Better Late Than Never

I took down my exhibit at City Hall today. It was suppose to run for two months but ran a tad longer with scheduling conflicts and vacations (which was all good). I was happy to have a collection of streetcar photographs up on Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon's office walls while City Hall debated the direction of Toronto transit.  It seemed fitting that the exhibit came down on the same day that a vote to proceed with a light rail plan was successfully passed and I can now remove my "damn streetcars". Thankfully, there are some great people at City Hall trying to work together to come up with thoughtful fact-based transit solutions to make the city a better place to live in. My hat is off to MMM and the rest of the rational bunch for their perseverance and dedication.  There must be days where they wonder what the heck they signed up for.

Will model for dog food...

I take my dog on most photo walks or rather, I take my camera along when I walk the dog. Subsequently, Dudley is extremely well documented and provides foreground fodder for many photos. He doesn't like getting his picture taken and is often trying to ignore me or look in another direction like he is in this shot taken at Ashbridges Bay.  Overall though, it works out okay as he gets to go to the beach and I get a cheap model.
