Mount Pleasant Cemetery Visitation Centre


East side of the new visitation center
I passed through the south end of the Mount Pleasant Cemetery and noticed that the outside work on the new Mount Pleasant Visitation Centre is pretty much complete. The visitation centre ( don't call it a funeral home ) has a long, protracted history reaching back to initial plans in 2004. It looks like they've done a nice job of the building and landscaping, and the running/walking/biking path is now open. Here are some photos from the end of September, 2009.

Fashion photography at the ROM and AGO - Fall 2009

| |

Toronto has not one, but two fashion photography exhibits this fall. One at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and one in the new crystal at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM).

  • Edward Steichen: In High Fashion, the Condé Nast Years, 1923–1937
  • Vanity Fair Portraits: Photographs 1913 - 2008

Both shows are worth checking out if you are a fan of classic fashion, modern fashion, or portrait photography.

Tiny Beaches rail trail outside Elmvale north to Penetanguishene

| |

There is a wonderful multi-use trail called the Tiny Beaches rail trail, running north just outside Elmvale up to Penetanguishene. It is a snowmobile trail in the winter, and a great biking, running, and hiking trail in the summer and fall (there are LOTS of bugs in the spring...).

Here's a short video of a few sections along the northern end of the trail from July, 2009.

Ottawa Lock #3 Time Lapse video

| |

We were in Ottawa last summer, and I've finally got around to adding some music to a time lapse video I made of one of the locks on the Rideau Canal, right downtown.

I used a Canon PowerShot SD870 IS and the built in time lapse function, trying to hold the camera as steady as possible against a railing.
