Christmas Countdown: 10 Prophetic Snowflakes
Love it or hate it, the city is once again covered in holiday glitter and glamour. I've been searching all corners of Toronto for holiday exhibitionism, good or bad, and for each of the remaining 10 days until Christmas I'll be posting a different photo essay documenting the annual make-over. Today I feature snowflakes.
I had every intention of including at least one actual falling snowflake in this series, but over the past couple weeks Toronto hasn't had much in the way of snowfall, at least nothing like the massive piles of last winter. Still, it wasn't that hard to find decorative snowflakes in store windows, on coffee cups and hanging everywhere across the city - small prophets of what's still to come.
Let it be known that I could have just as easily featured a trashed Starbucks cup in the series - there are just as many littered around the city and its holiday cup also has snowflakes.
