This is my Toronto: more from Cedarbrae's youth!
We had such an overwhelming response to our program back in April, as part of Keep Toronto Reading Month, that I had to come back with another post to display some of the great photos we received.
Another blogger suggested I put all the photos into an album, so now you can check out the entire collection here. It includes the photos you see here as well as a bunch of others, so be sure to take a look.
We got such a variety of angles and subjects, and it was difficult to choose just a couple to highlight. Here are a few more photos we received that depicted individual interpretations of Toronto and its mix of neighbourhoods!
Above, left, Keerthijan snapped just the tops of some trees in his Scarborough neighbourhood. Trees in bloom make a recurring appearance in many of these photos; it's definitely a nice way to capture Spring! Viethu also took a bright shot of nature against the backdrop of high-rise buildings in the east end in the photo above, on the right. In the middle photo, Shriya captured a Toronto streetcar at night: I love the lights behind it as the streetcar just turns 'round the bend. It catches that sense of 'bright lights' and downtown life, and also reminds us how important transit is to a city like Toronto.
Down below, Muaz gets up close to a dandelion, maybe in an effort to offer a little focus on what's generally considered a lowly weed...?
Laiba and Dhurvi offer us the next two photos, from left to right, respectively. Both focus on the texture and shape of the leaves on the plants, but in very different settings. Laiba shot this on the Scarborough waterfront, while Dhurvi caught the sunlight on this plant right in her own home.
Thanks again to all of our talented young photographers, and to Andrew Williamson, who helped lead the Snapped! workship in April. I hope you all keep taking pictures of all the spaces and places that you find beautiful, inspirational and memorable!
