Auto Show 2017 Toronto – Sleek and Sexy

This year the auto show, in Toronto, brought an impressive collection of new and ‘old’ style exotic cars for us to drool over and admire. I imagined myself racing in several of the specimens on display.

Enjoy this mini photo show of some the highlights from the show.

Holi – Celebration of Spring

Holi – tradition of celebrating spring:

“Celebrating the colors
Of our beautiful relationship,
I wish you and your family
All the bright hues of life!!”
**Have a Colorful Holi** ref link

Sometimes all you have is the phone in your pocket.

Don’t let that stop you from capturing a most wonderful moment in your life. I hope you enjoy this quick capture of iphone photos, taken as I enjoyed the welcoming of spring with this beautiful festival – Holi.

Love Squared

Has anyone ever truly figured out that answer?


This photo:
Part of a large graffiti message along the streets of Toronto.
This particular section is along the base, edge of the sidewalk.
What does it mean to really love? the man seems to ask.

Art in Urban Decay

There is a subtle beauty in the decay of modern humanity.
Places destroyed, waiting. Patient. Stoic perhaps. Holding on to remnants of what was.

The past decaying into present beauty.  Art in Urban Decay.
