I took a shot of the storefront painted in these vivid colours. It hurt my eyes at the time to even look at it as I found it so garish. It’s on The Danforth, Toronto, Ontario Canada.
Now that I see just this door handle, I have a wonderful experience. This might be somewhere in the Mediterranean where vivid shops are glorious in the bright sun.
What a joy to experience this image as a moment of transportation to another place.
