Autumn colours in Toronto’s High Park
Autumn in Toronto has disappeared for another year. The fall season always creates fond memories of my childhood – jumping in the leaves, collecting chestnuts and acorns, and the inevitable leaf collection at school. This year, during my walks around the downtown area, I photographed a few of the city’s iconic buildings, the shades of autumn enhancing their appeal.
The 1821 Campbell House, at Queen and University, its lawn littered with leaves
The Canada Life Building on University Avenue, the trees tinged with a hint of autumn
Historic Queen Street West, looking west toward Bathurst Street.
The south facade of the AGO, the OCAD building in the background. In the foreground is the fountain that in former decades graced the Walker Court inside the AGO.
St. Michael’s Cathedral on Bond Street, its tower wrapped in scaffolding
Metropolitan Church on Queen St. East, a single tree announcing the autumn season
Osgoode Hall, the east wing constructed in 1829, and the leaves of fall surrounding the historic building
