The Starbucks Experience

I recently discovered (upon using a coupon for a free "Christmas Blend" coffee) that the smallest size coffee at Starbucks is called "tall".

Quality Time with Fido

Sadly, it's quality time with Fido the cellphone provider, not Fido her animal companion.

The Conversation

I have no idea who she is. I just saw her at a bar engrossed in this conversation. Snapped this one and liked how it turned out! Hope you do, too.

As I don't post on weekends, let me take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Hannukah!

The Placard

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, n how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before theyre forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind,
The answer is blowin in the wind.

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, n how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, n how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind,
The answer is blowin in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist
Before its washed to the sea?
Yes, n how many years can some people exist
Before theyre allowed to be free?
Yes, n how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesnt see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind,
The answer is blowin in the wind.

Jolly Joggers

Why are these people so happy? As one who has always disliked running, I have no idea, but I must say, they really brightened up my Saturday morning!

Long Wait in the Snow

Waiting for the bus is not much fun at the best of times. While hardly a major snowstorm, this was the first snow to stay on the ground this year. Taken on Yonge, facing south at Eglinton, Toronto.

Dressed for the Weather

Tigra shows that one can dress both seasonally and stylishly, giving no quarters to either functionality or great looks! (spotted with her servant near Yonge and Eglinton here in Toronto)

Do You Think This Was Her Idea?

Taken on a balmy early autumn Car Free Sunday in Kensington Market (one of my favourite places to shoot in Toronto).

"I need to know right now..."

"...does Uncle Phil have a Buddha, and is it appropriate to give one for Christmas?"
