If we have a choice about what to come back as, it's a toss up for me. sugar maple or a horse.

an exercise in restraint

(viewed 1016 times)
so the sign outside is seven inches of glass, and the sun is setting and I took a zillion photos. think this is some kind of light reflection mecca. photoshopping it only made it worse.

tomorrow I do my first professional photo gig in many years. I have the art directors instructions memorized. cross your fingers I can change lenses without messing up the camera.

toronto architecture and a new lens

(viewed 1510 times)
one way to perk things up is to try a new lens. bfish suggested I try the 10-22mm, so I have one ($25 until 10:30am Monday) and it is great with architecture, wide landscape, who knows. I am in learning mode.

this is the new architectural treat in toronto, and I really like it. forgive the stairs but they are wonderful. Libeskind, the architect took great pains with details, and the red crystal outside is stunning at sunset.

those leaves keep falling off the trees

(viewed 2158 times)
so I should be gathering nuts?

we've got a lot of leaves left on the trees, and it was 36C yesterday. I am working really hard and having a great time, and lunch means I go take pictures. taking photos, such a great excuse for so much.

Canadian Thanksgiving

(viewed 853 times)
I know Thanksgiving is a North American concept. It comes in October here, and in November in the States.

How about pagan harvest festival?

Best part is eating pie with whipped cream for breakfast, and having it again with a sandwich later. The whole point of the dinner, far as I am concerned, is the sandwich the next day.

Happy Thanksgiving.
