Nuit Blanche – Recharged and Ready

I really enjoy Nuit Blanche. Every year I actually get to take it in my creative juices are recharged. This year was no different. It was a bit chilly, but nothing a l’il Tim’s couldn’t fix.

I didn’t see a lot of the 200 installations, but enjoyed most of what I did see. I didn’t take a lot of pics either just took in what I saw. Enjoy.

EXHIBIT @ THE AGO 

I am not sure if the AGO was opened for previous years, but what a special treat it was.  To get to see some of the current exhibits and ones just for Nuit Blanche.  In particular, there is a photo contest on right now.  The four finalists have been selected and are on display.  I didn’t make the cut this year …

One piece that caught my eye was by Nandipha Mntambo.  I believe it is called “The Matador” or at least it should be in my opinion.  Not only is she the photographer, but she designed the outfit and chose the set.  I liked the piece before I knew anything about the artist and the story behind it. Learning about the artist and this photo all came together made me love it.

Traffic was intense, but TO’s Finest did a good job controlling the flow.  This was a shot at University and Queen.

I am going to start sharing more.  Let me know what you’d like to see more of.  I have thousands of pics that have never seen the light of day and they all have a story behind them.

Have a picture perfect day.  LKP
