North York Nights – Street Photography

6 Sep

I’m in love with the Yonge and Sheppard/Yonge and Finch area.  I really am, I’ve set up shop here and I really can’t get enough of it, there is so much culture here that you can experience most of the world in less than half an hour.  There really always seems to be something going on and I love to get out and take some of it in,  This past weekend, I got out for a little bit.

Olympic Torch Relay In Toronto

17 Dec

How often does the Olympic torch come through town? Once in a lifetime, I’m told. It’s actually come through three times in my lifetime but only now have I been an the opportunity to capture the moment. Here are some pictures from the Olympic Torch Relay as it passed by Yonge and Sheppard.


Visual Word Of The Day – Stentorian

29 Oct

Stentorian – \sten-TOR-ee-uhn\ , adjective;

1.

Extremely loud.

This is actually a part of an amazing art exhibit located on Leona Dr. in North York. The exhibit is called the Leona Project and it is a part of Toronto International Art Fair. The exhibit is a Biography of the area that has been known as Willowdale, Lansing and Newtonbrook, located in North York. For more information on the Leona Project, please visit the site

I will also post some other pictures from the exhibit, but if you get a chance, you should really see it for yourself before it closes on Saturday. It’s quite the piece of work.

While the Car never really crashed into the window of a small bungalow on Leona Dr. had it, the whole thing would have been a stentorian experience.
