    Very cool town. I'm really excited about getting up this summer!

    Wearing uggs in 90 degree weather....what's up with that?
    That would be a perfect example of style over substance and perhaps form before function . . . like the guy i saw on saturday (95F/35C) walking out of a pizza shop wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. When he got halflway down the block he put his hood up.
    Indeed you can usually tell when the concepts of democracy and citizenship are weakening. There is an increase in the role of charity and in the worship of volunteerism. These represent the élite citizen's imitation of noblesse oblige; that is, of pretending to be aristocrats or oligarchs, as opposed to being citizens.

    Great Shots!

    Thanks for the beautiful and vivid imagery. I haven't been to T.O. since 71; your shots make me want to jump on a plane and go there!

    Best pics I've ever seen of the city in my life. It truly brings out the vibrancy of the city.



    When I first saw this one, then I knew this was not the usual Toronto photo thread

    Great pics! Makes me even prouder to call Toronto home!

    BTW - look at how many balconies have that crappy generic white patio furniture!
