It’s like a castle mommy


I took this photo on a warm Saturday afternoon in February, the 20th, actually. Typically Toronto is covered in snow and ice and it’s barely fit for polar bears, but not this Saturday. I don’t recall the temperature precisely, only that it was a pleasant day, more like late fall than mid winter. I stopped and sat on this bench and that little girl beside me kept saying to her Mom, “It’s like a castle, mommy.” She was pointing to Roy Thompson Hall behind us, in the theatre district. It was sooo cute. And she kept looking at me and sort of shyly smiling. I sat the camera on my lap facing them but then made like I was trying to fix something on it. Actually, I was snapping shots of the scene. I got very lucky in that I caught her pointing at the Hall as she again mentioned how it looked like a castle. Of course her mom readily agreed, as would any parent in that situation. It is perhaps my favourite photo of that day, simply because of the fond memory of the moment.
