Something about the texture of this stone wall really attracted me. I think it's even better in black and white! Does a wall count as a fence? I hope so! For more fences, visit Friday Fences.
The golf season has officially begun here in Toronto! I kicked off the year with a new golf league at the Cardinal course. It was a fun outing, especially since I won the longest drive competition. Let's hope the warm weather is (finally) here to stay so we can take full advantage of the season. For more signs, take a look at Signs, Signs.
I thought it was time to start the voyage into the summer, but we've got snow in the forecast for today! What's happening Canada? Please someone, send some warm weather our way!
It seems I'm not the only one enjoying this great spring weather! For more skies, visit Skywatch!
This shot may not look super-springy, but warm weather has finally made it's way to the cold tundra of Toronto! The trees are a little bare yet, but just look at that wonderful green grass.
Target stores are a common sight for those of you in the US, but the stores have just recently expanded into Canadian territory much to the excitement of my compatriots. Although it's nice to have the stores closer to home, they still don't feel the same as US Targets to me. Perhaps it's a bit of homesickness. For more signs, take a look at Signs, Signs.
Spring seems to be having trouble starting up here in Toronto. This lone little tree is the only sign of something living I've seen. The trees in my neighborhood are still bare, my tulips haven't sprung and things are just generally pretty bleak. It's supposed to warm up this weekend, let's hope that brings some life to this city!
Sorry I've been a bit out of commission lately, but the (fairly) new job is still keeping me quite busy. Since I haven't had much time to shoot anything new, here's a look at some benches outside a fast food joint in Niagara Falls. I love the bright red of those benches. But the best part of this photo is the fake owl on the upper left corner to keep the pigeons at bay. For more red, visit Ruby Tuesday.
PS: I've been posting more regularly on my Travel Blog as I've got plenty of new shots to showcase over there. Please stop by and take a look.
Another look at the beautiful scenery of the Kwartha Lakes. Too bad I didn't have a chance to get back there this winter. Since we had more snow this year, I bet it was even better!
Ice fishing and ATVing are big winter passtimes up here in the cold north. You actually need a fishing license for ice fishing, even though most people throw their catches back. So instead of fishing myself, I watched others fish. It's quite the scientific pursuit and many of those huts are really decked out inside. These shots were taken last February in the Kawartha Lakes, but since we're getting more snow - it might as well be now! Hope your week is off to a less snowy start.
Happy Friday everyone! Hope you've got an action-packed weekend planned. We had a short warm spell in Toronto this past week, but it's turned cold again. Maybe an indoor driving range is in order? Have fun!
I went to a Raptors basketball game this past weekend. It was a great game with lots of action which the Raptors won by a slim margin in the last minutes! But I always love seeing the dancers work it during the halftime and commercial breaks and let me tell you, those Raptor girls can move! For more red, take a look at Ruby Tuesday.
A lot of the snow melted this weekend, so spring might actually be around the corner, even in Canada! Maybe it's a good time to start digging out the canoes and other spring/summer items. I actually caught this scene last year near the Kawartha Lakes. Hope your Monday is off to a good start, my company moved office locations so it should be an interesting first day in our new building for me. For more bright colors to keep you cheered head to Mellow Yellow Monday.
Another look at last week's snowfall. As you can see, the snow plow pushes the white stuff into a big wall, sometimes making it hard to get out of your own home! Hope you've got a great weekend planned. I'm hoping mine will not include any snow. For more fences, visit Friday Fences.
