    Toronto | BMO Field Renovations | ?m | ?s | MLSE | Gensler

    Well, apparently FIFA considers the pitch itself a plus at BMO Field. That’s an important starting point! They will have some work to do to reach 45,000 plus seats and I look forward to seeing the plans. At a guess, they will build a new south stand at a steeper pitch than the present...

    Re Goldie’s “Royal” photo. My family and I walked out to Eglinton and Brentcliffe to see the Queen pass by back on that royal visit. I suppose that would be perhaps three minutes before the shot of her passing the IBM building. If my memory is correct, she was on her way to open the Golden Mile...

    A rainy day photo of a pond at Humber Bay Park. If you look carefully, you will see a Mute Swan nesting amidst the reeds. Less obvious is a Great Blue Heron standing to its right near the lower middle of the photo. In the background is the central tower of the Marina del Rey complex. I think...

    And while I am on the subject of boats, here are two shots of another vessel being delivered this spring. The two vessels were manufactured in Quebec, in Shawinigan, if I recall correctly. As you can see, this craft was delivered by trailer. The larger vessel, from which the skyline shot in the...

    This one is almost a year old now, but I came across it today and thought it might merit being posted. The shot is from a water taxi in the Harbour.

    There is one advantage to clear glass on balconies When I sit on my balcony, I appreciate the clear glass. It means I can look down through the glass and don’t have to stand up to see objects or happenings on, for example, the street.

    You know it’s truly spring when “Crane Day” arrives, the day the local marinas rent a gian crane to hoist the boats into the Lake.

    I think this is a mink, beside a pond in Humber Bay Shores Park East. I certainly stand to be corrected, however. In another walk past the same pond (no photos, sorry) I saw a small group of Red Breasted Mergansers fishing. In a brief span, three of them were successful and nabbed small...

    Not a shot of wildlife directly but this looks like beaver activity to me. The shots are from the walkway along the cove with the marinas, west of Mimico Creek. I talked with a jogger who runs the route daily and he believes the activity is very recent, as seems to be confirmed by the fresh...

    Good point, though Iwas using the word “successful” from the swans’ point of view, as it were. They have multiplied and flourished, though likely to the detriment of native species, just as you say. My own completely non-expert observation is that they considerably outnumber the native...

    ”Mute“ swans, I believe, though that is not really an accurate description. These are a successful import from Europe

    A question: are developers required to designate and put in or arrange for spaces for charging stations for electrical vehicles? There are three EV stations in our building and they are busy. My guess is that they will become even more widely needed.
