It was snowing all morning in High Park… Let’s go out and shoot: enjoy the moment and capture the beauty of winter!

A winter wilderness escape in the middle of big city Toronto: photos and quotes.

Fall in High Park Toronto in full  bloom! Photos and quotes. See Part 1 for more.

“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” – Lord Byron

Autumn, what a delight! The fall has arrived in Canada changing the colours of the tree leaves from green to +50 shades of orange: from peach and marigold, to tangerine and persimmon, and in the end mahogany and rust…

A good place for an autumn stroll and photography is High Park, the biggest park in Toronto.

Wilderness in the middle of the city! One-third of the park remains in a natural state, with a rare oak savannah ecology. Significant natural parts of the park are classified as a provincial Areas of Natural and Scientific Interest. High Park was opened to the public in 1876. (Wikipedia)

A Halloween Story

“I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.”

Darkness  2019

Toronto’s most wicked street party takes place every year on Halloween night, October 31st. Hundreds of Halloween-dressed revelers converge at the Village (Church & Wellesley): scary zombies, clowns, trumps, witches, skeletons and other bloody creatures being treated by sexy nurses – plus a mixture of funny penguins, high tech robots, big head babies and even a pair of huge dinosaurs.

Spooky Night in Toronto

It was a dark, cold, rainy day – perfect for Halloween.

The Zombies Resurrection

It happens every year: the zombies take over Toronto!

What is a Zombie?

“The Walking Dead. Scientific name Homo Coprophagus Somnambulus.” – Urban Dictionary

“Zombie” definition extracts from the Urban Dictionary:

“A deceased human being who has partially returned to life due to undeterminable causes. The brain retains base facilities, namely gross motor function. In its near-mindless state, it grasps no remains of emotion, personality, or sensation of pain. In rare cases, some of the reanimated have reflexively preformed routine activities from their past lives.”

Memories of the Past

In a previous life, perhaps I was living in Asia since the connection to this continent is so strong.

After the “shock of arrival” to Asia via Hong Kong in 2003, I started exploring this amazing land – starting with China and ending in Thailand: Macau, Japan, Nepal, Tibet, India, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.

Each country brings memories of adventure and discovery, friendship and love.

In Cambodia is Angkor Wat – truly impressive, a masterpiece from the past.
