Sunny Days Downtown Aurora, Driving on Yonge Street, Sunset Light

Yonge Street downtown Aurora feels different when the sun shines from one side at the sunset, and from other at the sunrise. Yet, one day, I am on the mission to catch the sunny day moment in the mid-day. My second visit to the site where the Old Library was standing. Different views opened up. No more brown accents in the area. Less shadows. It’s brighter here now. We were visiting Aurora Public Library and I don’t have much of good things to say about the parking lot. No pot holes yet, but it is so wavy that I wonder if we may end up with sink holes instead. It is not looking good.

The clock tower roof, where pigeons gather, is new. I mentioned that before. The tower itself is looking good. Standing tall and the clock is ticking.

Now, we are heading North on Yonge Street, the view is overpowered with two residential developments on each side, just North of Wellington Street East. I am getting used to the view.

The sun blasted condo on the East Side of Yonge Street, probably overshadowing others on the back, is almost complete. The residential units on the West side of Yonge Street are in the process of being bricked. Some other, smaller buildings, now starting to look out of place.

This is where people on the West side of the Yonge Street will be saying Hello soon to the people on the East side of the Yonge Street.

Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church and the Horton Place, currently State Farm, are in the view here.

Who is that? A random person walking by, North on Yonge Street. Maybe one day he will recognize himself on this picture. Or, perhaps he never will, just like many people photographed on the old pictures of Aurora.
