Toronto Photo Walks: Queen's Park/Wellesley

Well Saturday was an interesting day for going walking and taking pictures. It was a rainy blustery day when I left home. When I arrived at the start point, Museum Station, it wasn't too bad out. The rain had stopped, but the wind was blowing and it was a little cool out. Never the less, there were a group of brave people there to carry on and try to get some interesting shots.

Unfortunately an hour into the walk it started raining and blowing fiercely. We soldiered on and made our way from store entrance to store entrance. Ducking underground when we could. Eventually we went to lunch and tried to see if we could wait out the weather. No dice.

After a leisurely lunch at "The Churchmouse and Firkin", we carried on along Wellesly to Queen's Park. The rain was getting heavier, and the wind stronger. We deviated from our route a bit and ducked into one of the buildings of the University of Toronto to dry off and warm up. Figuring that security would get a little nervous of a group of photographers we moved on and went east along College.

At this point we decided to call it an early day and headed to the "Elephant and Castle" at Yonge and Gerrard streets. The weather beat us and we were a smaller group at the end. I still managed to get some interesting pictures. As well I managed to add more sculptures to my photo collection.

A few pictures today, while I go through and figure out how to discuss the latest walk. Check back in. Wet feet, and wet clothes are good training walks.
