Photo: It's Blossoms and Brutalism Time

credit: Cherry Blossoms at Toronto's Robarts Library

I am rather fond of the Robarts Library in Toronto. I have happy memories of chaining myself to its doors when it opened, in our successful campaign for undergrad stack access. But I absolutely love it every spring when the cherry blossoms burst out, and have returned every year for a decade to capture these blossoms and brutalism.
