brick works, part one.

by two after twenty

 

 

I finally made my way to the Brick Works last week with my good pal Joel. The Evergreen Brick Works used to be one of Toronto’s oldest brick factories. It was active for over 100 years and, after fires and more wear and tear, has been reclaimed and transformed into an environmental cultural centre. We had a lot of fun walking through the kilns and piles of rubble (and yes, it was a big mistake to wear black flats during this trip … guh). It’s such a beautiful and truly unique place, and everyone living in the city should visit at least once.

This post features some photos taken by Joel, which are mainly the ones of myself (guh x2). Joel and I both confirmed what we already suspected: when I’m in front of the camera, I really don’t know what to do with myself. Don’t be fooled by these two or three portraits – I had to set aside a crap load of truly awkward/funny face photos of myself (some of those may make it into part 2 … but no promises).
