Sunday at the AGO

When Bill saw that this house didn't have any cars in front of it he took the picture. It is across the street from the Art Gallery of Ontario.
We were on our way to the AGO to look at the Goya and James Gillray etchings and lithographs. Later we got caught up in this room and the one's nearby.
Bill agreed to have a peek at the Contemporary art on the 5th floor, so he got the elevator while I took a picture of this nice furniture.
We love to walk down the Frank Gehry spiral staircase from the 5th floor.
The view is wonderful.
The way the stairs frame the view is wonderful.
Bill composed this fabulous abstraction.
It's always fun to go down these stairs.
Gehry's staircase ends in the Walker Court.
Bill calls this Elmslie Descending a Staircase
He asked me if the famous staircase reminded me of an umbilical cord or an intestine. Both, definitely.
On our way back to Spadina I had a better look at this boarded-up shop-renovation embedded amongst the crowded shopfronts on the south side of Dundas in Chinatown.
