Birds-eye view of Jane's three Jack Russells. Posted by Picasa

My son David took this shot up on Manitoulin Island. A bit funny but a bit sad too. Makes you wonder about the dreams that fell apart with the house. Posted by Picasa

I wonder how Katerina is doing. It's been over a year since she visited Canada from Denmark. She had so much energy.. Posted by Picasa

She bounced right out of the shot. Posted by Picasa

By the pond. This is what photographers do on their days off. Since we always carry our cameras, who can resist taking quirky shots of random weddings? Posted by Picasa

Every once in a while there's nothing quite like sitting in some civic garden and watching the circus unfold. Wedding after wedding coming through and battling for territory. Very entertaining. Posted by Picasa

Blue installation on Queen near Dufferin. About 25 feet tall. Interesting. Posted by Picasa

Anyway, the reason for the foray to Queen and Spadina was to pick up some more of our favourite street art. This is Mike Parsons, and he definitely does not belong on the sidewalk. His work should be on gallery walls and your walls. Go down to Queen Street east of Spadina and find Mike. Check out his stuff, he's so amazing. Posted by Picasa

Perfect end to a perfect evening. Here's a spot I hope you never find yourself. The impound lot under the Gardiner at York St. I've lived in this city my whole life and this is the first and last time I've ever had my car towed. Expensive lesson. Do not park illegally anywhere around Queen and Spadina, especially Peter Street. You'll get towed too.

Is this blog becoming a record of my pigging out? Dinner at Fresh on Queen at Crawford. Posted by Picasa

After trying to get some half decent shots (of the hospital building) to use for a collage for the Toronto Police Mounted unit calendar for Sick Kids Hospital, we stopped for lunch down the street at my favourite restaurant the King's Cafe in Kensington Market.  Posted by Picasa

Here's the funniest thing about shooting in Toronto. If you're in New York City and taking photographs on the street, people either ignore you completely or put their hand up to block your shot or some variation on the theme.In this city when you're trying to get a shot of anonymous city dwellers scooting past in a blur or whatever, people are so darn polite they will either stop and wait till you're done taking the picture or duck down like this guy so as not to ruin your shot. Funny. Posted by Picasa
