Rotting

At the front entrance of the Halton Country Rail Museum are three pretty decrepit busses, waiting for restoration. One was open, so we checked it out. The exterior of the bus can be seen in my second image.

The Subway Tunnel of Memory

Two more images from the rail museum in Halton. In one of the barns they have two old TTC subway cars. I remember riding these models when I first came to Toronto in the early 1980’s. Now they live on in a permanent twilight. Weird, and a bit sad to see them empty.

Riding the Old Streetcar

Yesterday I was at the Halton County Railway Museum, which has a fascinating collection of old transit vehicles. It was fun riding on an old Peter Witt model streetcar!

Reflections From the ROM

The ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) in Toronto has an addition that has been controversial since the day the design was announced years ago; I was in the neighbourhood recently and saw some interesting reflections in the addition.

Four Portraits

When I attended MMPR (the Marshall McLuhan Podcasting Round able) last weekend in Hamilton, I went with one camera: my 80ish year old Leica IIIa. When paired with a Canon Serenar 50mm/1.8 lens it makes for a good portrait combo!

The Former Don Jail

It is so nice to see a former jail become a place of healing (as part of the BridgePoint Health Centre)
