Lady of the Lake

birds 054

The Lady of the Lake stands surrounded by flying geese at Spencer Smith Park by Lake Ontario. She has been there since 1973 and recently underwent a complete restoration. On this day she is also enshrouded in fog which is enhanced by the pin hole setting.

in the dead of winter time

rochester

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure in the landscape -
the loneliness of it - the dead feeling of winter.
Something waits beneath it - the whole story doesn't show.

Pape & Gerrard

overpass This heavy duty pedestrian overpass connects the two dead ends of Pape Ave created by the CNR tracks that slice right through the street. Top view is from the west side with the setting sun and looking south. Bottom view is from half way up the ramp looking north on the east side. Between the tree branches, you can just barely see another small bridge that leads to the apartment building on the right.gerrard st

V is for Viaduct

plaque

The Prince Edward Viaduct is never called by its official name, it is more commonly called The Bloor [Street] Viaduct, or simply, The Viaduct. This is the dividing line between the east end of the city and the downtown area. If you have read Michael Ondaatje’s book, In the Skin of the Lion, this is the bridge that is the background to the story.viaduct

In memory of the voice of City. Mark Dailey, a tv anchor, reporter, and announcer passed away on Dec 6th. His distinctive and entertaining voice defined Citytv, and Toronto, for over 30 years. This “breaking news” car bursts out of the old CHUM/City Building.

T is for Tall Ships in Toronto

Toronto 136

I took so many pictures of these Tall Ships when they were in Toronto last July… here is another view of two of them, with two other smaller boats for a size comparison, just in case you were in any doubt about their tallness!
