Kensington——colorful graffiti art painted on the walls and the female nude models hung on houses


Kingston Market is rather famous in Toronto. This had been the earliest richer suburb in Toronto, it wasn’t until the 1880s that Kingston was turned into the concentration of people belonging to different classes. From that time, the English emigrants chosen British names for here’s streets and alleys, including Kingston Market.

The beginning of the 20th century, those early the English colonists, once flush, began moving to a more spacious new residence, But Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe started to move in here. Different from the mainstream store sales, they began to follow their traditional, running their stalls in the front and at the back of their house. From the 1920s to the 1950s, eighty per cent of Jewish in Toronto clustered in Kingston Market.

Meanwhile Kingston Market began to be very avantgarde, which has been proved by the female nude models hung on houses.

The street of Kingston Market is not long, it is basically a Z-shaped block, shops, coffee shops, greengrocers, fish store, butcher shop one by one, murals filled the streets, a color grassy car still parked at street junctions, I estimate it won’t drive through the red light.

It is said that there are too many east Europeans here, once again meet by chance, the young couple has distinctive and attractive temperament, I’m absolutely confident that they must have come from Eastern European States.

I walk around in the streets, photographing, I go into a corner store. After one hour, I notice there are more people on the streets.

Colorful walls, colorful pumpkins, people of all races

A fantastic love story on the wall.

Their love story in the street.

A picture of the multiracial street life in Toronto.

The electric theatre has opened so early.

The devil stands at a store doorway, a timid person must be scared off.

The singer’s exaggerated facial expressions and her great hand.

Colorful graffiti art painted on the walls is very exciting.

Toronto mayor is on film, it is said that he is a strong character.

Slanting pumpkins

At the corner of Kingston.

Leaving the nostalgic place, I will pass into Toronto in no time.

The narrow streets, charming Victorian houses, full of graffiti-covered walls, the image I hold in my mind, I always have a feeling that I have a look around Nanluogu Alley in Beijing.

The pentium roaring Niagara Falls in Canada

My visit to Ontario, Canada, Niagara Falls is my most important stop.

Towards the rising sun, I see sunrise filtering through the rising mist at the base of the giant waterfall, Niagara waterfall cascades down in the silvery light.

This picture, the rising mist on the right is Niagara Falls, the waterfall above on the left is American falls. And here, I will tell you a little bit of Niagara Falls, here straddles the border between Ontario and New York, Niagara Falls is located in Canada, American falls is located in America. Niagara Falls is one of the most famous natural landscape in the American continent, the average flow is 5720 cubic meters / sec, Niagara Falls together with Iguazu Falls and Victoria Falls are regarded as three cross-border waterfalls in the world.

The morning fresh air, the green color jumps into my eyes, the song of birds, whether morning exercise people run next to I or run towards me, everybody smiles and nods, say morning. A good mood starts in the early morning, a beautiful day launches from here.

Autumn in Canada is the most alluring, a tall tower in the distance is its landmark Skylon Tower, it rises 775 feet above Niagara Falls, the top-floor revolving restaurant is the best place to see the mighty Niagara Falls.

At last I look the giant waterfall at eye level. The roar continues to echo in my ears, I feel really good emotion.

We happen to pass American falls.

Without question, I prefer Niagara Falls, getting closer and closer to me, the sun has risen.

Formed over the last 12, 000 years by melting glaciers and water erosion, Niagara Falls is marveled at for its great width rather than height, the largest crest stretching 2, 600 feet wide.

I just suddenly reminded of a poem, “it’s torrent dashes down three thousand feet from high, as if the Silver River fell down from azure sky”. No wonder why there is an old saying: “Seeing is believing!”

And then we look back American falls, it measures just 80 meters wide, its weakness is self-evident. Two waterfalls water sources come from the same place. But Only 6 percent of water flow from American falls, the other 94 percent of water flow from Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls, and water plentiful, the water of Niagara Falls appear bright cyan, but the water of American falls appear blue.

The panorama of American falls.

There are many ways to see Niagra Falls. The most common is taking the “maid of the mist” for amazing close – ups, a breathtaking experience of being near Niagara Falls. Besides, there are other ways such as by helicopter, by jet boat, riding on the cableway and so on.

I choose to see Niagara Falls by helicopter. This is our helicopter, a 6-seat helicopter. I can’t remember its type, I know nothing except that it is the quietest helicopter in the world and it is highly secure.

Aha, I see Niagara Falls.

We get closer and closer to Niagara Falls…

We approach the top of Niagara Falls.

I am in luck, on the day when I see Niagara waterfall, it is a warm day, I have a splendid view of a rainbow because of the very good visibility.
