Justice or

Okay, I might be going back along way with this one. I am pretty sure it was back in afternoon kindergarten.
I don't have a great memory for too many things that have happened in my life, but a couple have stuck.

I remember getting this amazing Batmobile for Christmas in the mid sixties. I was playing with it one day (before Christmas) when my parents asked me where I got it from. Seeing that I wasn't old enough to catch on to the tone in my mom's voice, I said it had my name on it under the tree. Well, that was the wrong answer, it was taken away until the actual day came and my parents were still nice enough to give it to me anyway.
So here comes the justice part.
We were told we could bring something to school to play with, I loved that Batmobile so it was the first thing I thought of. I remember that at nap time we put our things into a cupboard so they wouldn't get misplaced. Well misplaced it was. I haven't seen that thing since the nap lights went back on. I'm sure someone was playing with it for many days right in the yard and I couldn't figure it out.
That was one of my favourite shows growing up, and it took me a few years to realize that the theme song only had one word in it..... BATMAN, along with a bunch of nanna, nannas.

Sunday Stills: Architecture

This week's challenge is architecture. I had been walking around Toronto looking for interesting shots before becoming a blogger. Fellow bloggers had sent me the Sunday Stills page and I found them very interesting. Seeing that my family got me a fantastic new Nikon for Christmas, I've been snapping all kinds of shots not only learning the camera, but what to take. I like the Sunday Stills because they get you thinking and creating. These may not be the most interesting pictures in the challenge, but I wanted to get started, so I pulled these out.

Here are a few from my archives.
Straight up Old City Hall in Toronto, ON.

2 of the most recognizable buildings. Rogers Centre (SkyDome) and the CN Tower.

Last shot.

I love the simplicity of this doorway.

See you at the next challenge.

First Blog

First blog. Ever!

I've never been a diary person, nor shared too many thoughts outward, but opinions, that's different.
But I do have a lot of opinions, so my wife says.
Anyway, I just started this, and wanted to get something posted to start.
I will tweak, tune and adjust this throughout my learning curve.

Enjoy, or not.
