Though the temperatures have been hovering just above zero degrees here lately, I have been dedicated to begin my season of biking to work. It’s a tad cold at the start of the ride, but I know how to dress, and I’m usually fine after a few minutes.
Last Friday, we actually had a few minutes of sunshine in the morning. So, I made the quick decision to alter my route and bike past Allan Gardens to see if I could snap some shots of the century old green house.
Truth be told, this part of town, and the park that attaches to the greenhouse is a bit sketchy. I’ve ridden through this area at all times of the day and night, and there have been times where I didn’t feel completely safe… but it’s all relative.
Anyway, the image I’ve chosen to share for this week’s black and white post is of the beautiful greenhouse, and it’s neighbouring playground. The greenhouse opened in 1858.
I plan to do a follow-up post that’ll include some different angles.
