Toronto back alleys pt 7

This one's really more like Toronto back yards.

I enjoy drawing in all the wires, cable-boxes, satelite dishes, pipes and antennaes that sprout out of downtown homes. To me, these back yards and alleys are natural places. They seem to evolve slowly and in unexpected ways - a new rooftop deck here, a new addition to the kitchen there (maybe with some aluminum siding and a rebuilt laundry pole) -- it all seems very organic. Its in sharp contrast to all the giant waterfront condos and preplanned communities going up around Toronto lately.
