Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Saturday, April 29, 2017

I spend way too much time on the TTC, but it sure beats sitting in the traffic above ground. Which brings me to more horrors along the Union Station stop. I swear, the artist behind them must hate humans. The people are usually so bowed and defeated looking. I'm puzzled why they were picked:

No happiness for you

 

I call this one “Happiness is two cars over”. Bleak, depression and mind numbing. I caught a cool reflection in the one on the right, which makes the photo a bit more interesting. Otherwise meh.

Then we have the two at the far end of the platform:

unhappy pair - ttc art

Mr and Mrs Thundercloud.  They could be pensive, or tired. But I've noticed a real trend with the artwork on the TTC - everyone looks loaded down with worries.

This one isn’t bad.

Artwork on the TTC - I have to pee.

The kid simply looks bored or eager to get off because he has to pee.  Take your pick.

In a city brimming with talent, they should have picked something that doesn’t evoke such negative emotions.
