Happy Birthday Toronto

Today my fair city turns 175 years old. I have vague memories of 150, and I imagine 200 will be a big deal.

I could write a bunch of reasons why I love it here, or why there is nowhere else I'd want to live. Instead, I'll just link.


and here.

The real beauty of those lists? I've discovered even MORE things I need to check out here.

But first I'll get some older ones out of the way. I think I'll go to the ROM this weekend. Maybe squeeze in the AGO too. Rumours abound about perhaps wandering around taking pictures during Eh-Vegas... but that may depend on how cold it gets. Just make sure I get my ass out the door more often come Spring and Summer and Fall, k?

Here's another link... Toronto in 1834. I recommend the zoomable coloured map, especially if you know the city.

I love my city.

Too cold to shoot?

Naw, looking like -1 or -2 C (so.. 30 F?). Or Tropical where you come from. As long as it's dry, shouldn't be a problem. Also, they can't get the weather right for the same day, let along a week in advance.
