Berries - Yes, they were delicious. There's nothing quite like free food. If only money grew on trees or bushes, I'd be a happier man. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

Toronto - A photo from an alley in Chinatown, Toronto. I am not sure if the security camera is to keep watch on the garbage or the back door. This photo's Flickr Page.

Noise - This is part of the Faculty of Forestry building at the St. George Campus of the University of Toronto. I guess you'd call this some sort of experiment in noise. I like distressed, low resolution , and kind of beat up photos. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

The Space Between - This is a small gap between two buildings on Croft Street, Toronto. I didn't walk down to see what was at the end. This is Croft Street #7, if you are counting. This photo's Flickr Page.

Bouleau - A few trees in North Bay, Ontario. This was a colour digital image converted to black and white with The Gimp. I am a fan of open source software and I think that The Gimp is worth having a serious look at, especially if you can't afford Photoshop. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

Mural - A return to Croft Street. This is one of the best street murals I have seen in the city. I have no idea what it is about or what it refers to, if anything, but I like it. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

Grands Nuages Pelucheux
- The big sky with dark blue and fluffy clouds. I seem to like fluffy clouds. Once again, this photo was not taken in Toronto, so my blog title is increasingly wrong. Perhaps it should be renamed a "Mostly" Toronto Photoblog, or omit Toronto entirely :-) This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

√°rbol oscuro - This was taken in my father's back yard in Fergus, Ontario last week. The original out-of-the-camera photo was a rather boring green tree against a blue sky. I like this better. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

Portello - My old back door taken with my ancient Minolta XG-M. After three shutters and several other repairs, it was retired a few years back. The film was probably Ilford. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

Nipissing - Lake Nipissing under a bright blue sky and fluffy white clouds, sometime last week. I may post a few other photos from North Bay in the coming days. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

Night - OK, so the title is sort of lame and obvious. This was taken on that pedestrian bridge on Dundas Street west at night, clearly. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

I am back after one week away, some of which was spent in North Bay and Fergus.

Ontario: Yours to Discover - Perhaps a better title would have been "parked" or "forgotten", but I like the fact that Ontario's slogan is in plain view on a car left to rot in the woods, not far from the tractor. This photo's Flickr Page.

I am not sure if I will be able to update this blog over the next week, or so. I may have limited access to the web. C'est la vie.

Croft Street #5 - I have a few more photos of Croft Street to go, believe it or not. I have no idea what's going on here. Could be late spring cleaning or an eviction. It's difficult to tell. This photo's Flickr Page.

Metropolis - Just when you thought it was safe...another crane shot. This was taken on Gould Street, near Sam the Record Man on Ryerson's campus. The Metropolis Centre has been under construction for seven years, I think. The city expropriated the real estate, erected hoarding, ripped down the buildings, and then let the weeds grow for years. It will take at least another year or two to finish it. In the end, we will have retail, the Canadian Songwriter's Hall of Fame, etc. Ryerson has a deal to lease some theatres for classroom use. I should be able to take a long lunch every now and again to catch a film. The bad news is that this building obliterates the view from my office window. This photo's Flickr Page.

Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in - Trees & sky reflected in the Salmon River. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

The entire quotation is:

Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it, but while I drink, I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slips away, but eternity remains. I would drink deeper; fish in the sky whose bottom is pebbly with starts.
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Version - Another view of the Salmon River near Arden, Ontario. Again, I used The Gimp to convert this image to B&W. I like the dramatic, if over-the-top-results on this one. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments)

Photoblogs I Like, Part 2: Photojunkie.ca. Someone recently described Rannie Turingan as the "king pin" of Toronto Photoblogging. That is a very apt description. He is the centre of photoblogging in Toronto and is the man behind several Flickr groups, the Toronto Area Photoblogs, and GTA Bloggers, and others. All things photoblogging-related seem to end up back at Rannie.

I like his blog for the photography, of course, but also for the other content, like his discussions about new technology, his Quick Links to interesting sites, and his Hotshots, which link to some of his recent fav photos on photoblogs. Visit Rannie at Photojunkie.ca and at Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/photojunkie/.

"Tin Roof, Rusted" - This photo was taken on the Leslie Street Spit (or Leslie Spit) in Toronto a few years back. Oddly, I have never been back, so I have no idea if this shack is still standing. I have no idea what it's purpose is or was. This photo's Flickr Page.

The Right Bank - The Salmon River, again, through the trees in the right bank. Again, I liked the black and white version much better than the colour, but that is generally true for me. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

Salmon River - I like reflection photos, and I think this is a good one. The black and white looked more appealing to me than colour. This was taken from a bridge spanning the Salmon River. If you follow the link to Flickr, you can see the whole photo without scrolling. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

No Dumping - I love this photo. Maybe it's the ugly green furniture, the abandoned mattress, the ratty garage door, or the fact that there are two no dumping signs near stuff that has been dumped, even if by the property owner. This was taken on Croft Street. I think this is the fourth Croft Street photo that I have posted. It is an interesting street, but really a laneway. It is a bit unusual because it is wider than a typical Toronto lane, paved, and there are a small number of houses whose front doors are on this street. This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

Barn - Back to Arden. This barn is a stone's throw from the Salmon River. It's in pretty good shape, compared with some other barns I have seen. Why are there so many barns in southern Ontario that look like they are about to collapse? This photo's Flickr Page (with comments).

BBQ
- I snapped this photo in Chinatown, on Spadina Ave, south of College a couple of days ago. I think the man in the white apron objected to this and he approached the window to see what I was up to. I am not sure, but he seemed displeased. This image reminds me, of course, of my pig head photo. This photo's Flickr Page.

Antique - I will post some photos from my trip to the Salmon River, near Arden, Ontario, over the next few days. I risked serious injury in getting this shot. I was unsure of the prevalence of poison ivy but, perhaps even more threatening, were swarms of mosquitoes and other biting insects. I got at least three mosquito bites and one rather painful deer fly bite from an especially ferocious and tenacious member of the Family Tabanidae. He flew away with a large chunk of flesh, and them rested somewhere to enjoy it. Anyway, here is a tractor left to rot in the woods. This photo's Flickr Page.
