Today I met up with my dear friend and sister Kayla to celebrate the winter solstice. We decided it would be fun to check out Graffiti Alley in downtown Toronto to get some fun photographs before getting some dinner. This one-kilometre stretch of alley became legitimized in 2011 through the efforts of the Queen Street BIA. It’s now a tourist attraction and fun place for us locals to check out every now and again.
Even though it was late in the day and sun was about to set there were still quite a few people in the alley and almost everyone had a camera in their hand or were posing for a photo.
The art here is absolutely amazing and some look like they are glowing with their bright neon like colours. From chicks with sticks to gorgeous murals of people, there is always so much to appreciate here.
Course there I had to get a shot of myself with some of the art. (Thank you to Kayla for pressing the shutter button for me)
And then it was over. The short stretch of art stained walls leave some wanting to see more but with the sun about to head down for the day it was time to move on and grab some dinner. If you’re in Toronto check out Graffiti Alley for some exceptional art.
