Me and my ticket #toronto #blondie #garbage #concert #sonycentreto

Last night, I attended the Toronto date of the Rage and Rapture tour, featuring Garbage and Blondie. It was amazing.

My photo album featuring some of my photos taken in the course of the concert is here.

[PHOTO] Eleven photos of the World’s Largest Rubber Duck, HTO Park

I went down after work to the Toronto waterfront, to HTO Park, to take a look at the World’s Largest Rubber Duck brought to moor just off that park’s surface by the Redpath Waterfront Festival. It was huge, easily looming over even neighbouring boats. Though it was controversial and remains confusing–I do not see what kind of connection the World’s Largest Rubber Duck has with #Canada150–it was cute. Certainly the dense throngs of people crowded onto the park, taking photos of the duck and of others and themselves, suggests it was a huge hit.

Quora is fun, not least because of the swag you can get if you qualify as a Top Writer.

[PHOTO] Me and the Steam Canoe on Woodbine Beach (#winterstations)

Me and the Steam Canoe, 1 #toronto #thebeach #woodbinebeach #winterstations #thesteamcanoe #me #selfie

I took this selfie standing on Woodbine Beach in front of the Steam Canoe, an art installation built by a team from OCAD University, one of seven built around lifeguard stations on the beaches of east-end Toronto in the Winter Stations program. The Steam Canoe is the last one I visited, as I spent the afternoon walking across Kew and Balmy Beaches and Woodbine Beach to their west.

The installations got quite a lot of coverage. Toronto news sites covered it: see CBC, NOW Toronto,Torontoist, the Toronto Star, and Toronto.com. It also got substantial coverage elsewhere: see ArchDaily, Canadian Architect, and Slate. This attention was deserved, these works being at the very least inventive.

It was a beautiful day, so warm that the Steam Canoe could not produce steam via its solar panels. This, yet another record high this winter, is alarming, but was only distantly. I’d had a beautiful time. The extended photo post will be up tomorrow morning.
