The Audience

I recently travelled to Toronto and ended up at the Rogers Centre to do some sightseeing.  I have been to this part of town many times before and yet, I still find myself taking photos of all the different structures in the area.

One particular feature of the surrounding area that has always caught my eye is this sculpture:

As it turns out, this is a sculpture by Michael Snow, called, “The Audience”.  It was installed in 1989 and depicts baseball fans in various states of celebration.

You can find Michael Snow’s work all around Toronto – he is a Toronto native-, even in the Eaton Center.

The Long Road Ahead

It always fascinates me seeing how long some freight trains are.  Some seem to go on for miles and most probably do in some instances.

I always imagine what they may be carrying: Food? Furniture? Cars? Raw materials?  In reality, it could be anything.

Though, I don’t much like freight trains when I’m caught at a crossing, waiting for it to go past.  It can be a long wait.

One Type Down, Many More To Go

I love flying.  I’m an admitted aviation geek.  I’m plane crazy.

When I do get the chance to fly, I always make it a point to see if I can possibly fly a type of aircraft that I have never flown on before.

I have flown on Boeings, Airbuses, Lockheeds, Cessnas, British Aircraft Corporation aircraft, Embraers, and Bombardiers.

In regards to Boeing, I had yet to fly aboard a 737; therefore, when I had a chance to fly aboard one on a recent trip, I was quite pleased.

I always ask for a window seat, of course.

St. Joseph’s By Night

St. Joseph’s Oratory has always been an interesting subject for me to photograph.  It’s dominating presence can only truly be appreciated once one is up close to it, only then will you be able to truly appreciate it’s large than life architecture.

By night, it is no less impressive to see it under the light of the moon, as well as in the light that floods over it, from spotlights strategically placed around the grounds.

Crisp Winter Sunset

There’s nothing like vast, open farm fields in the winter time, with a beautiful sunset on the horizon.  It’s one of those moments that I can’t resist taking a photograph of.

What really drew me to this scene, was the rays of sun piercing through the clouds, carrying the light of the heavens down to earth.
