Canada: Toronto, Ontario – Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto

Tuesday, June 18th, 2019

The seat of government is also a fun place for tourists to hang out. Look for people inside the “O”. Look around the square for sculptures: Three-Way Piece No. 2 (The Archer) by Henry Moore, Oscar Nemon’s statue of Sir Winston Churchill and even a Roman column. If you’re looking to park your car, underneath is one of the world’s largest underground parking garages.

Though it first looks kind of like a crystal chandelier, you soon learn that this hanging sculpture is the awful garbage killing the fish in the ocean. It’s in the Ripley’s Aquarium of Toronto.

Fun Trompe d’oeil mural on wall near a dog park in downtown Toronto. So cool that a bride and groom are taking photos here. Maybe they have a doggie? Some of the windows are real. Can you tell which ones?

Italy, Rome: Colonnade St. Peter’s Basilica, Rome

Monday, May 20th, 2019

Have fun looking for the trompe l’oeil Gian Lorenzo Bernini planned in the center of St Peter’s Square. There are 2 semi-circles surrounded by 4 rows of columns. You can see the rows from any place in the piazza except from 2 spots (look for the metal plates in the ground) where the illusion allows you to see only 1 row of columns and not the four.
