I love my wide angle lens...

Hart House is one of my favorite things about U of T. This is the Great Hall where Tonya’s choir (Hart House Singers) performed on Sunday. Searching for Bobby Fisher was filmed here.

Whine

Some wine from the train station LCBO. It’s huge in there. The highlight was the tasting bar.

LCBO

Wow. Summerhill used to be considered the north part of the city.

North Toronto or Summerhill CPR Station. Now it’s an LCBO.

What a great building.

Prime Minster of Ontario

leave a comment »

Almost posted to failblog...

Colin spotted this plaque a while ago. We thought someone had made a typo. Turns out it’s acceptable to call the leader of the province the Prime Minister.

From Wikipedia: “The title of Prime Minister of Ontario, while permissible in English and correct in French (le Premier ministre), is generally avoided in favour of “Premier” to avoid confusion with the Prime Minister of Canada.”

Pillow Fight

leave a comment »

Yonge and Dundas square on March 21 just after 3pm – a whistle blow marks the start of the pillow fight.

There were almost as many photographers as pillow-fighters. I admit to being part of the problem and not the solution.
