Eric and I decided to take a Sunday afternoon stroll through a neighborhood of Toronto called Kensington Market.
It's unpretentious and Bohemian-esque...including several blocks of bazaar-like shops and ethic food cafes and restaurants.
It is definitely one of the more colorful areas of town. Click on the pix for more detail.
Included here are some of the larger of the many examples of "wall art" or murals to be found on the buildings in the area. There were smaller pieces, too.
Food, cafes and restaurants are everywhere as are used clothing, produce and knickknack shops.
And crowds of people.
Incredibly casual and relaxed, Kensington Market doesn't give the impression that it is trying to remain something it once was or even trying to be something it isn't, it just is.
It was kind of cool to see so many specialty food shops and ethnic eateries. Where is there a cheese shop in the Yonge/Eglinton area where I live? I couldn't tell you.
Anyway, the murals were everywhere...
...on every building and in every alley.
Aren't the birds sthuper?
