I love these images. They're so crisp and elegant -- they're like the pineapple salsa of photographs. I wish I could see this place in person!

I had Stendhal syndrome in Taos and Santa Fe! Joked about it with friends later and they were all 'wha?'
Next year add the tiny perfect Textile Museum to your Toronto list, guarantee you will love it.
