I was starting to get cabin fever so I really wanted to get out of the house today. It’s especially important this week, since it’s my last week in Toronto before I move up to Markham for the next three months. I plan on getting out every single day this week.
Today’s CMGlimpse prompt is “Love” and I immediately thought of this art installation in Toronto’s Distillery District. I am a huge fan of this installation.
It’s basically a big sign that says “Love with a heart” next to it and you “lock” your love onto the art piece. Similar concept to that of the lock bridges in Paris and Florence.
I had a picture in my mind that I wanted to take but turns out my lens is not wide enough, but I ended up getting this photo and I’m pretty happy with it. I plan on coming back in spring or summer with Brendan so I can put a lock on for us. 🙂
Here is what the installation looks like. It is constructed out of steel, steel mesh and reclaimed lumber.
Here are the instructions given on the sign:
1. Initial (the lock)
3. Kiss (your partner)
4. Toss the key
5. Share #DistilleryLove
