Franny Travels Goes To New York!

Architecture, Food & Drink

I got the chance to go to New York over the summer! I went in mid-June for a work trip and then later on in the month for the long weekend. The first time I went there I was 10 years old but the city definitely made an indelible impression on me. I still remember being in the middle of Times Square and being astounded by the amount of people there and the frantic pace. There’s so much to do there and during my time I had the opportunity to check out a lot of cool landmarks and, of course, dine at some pretty amazing restaurants.

In the Skin of a Lion…..Yonge St, Toronto

Architecture, Black & White Photography

This photo is taken on the 18th floor of the Toronto Star building and reminds me of one of my favourite books, Michael Ondaatje’s In the Skin of a Lion.

It’s a great story told through the perspective of immigrants, who literally build and construct the city with their workman hands, risking their lives as they stand on the ledge with the wind buffering against their skin.

The city is constantly a work-in-progress, its identity ever changing and thus creating a world of great possibilities.
