Scenes Where Roads Meet

Toronto is a city of more than 2.5 million people – that doesn’t include the rest of the amalgamated city, just the original city. It is estimated that a million cars ‘live’ there and another million come in every day. One day not long ago, I had the joy of being a passenger in the car of a dear friend who understands my shutterbug tendencies as we drove down Bloor Street from Lansdowne in the west to Bay street at the centre of the upper downtown area.

This week, I’m sharing some of the intersections along that stretch of Bloor Street; places where streets, vehicles and people converge; where old styles meet new; where cultures come together in harmony. The Toronto Transit Commission boasts translation to some 73 different languages, by the way. It truly is a city where cultures converge and it has managed to do so with grace, each neighbourhood distinct to the nationality that lives there.
