One year ago today I arrived in Australia.
A few months before that, with a suitcase and a new camera, I left home to move to Kingston, Ontario for the summer. I killed a lot of time in Toronto that day wandering around taking photos on the streets, but my favourites are still the images from the plane, the subway, and the bus.
Bird’s view of the Alberta prairies, wheeling over a lovely industrial area with Calgary’s downtown core off in the distance and the Rockies on the horizon.
The bleak concrete of Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Navigating Toronto’s colourful underground system. I saw more stops than I needed to.
Crowds well up on the street corners when the light turns red. Changing lights control the constant ebb and flow of people on the sidewalk.
The man on the left looks a bit lost, wandering through the construction cones, in stark contrast to the sexy, glamorous billboards rising above the open side of the street.
Panning on the Don Valley Parkway from the bus window, en route to Kingston.
