Ryerson University that I noticed were tagged by the city in violation of some by-law about abandoned bikes and right of way management. The tags were dated about a week ago. I found it Interesting that these two vintage bikes looked in operating condition, except for the rust.
