Ahhhh Toronto, lovely city--truly. The photographer's other photos reveal some prettier sides of the city. That's not to say that the back alleys, etc, are not beautiful/interesting...

The photo of the gum disposal bin made me a bit sad, even though the bin itself was quite adorable. But what about the missing DNA from the streets of Toronto? What about leaving bits of ourselves behind at Danforth & Pape?

I love the challenge of making a creation-a-day. I'm sure you're well versed in how much you can learn from doing this, ze. I just started doing a drawing/illustration a day (at http://www.flickr.com/photos/shannou/sets/72157600031511380/), and am excited about what has come out of it after only a few days.

Ahhh, DDOI. One of my favourites, and along with chromasia one of the inspirations for me starting my own photoblog a bit over a year ago.

Great pics :) I love the gum disposal bins :D

Gorgeous! I love how rich and deep the pictures feel. A good photographer can just suck my eyes straight into a picture.

Great link! I try to do a similar thing on my own blog (www.rowdydow.com/blog), but I often miss days simply because I fail to see the photo opportunities that are right there in front of me. I'm subscribing to Sam's feed in hopes that it inspires me to "see better". Thanks, Ze.

ps- I miss The Show.
