A Tire Swing Story is a bite-sized "imagining" inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I'll discuss writing, life, love, and coffee. (In no particular order and maybe all at once.)

Casual Fridays: Greg and Annie

Hi guys, it's Britt. 
Something pretty cool is happening on the streets of Toronto. When I started this blog, one of my first stories involved a declaration to a woman named Annie, written on the side of a pay phone. This was the photo:

Since then, I have discovered other signs like it around the city.  

I was curious. This prompted me to do a little "googling," and I discovered the culprit is artist, Gregory Alan Elliott. He's also responsible for signs like this: 

 (Enjoy everyone like they're your double rainbows)

 and for little hearts like this: 
It's really a wonderful thing to be trudging through your day and to stumble across one of these random acts of love.    

Make your mark this weekend, story-makers. See you back here on Monday. 

Monday's story will be prompted by a curious pic sent in by the ever-incredible Greg Blanchette. Thanks to everyone who forwarded me their wacky photo discoveries. Look for your shots in upcoming posts. And if you haven't sent me a picture of something you feel is a story in the making, please do. Let's have some fun with this!
Britt
