I hear there\’s been a lot of fog in Toronto recently, and I\’m starting to feel a wee bit homesick. I didn\’t bring my main Lightroom library to Asia for safety and space reasons, instead buying a blank 1 TB portable external, but I do have a few oldies kicking around on this here Macbook. [...]

I considered titling this photo more cleverly because I enjoy that sort of thing (if you haven\’t noticed by now). But then I realized that I didn\’t want or need to say very much. I LOVE THIS CITY.

The Royal Ontario Museum\’s Michael Lee-Chin Crystal is a curious glass object. Much like a prism, and much like a camera lens. The Crystal — representing aesthetic controversy.
