[PHOTO] Three photos taken along the eastern shore of the Humber River at night

leave a comment »

Walking up the paths on the eastern shore of the Humber River in full spring flood at night, from Magwood Park up to Home Smith and the great bridge that takes Dundas Street West over, you can get a sense of the immensity of the natural world. Even in a carefully maintained Toronto, nature retains its force.

[PHOTO] Three photos of the night sky from Magwood Park

Before the Nightwalking Jane’s Walk earlier this month, the last time I had visited Magwood Park by the east shore of the Humber was in 2015, when I visited in the search of old Iroquoian burial mounds. Walking around the park at night, when the only lights were the lights dimly appearing through the trees, was magical.

[PHOTO] Four photos of crossings of the Humber River at Old Mill

The transparency of Old Mill station makes it a compelling subject for photographers at night, especially with subway trains entering and leaving above the Humber.

[PHOTO] Three photos of Old Mill Station

leave a comment »

The TTC’s Old Mill station, one of the westernmost on the Bloor-Danforth line, is too easily overlooked. Although it is apparently the least busy station on the Bloor-Danforth line, it’s arguably one of the more striking, with its transparent glass walls open to vistas overlooking the Humber River and its valley.

[PHOTO] Six photos of Scadding Cabin, Exhibition Place

leave a comment »

Scadding Cabin, a log cabin named after the English immigrant John Scadding who built it in 1794 that happens to be the oldest known surviving house in Toronto, was the final stop on the Ghost Walk held at Exhibition Place. It was a good stop, between the dim of evening outside and the candles inside.

[PHOTO] Twelve photos from a Ghost Walk at Exhibition Place, Toronto (#explaceto)

The Jane’s Walk that took me through Exhibition Place‘s spaces, places like the General Services Building and the Horse Palace with their own reputations of odd happenings, was rather evocative. Kevin Connor’s Toronto Sun article goes into more detail about some of the stories that are told about this place by the lake.
