I was at the WaterWorks this evening getting ready to take Dudley for a walk and I saw this guy climb up on the railing. At first I thought he might be getting ready to jump into the lake but he slowly stood up on the rail and spent a good 5-10 minutes walking along the handrail demonstrating amazing balance. Should he have slipped, it's about a 20-30 foot drop into a chilly Lake Ontario on the other side but he never came close.

I spent part of the day spelunking through the Ashbridges Treatment Plant with Frank Lemire, William Self and Alan Hindle. It was great to tour the facility with a group and to see what caught everyone's eye and the images captured. Check out their individual sites to see more and click the big button below to see my photos so far from this second visit. It was a great day and many thanks to Plant Technician, David Dickson as well as Hassan for the tour and hospitality (and to David for taking this shot).

All this month (and held over through July) at Voulez-Vous Café, an exhibition of photographs with water as a common theme. I tend to gravitate towards images with water, whether it's a rainy view through a windshield, a reflection on the lake, or a foggy day at the beach. Drop by 1560 Queen Street East to grab an espresso, enjoy the local vibe, and view the collection or click the following button for a virtual visit:

I had an amazing opportunity to tour the inside of Pumping Station "T" (and much more) thanks to a generous offer by Plant Technician, David Dickson who spotted my That Building set on flickr. In this shot, I'm standing near the underground base of the pumphouse looking way up at the roof (I'm guessing it would be 6-7 stories from top to bottom). David was a great tour guide and provided much fascinating history and stats about the facility. It's an impressive plant that is obviously run with pride while striving to be a good neighbour. I'll be posting more photos here as I sort through them. Many thanks to David for his time, patience and for making my day.
