Here’s a tune I’ve been working on for a few weeks. Sort of a synthesis of several old themes from the 70s. With a new twist. The image is Toronto downtown 1972. Looks quite different now.
Toronto is building a new Light Rail Transit running partly above partly below ground. The noise and drilling has been manageable but not much fun. Traffic, already atrocious, is seriously affected.
This was taken today, steps away from where I live.
Took my Mom down to Cherry Beach tonight. Totally different experience from the last time I went. No traffic. Nice people at the beach. All round good time. This shot taken driving home, just beside inlets around Lake Ontario. No “scream” traffic like last time!
Here’s another one I took while stuck in traffic. The women’s faces are a little bit blurry in the original. But I had to increase the blur to meet the standards of, say, Google Street view. Too bad. It’s actually more interesting if you can make out their features just a little bit.
I have no idea what those two blue dots are. They’re in the original photo.
Last night I made the hair-brained decision to go to Cherry Beach for sunset. The traffic was unbelievable. With our population explosion this city is almost non-functional except during the off hours. Anyhow, I made it. And managed to get this interesting photo, which I digitally recomposed with Photoshop Elements to give something of The Scream effect.
