“Soaking up summer 😎” – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Christie Pits Park – Toronto

In the now removed wading pool in Bellevue Square Park, I had painted the concentric circles of that Labyrinth in a wavy twisty style. The idea was to mimic the look of the Labyrinth under water, for when the wading pool was water-free, which was most of the year. It didn’t work out so well […]

“이젠 아빠가 퇴근하기만을 기다리는 다니엘 시후. 아빤 이제 캠핑의자를 나무그늘에 놓고 앉아서 지켜본다.” – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Eglinton Park – Toronto
