Toronto: A Canadian Staple

This shot was taken in May of 2013 in downtown Toronto. I was standing on a bridge across the railroad tracks facing towards Rogers Centre (formerly known as the Skydome)

In a time of confusion, disappointment and opportunity, I impulsively hopped on a place to visit a few friends in Ontario. After spending some time in Ireland and unhappy with the results, I decided it was time to go home. All the way back to Vancouver was out of the question, so halfway between home and back east was where I met some of the kindest people I’ve encountered on this earth. The friends that I made in Toronto will undoubtedly bring me back there as soon as life will allow. Two of the people I encountered showed me to these places for these pictures to happen. Above is the CN Tower from the home of the Blue Jays, the bridge to Rogers Centre. Below is Casa Loma, a castle style residence that has been turned into a museums. To more adventures with amazing people!

Thanks for following, friends!

In downtown Toronto, a castle named Casa Loma is hiding behind George Brown College and Spadina Park. It inspired me with it's beauty a few times while I was living in and near Toronto.

Edinburgh

My favourite part of Scotland definitely had to be the stunning landscape. From the steep hills in the city streets to the mountainous climbs in the more rural ares of the city. As the Scottish capital, it is well known around the world for the four-week-long festival held in August annually, during which time the city’s inhabitants double in numbers.

I happened to visit after the hoards of people had moved on, but still you could see signs and advertisements all over the place for various shows held during the time of the festival. Something else you are sure to find in the city, no matter the time of year, are beautiful buildings. First and foremost, Edinburgh Castle. There has been a royal castle on that site since at least the reign of David I in the 12th century and the old world quality of the location makes for stunning visuals.

Today, I choose another a visual from Edinburgh Castle, a view of the city towards the water. Thanks for following, friends!
