Saturday's Photo Hunting

I'm posting at Keyhole Pictures today and the topic is IN A PARK.

A friend and I went photo shooting this week in Toronto and came upon this statue of a poet, Al Purdy in a park.

Alfred Wellington Purdy, (December 30, 1918 – April 21, 2000) was one of the most popular and important Canadian poets of the 20th century. Purdy's writing career spanned more than fifty years. His works include over thirty books of poetry; a novel; two volumes of memoirs and four books of correspondence. He has been called the nation's "unofficial poet laureate" and "a national poet in a way that you only find occasionally in the life of a culture."

  1. Al's statue looks like he's admiring a view out in the park. :)
