Winters Face

February 18, 2014 in Out & About, Toronto by Brian Rome

The Winter of 2013/14 has been one that we soon won’t forget. The cold has been as low as -31C without wind chill. The snow has stayed where as other years alot would melt before another snow storm happened. Well the week before christmas Southern Ontario got the storm of the ages. We had snow, cold temps and alot of ice. Most areas were without power. Power outages were from a few hours to as long as 8 / 10 days. But through all that the photography was amazing. Seeing ice on the power lines and trees that brought an incredible amount of weight down and the potential of more power outages.

Another Walk With Larry

February 17, 2014 in Around Town, Toronto by Brian Rome

I love getting out with my camera! I bring my camera into work most days and scour the neighborhoods of downtown Toronto for the next photographic gem.

And most Thursdays I get out with my friend Larry. We have our cameras and of course lots of conversation.

Lately it’s been about making arrangements for our first big photo trip of the year a return trip to Camp Bison. But for for this weeks walk we decided to walk over to the Don River, south of Queen Street and head south. It’s a path used by joggers, walkers and bicyclists.

In fact a winter cyclist passed us trying to maneuver around us with out falling. This end of the path runs along with the new condo construction that is first meant as an athlete village for the upcoming Pan-Am games.
