Towers In the Trees

This shot really gives you a good idea of the huge number of trees in Toronto. Those apartment towers are on a busy main street in the north west part of town but from this angle look like they are in a forest. I've always liked them - they were designed by Uno Prii and built in 1969. I am a great fan of the quirky towers he designed here. Check out my label below to see more of them.

Being Nice

I spotted this poster for Roots (the clothing store) and had a good chuckle about it. This year is the 150th year since the Confederation of Canada and there will be parties and events all year and I like Roots idea of celebrating the fact of our reputation for being nice. Only when I saw the pic on my computer did I read the ad for No Frills grocery store which is also a good one!

Not Extinct Yet!

I spotted this payphone a week ago and it looks relatively new so they are not totally extinct yet. I wonder how much use it gets though.

Drive By

I caught this pic of the mural as I was stopped at a red light and quickly pulled out my camera. I think it is one of my favourite decorated utility boxes with that cute bird and all the nice trees behind it.

Looking At UP

This train is one of the UP Express trains that run from Union Station in downtown Toronto to Toronto Pearson International Airport. They claim a total time of 25 minutes for the ride and you don't have to worry about traffic jams. The trains have been running since 2015 but I have yet to try one.

Lazing In The Sun

You know the weather is finally warming up when you spot the turtles at Wychwood Park out on their log catching some warm rays. They are getting to be a good size!

After The Storm

We had some bad rain storms a couple of weeks ago and I caught this sky just after the rain had stopped and before the next band of clouds that you can see in the distance moved in. The planes were taking advantage of the break to finally land at the airport. You can see raindrops still on the window when I took this one.
