Something to be proud of in Toronto

Rest assured there will be no F@rd content here; he’s a disgrace and a shameful example of everything we should strive to avoid. Instead I’ll simply say that I’m proud Toronto has a respectful culture that celebrates diversity… welcome to Pride Week in Toronto! There will be much celebrating and a group wedding like this …

Cold Again… Glad It Wasn’t 6 Days This Time!

I thought the ice storm was enough, thank you very much. And Mother Nature seems to be ok with that; while we’ve had some exceptionally cold weather we haven’t had outages and problems as the result of it. Here’s hoping it stays that way, I know there are some storms and weather watches happening along …

A Week of Suspended Anticipation

Every time we’ve left the house, coming back held a little glimmer of hope that the power would be back on. Only to disappoint us. Yesterday was no different. A week is a long time to stay in a state of suspended anticipation. Like the tree branches encased in ice, we are frozen in the …

Day 5

This will be my 201st post to the blog since starting it in 2011. Usually my multi-post threads are related to a trip, this thread is more of an “adventure” since it all takes place in the same location… The Toronto Hydro twitter feed tells me how hard the crews have been working for the …

My View

Looking east toward downtown Toronto, getting to watch as plane take off and land. I’ve spent time in the area when the Midweek club was holding their criterium series on Tuesday nights (and while I was still racing). Now I’m seeing it as the folks who’ve worked up in that area (known as Creekside) have …

5 Photographers, opening reception

Well! What an evening that was! I don’t know how many people came to the reception at Leonardo Galleries, I do know that the two hours flew by chatting with folks. There wasn’t enough time to be able to talk to everyone and I do apologize if I didn’t have a chance to chat with …

My first: gallery exhibit

I’ll wrap up this trilogy with a post about something I’ve thought about for a while and am thrilled to see actually come together. On May the 10th, 2012 an exhibition entitled “5 Photographers” opens at Leonardo Galleries in Toronto. With a 2 week run during the CONTACT photography festival, an opening reception from 6PM …

A film festival submission; another first

Many (over 30?) years ago I submitted a photo to an exhibit and contest in Guelph Ontario… they were reluctant to accept it as it wasn’t framed. In the end they did. And they awarded it first place… with the proceeds I framed it (there were only two prints made from this image and I …

2012 Canadian Hillman Prize Awarded

Tonight was the presentation of the second Canadian Hillman Prize, an honour bestowed on journalists for their integrity and determination in delivering messages that aren’t always easy to accept. The prize is well earned and has a deep pool of previous recipients. In Canada though, it’s fairly new and is largely due to the efforts …
