Two Toronto Police mounted officers on the banks of Grenadier Pond in High Park. In the early days of Toronto this was the site of a terrible accident. A troop of British soldiers on horseback tried to cross the frozen pond in winter, fell through the ice and died. Posted by Picasa

Fungi at Boyd Posted by Picasa

I wanted to get the effect of the double canopy at Boyd. The evergreen and the maple. So I lay on my back in the leaves and shot up at the sky. I like the way it looks. Posted by Picasa

Here's Ricardo, looking very photographer-like. Only he never once took out his camera all day long. Tsk. Posted by Picasa

Eglinton Flats. They're re-naturalizing the banks around the pond at the flats. So there's all this snow-fencing to protect the new growth. It looks hideous but I guess it'll be a good thing in the end. Posted by Picasa

Old wall mural in Weston. Love it. The look on the woman's face is like... wow, a 125 dollar diamond ring... next step, the 20,000 dollar house in the suburbs.. Posted by Picasa

This isn't the greatest quality shot but I was so far away and no telephoto lens yesterday. Richard noticed something weird about a trio of ducks. Two of them were mallards and one, I haven't a clue what sort... was following them around like one of the family. It was the sweetest thing. We made up a story about the odd duck being an orphan or a mismatched egg. Maybe it isn't just a story. Posted by Picasa

Why do people feel this compulsion to carve their names into living things? I wish they wouldn't. Get a tattoo instead.  Posted by Picasa

Took a little break from work yesterday and walked through Boyd Convservation Area. The leaves were spectacular in places. This looks unreal, but no, there was a brilliant yellow carpet all down the footpath.. Posted by Picasa
