Glass sunsets

Following the colors of the sky during one of the warm spring evenings in Toronto. 

 

Walking towards the reflections of the city life visible on the glass facades of several hundred meters high buildings that rise in the central districts of the city. Observing the quiet rhythm of the day during one of the long months of 2020.

The streets are silent, and only once in a while the sound of the unhurried footsteps of a few pedestrians walking along the sidewalks in downtown Toronto can be heard from a distance. The noise of a car slowly passing by is a rare thing to be heard here today somewhere far away.

The peace and tranquility create new outer and inner experiences. It has become easier to notice what is under the surface of everything that we have known but what is not there at the moment.

Walking further down the streets, this slow rhythm of the city life enables you to pause and see the raw core of every element that creates the reality around you - now as you see everything clearly in its most unstructured form. No distractions, no overlapping layers, no hustle and bustle of daily life we all were used to living.

The colors of the buildings blend with the colors of the sky, and the sounds of nature mix with the sounds of the city. The memories of yesterday blend with the dreams of tomorrow, but what matters most is the experience of the present moment. The moment that keeps you awake, curious, and open to making the most of it all - here and now - while strolling amidst the streets illuminated by the evening sun.

Hi, it's Natalia. I'm a visual storyteller who is traveling the world trying to explore like a local. I’m writing about the advantages of slow travel and journeys through Tuscany, Bali, Thailand, Portugal, Canary Islands, Scandinavia and more. I love design and architecture, I like to observe city life behind my camera lens, but it's the time spent somewhere on the road, among nature, that inspires me the most and that's where you'll find me most often.
