…a day in the life of – #2 – ……….downtown Toronto……….

I had time between appointments.  So I went for a walk in the heart of downtown Toronto.  This is a constuction site on University Avenue.  There is construction everywhere you turn.

…Looking down University Avenue , a typical Toronto morning, with our famous streetcars and everyone walking with long strides to cross the intersection.


And I walked up to Queen’s Park.  Our provincial legislature building.  It is solid, immense and beautiful.

I visited on an eventful day.  Quiet in the morning when I was there.  But at dinner hour, our Premier of the Province of Ontario, announced his resignation.  You can imagine all the excitement, the media, the jostling and the emotion.

…a day in the life of – #1 – the early drive into downtown Toronto……..

I had a medical appt downtown yesterday morning – early –  the sun was just starting to rise.  Thought I would make the whole thing more enjoyable by bringing my camera and shooting whatever I could.  A day in the life of Jane you could say.

This is on the QEW (Queen Elizabeth Way) heading into downtown.

The second photo is on University, looking north, with the very pretty Canada Life building on the  left.

The drive was quite good, as I left early, but that was just lucky too, because it can jam up for no reason at all.  There were very big winds this morning, gusting up to 60Km an hour.

A very busy day .

All photos taken while stopped in traffic, with the D700 and a 35mm lens.  Just point and shoot.



…I love simple yet pretty sweaters…….

Especially when they have buttons down the front.  I have quite a collection and add more whenever I see one that I like.

This one I purchased the other day on my shopping excursion.  It came from Talbots, yes the tag says it all , and it is made of wool.  Natural fibers is one of my must haves for it to make it into my wardrobe. Lace is still so big this year and this is perfect as an updated sweater.  Of course, I can pair this with almost anything, casual or with classic dress pants.  I do  have a pair of burgundyish dress pants that I plan to wear with this pretty sweater.

Another find that I love that I wanted to share with you.

Have a great Saturday! 🙂


…a new hat……..

I went shopping yesterday afternoon.  Haven’t been to the big mall since the spring.  All sorts of new shops opening, like Tiffany’s .  A new Stuart Weitzman shoe shop, fabulous patent leather shoes – shoe candy!

Please excuse the missing casings etc…undergoing some house renovations that have been in progress for a while.

This is a new hat that I purchased yesterday.  Love leopard. And look at Boucle, he had to be in the shot.  What a sweetie-pie.


….look up……straight up……..

The beginning of my oak tree changing color.  The leaf raking has begun, though it is still just the beginning.

This is the beauty of fall to me.  Walking along the streets and then looking up and seeing the beautiful colors while the leaves are still on the tree.
