I Am Going To Miss This View

We're moving in a week and a half, and the packing has been consuming so much of my time that I had to take a moment to capture the skyline at sunset.  As much as I'm going to miss this view, I will have a whole new area to learn about, to take pictures of, and explore.  I can't wait!

Early evening at Queen and Bay - now (seemingly) the slowest part of the 501-E streetcar route.  Every time I get on the streetcar these days, it seems to take forever to go from here past Yonge Street.

A lovely fall day, on the way in to work.  It was a busy, busy summer, and now I find myself dreading - and also looking forward to - the upcoming winter.  Hopefully, I'll be able to get more time come December 1 to take and post pictures.

Waiting for something outside the convenience store.  I was surprised to see the bag of garbage hanging on the fire hydrant - I haven't seen that since sometime around the garbage strike this summer.

Construction site at King Street West and John Street.  Taken from inside the Tim Horton's across the street.

Part of our photo-walk on Sunday took us by this place, on Gerrard, east of Coxwell - and the signage is awesomely retro - complete with grime and rust stains.  I love old signs, especially when they show their age.

Elvis - Is That You?

Elvis - is that You.jpg

It's been YEARS since I saw an Elvis bust.  My in-laws used to have booze in ceramic Elvis bottles, and I used to see them when I was frequenting the flea markets around Toronto.  But I didn't expect to see one on the edge of someone's driveway, that's for sure.  Oh Elvis - what have they done to you?

Fall Leaves

We took a nice walk around what will become our new neighbourhood, and stopped in at a local park to shoot the foliage.  This weekend has been particularly good for fall colours and falling leaves, and it's a chilly reminder that winter is coming.
