backstreets of toronto: croft street revisited

Readers of this site love Croft Street. Hits still come in for the series of posts I wrote four years ago about one of the city's most interesting streets. The graffiti, murals and other decorations that line the street are ever-evolving—several of the works I captured back in 2005 are long gone. A post-Nuit Blanche stroll through the neighbourhood provided an excuse to snap a few shots of the current crop of art along Croft Street's garage doors and walls.

A work in progress? A partial whitewash of previous art/graffiti? A grand artistic statement? All of the above?

Croft Street October 2009 - Rhino

Nobody seems concerned that a rhinoceros has moved into the neighbourhood, unless all of the neighbours have turned into horned animals.
