Going to the Toronto Islands is always a treat, with lots to do and see but my favourite part is the view it affords of the city of Toronto especially at night, making it a perfect way to end the day.
For some reason, when you live in a city, you take for granted the very things to which tourists flock. So when I was on Toronto’s Centre Island to play volleyball, I decided to take along my camera gear and stay into the evening hours to do something that I have wanted to do for some time, but haven’t because, well, I live here—take pictures of the beautiful cityscape of Toronto at night.
I have always loved Nikon, ever since I was old enough to notice my father using one to take pictures. And I love Porsche, ever since I first laid eyes on the blur of a ‘whale tail’ 911 Turbo as it roared past me on the autobahn when I was eight. I’ve been able to afford the former, the latter will be forever out of my reach, well almost. When Nikon and Porsche joined together for a photo contest, looking for rooftop design and architecture, it was a contest to good to pass up.
In the first of a three part pictorial on the ice storm of 2013 that hit Ontario, we take a look at some of the destructive effects of the nearly 30mm of freezing rain that fell over the course of twenty four hours.
After finding “economical” parking for $15, I got Kayleigh out of the car and giggling she said, “Wow, look at all the towers. I love Toronto.” A good start.
My wife has always been a Boston Bruin fan so when they made it to the Stanley Cup finals, being the middle of June, we couldn’t stand idly by and watch from the comfort of our own igloo, it was already starting to melt. So we decided to make the trek down to the beautiful city of Boston.
I have never been to Miami Beach before, so on a recent trip to catch a Cruise leaving from Fort Lauderdale, we decided to spend a couple of days at Miami Beach.
