Like an idiot, I decided to leave the primary trail this afternoon for a quiet scenic trail. It was idiotic because this unused part of the trail was essentially a sheet of ice, but I didn't realize it until it was too late. As I slid helplessly on my side
Here's a shot I just took in Mississauga by Lakefront Promenade Park overlooking Lake Ontario. The trails are bone dry and it's not too cold, making it pretty ideal for cycling.
It was such an amazingly sunny and warm October day, I had to hop off my bike and take a picture.
This was Lake Ontario this afternoon.
A beautiful windy weekend by the lake.
We spent the afternoon in Erin, Ontario visiting Boot Hill Automotive Resurrection and taking in their annual car show. Here's a 1939 LaSalle. If you'd like to see more photos from the day, they're here in this Flickr album.
I spotted this protest banner hanging over Lake Shore Blvd West by Palais Royale during a bike ride with the kids this afternoon. It reads "BLACK LIVES STILL MATTER #DONTSHOOT".
I used to frequent Ward and Patch, a sporting goods store on Annette just east of Jane. It closed a few years ago, and is now a hardware store, but in the back alley you can still find an old Ward and Patch sign.
For a couple of weeks every May, whimbrels migrate through Toronto in great numbers. One of the best places to see them is the appropriately named Whimbrel Point in Sam Smith Park.
I pass these guys every day on my bike ride. This time, I decided to stop and take a photo.
Fear not, GTA... warmer weather is coming...
My wife took this photo in the middle of Jarvis's first night at home.
I snapped this photo on Sunday durng my flight from Frankfurt to Toronto. I really like how it turned out. By the way, when I checked the big departures board at the Frankfurt airport, they listed my destination as Soronto.
I snapped this picture today at Cliff Lumsden Park during a great bike ride on a chilly December afternoon in Toronto. Cliff Lumsden Park offers one of the greatest views of Toronto's skyline. View Larger Map
Yesterday was a great day for a walk and to see how Etienne Brule Park survived the ice storm. Here are a few pictures I took from a perfect day.
While walking along the Humber River in Etienne Brule Park I saw someone had affixed a Christmas wreath to a tree. It looked awfully festive surrounded by nature so I thought I'd take a pic.
I enjoyed an excellent meal with wonderful friends last night in the Distillery District. Afterwards, I felt like a kid again running in the cold surrounded by the giant Christmas tree and festive lights. It was my first visit to the Distillery District since getting married there this past summer.
While biking west on the Colonel Samuel Smith Park trial, I had to get off my bike and snap this photo of the sun peaking through and reflecting off the newly frozen ice.
No, not basketball players, but dinosaurs were roaming Yonge Street during Buskerfest. They walked the street complete with Jurassic Park sound effects and it was a pretty cool sight to see.
Yesterday afternoon, I found myself walking in downtown Mississauga and cut through Celebration Square. I was surprised to find beautiful, lush, fake grass. For a little perspective, here's what Celebration Square looks like with this artificial turf.
During Doors Open Toronto this morning, I popped into the Masonic Temple on Annette Street just west of Keele and snapped this picture of the ceiling.
I snapped this rusty old Dodge right outside my upcoming wedding venue in the historic distillery district.
The kids and I spent a good chunk of this beautiful afternoon playing ball at Sorauren Park in Parkdale. That's where I found this old linseed factory. There's actually a pretty cool plan for a Town Square to completely revitalize this space. I thought I'd grab a picture of the
I spotted this cool fort during a walk along the Humber River in Ettienne Brule Park.
A younger, more ambitious Mike wanted to take a photo every day and share it here. That lasted about two weeks. A more mature, realistic Mike will now find beauty in the ordinary once in a while. I found it yesterday while walking in Lowville Park in Burlington on a
