I like the angles of the arches against the building and the way the ghost skaters whiz by.

This is Trinity Bellwoods park, between Queen and Dundas streets. I used to live near there and this park is one of the few things I miss from that neighbourhood. It's a large park with lots of trees and you can really feel like you are out of the city for a few minutes as you stroll through.
I live near Dufferin Grove park now. That one is a bit smaller and it's elevated so you can always see and hear the Dufferin Street traffic. It's still a nice park. I'm glad it's right on my way to the library so I walk through it a couple of times a week.
I took this photo at dusk and modified it with Picasa, which is Google's image software. I wanted to take a lot more photos but it was raining and I was on my way to a friend's house for dinner.

This is on College Street. Fall is my favourite time to walk around the campus. It's full of trees and a lot of the ivy also changes colors so you get this neon orange ivy at the right time of the year.

I love the colors in this photo. They remind me of the way photos from the early 70s look. The wires look almost like part of a spiderweb. It's a great representation of Toronto's busy urban core.

This is Toronto city hall, also known as New Toronto city hall. I don't really like it much. It's one of those modern, modern buidings that tries too hard. It looks cold and standoffish when I think a lot of Toronto's charm is the older brick and stone buildings from a century ago. It looks cold to me.
In the summer there is a farmer's market held here and in winter, as you can see in the photo, there is ice skating. Sometimes bands play there on temporary stages. It reminds me a lot of Justin Herman plaza in San Francisco.
