Belly Dancing for Life

Took my Mom to the park last night for a walk. We stumbled upon this gala event! I took a lot more pics of the crowd to demonstrate Toronto’s amazing multiculturalism, but one person gave me a bit of a dirty look, and it got me thinking. I’d love to post them but don’t want […]

I got out of the city yesterday, stopped here at Tim Hortons for some eats and coffee. Really nice spot, out in the middle of nowhere. Listened to Hank Williams Sr. for the entire trip… For those outside of Canada, that’s a Canadian Tire gas station outside, lights mingling with those inside.

back to nature (?)

Irony intended. Every time I go to this park, really a ravine that runs thru the city, I laugh (or grimace, depending on the day) at all the signs! Not only that, the park workers have color coded their spray paints and ribbons, I guess indicating what type of work has to be done. So […]

I was in the park today. Took this photo and later realized that I had more on the left than the right. I could have cropped it but liked the shadows and greenery. So I got creative and added the right sidebar to try to balance it. That didn’t work, so I loaded it into […]

Evening Star and Sunset

I got another chance to get out of the city last night. A beautiful sunset and star-rise. Is that a word? This is one of my favorite getaways because I can get there and back home within a few hours and, as you can see, almost nobody is there. Especially at this time of year. […]

tulips, a photo by earthpages on Flickr. This pic was one of a series taken last weekend at Edwards Gardens, Toronto. It’s a nice park, full of newlyweds getting wedding pics, etc. I used another pic from the same series for my blog banner.

Life is MORE than a highway…

Just discovered this video. The driver seems to be coming into the city from the country, but for me it really captures hitting the highway, headed for the country away from the city. Once I get past the heavy traffic and can relax a bit, it’s time to crank up the Ibiza and open the […]
