Another photo from a Saturday afternoon walk in my 'hood. This lone railway car has been parked on the tracks near Wallace Ave. for the past few weeks, and it occasionally gets moved around. Looks like it's being used to store things for some of the ongoing track work in the area.
This was also an excuse to play with my wide angle lens (Canon EF-S 10-22mm) again, as I haven't used it in a while.
Good advice on a door behind Moloney Electric on Sterling Rd. Although this week we're mainly trying to keep the heat out. Photo taken 2010-05-15.
Totally unrelated: Yesterday's picture on shorpy.com was awesome, Scooter Sk8rs: 1922
I've been slacking with the "daily" photo posts for the last couple of weeks. I've had a few times during this daily posting experiment where I've fallen behind on the photo posts, but managed to catch up, but this time I let it slide.
It's a bit of a hassle to post something daily, and frankly, it's not necessarily high quality. I'll try to keep posting frequently, but probably not daily.
The next few photos will be from a walk I took around the neighbourhood (what a surprise, eh?) . This one is from the back of Moloney Electric on Sterling Rd. May 15, 2010.
I was walking down the West Toronto Railpath on Sunday when I spotted this dinosaur looking at me over the fence of Solways, a scrap metal recycler / dealer.
I guess it's better than having a guard dog.
Bruce Ward was the leader of the Junction Triangle Jane's Walk a couple of weekends ago. As we toured the neighbourhood, Bruce (and some other people) spoke about various interesting bits along the way.
Last weekend's Junction Triangle Jane's Walk, on the West Toronto Railpath south of Bloor St.
This photo had poor colour, some fuzzy focus, and some haloing issues due to the lens filter and sunlight. I tried making it black and white, and thought it looked much better that way.
Speaking of the Railpath: Check out this "Then and Now" photo set I posted over on the Junction Triangle website.
Sunday May 2, 2010. Near the start of last weekend's Jane's Walk through the Junction Triangle neighbourhood in west Toronto. Walking west along Wallace Ave., crossing the tracks into the triangle.
Another photo from last weekend's "Railpath Ramble" Jane's Walk. Taken on the West Toronto Railpath near Wallace Ave.
