Off to the Islands

Why We Chose It

Photographer Nicolai Grut snapped this photograph on a ferry en route to Ward’s Island in Toronto. It conveys a very solemn tone through the darkness reflected by the wood benches and flooring, however it’s peacefully countered by the white walls and warm sunshine leaking in through the windows to generate a glimmer of light. The lone passenger and bicycle stand as a focal point in the distance as red lifebelts resemble canopies draping from the ceiling to add a unique perspective of this Toronto ferry ride. This photo sets the perfect mood for the city right now—anticipation for the long weekend, and a touch of melancholy for the rapidly passing summer.
