Saturday Journey on Queen St. W. ,Trinity-Bellwoods park, Nathan Phillips Square

DSC_0005 DSC_0006My first stop was an installation in Trinity-Bellwoods park by Canadian artist Geoffrey Farmer.

Quite something to watch and feel. For all the activity going on in the park, it offered a chance to stop and think and reflect as each image created a thought or a memory. The installation is one of many spread all across Toronto as part of the annual Luminato Festival.  DSC_0028Next past the stage being set-up for the MMVAs to Nathan Phillips Square for some sights and sounds of this years Toronto Jazz Fest.DSC_0187 DSC_0101
Hip-hop and R & B were well represented and provided some great summer sounds.
