The Junction, December 13th

Thanks for all the suggestions of places to go – looks like we’ve got ideas for a good few months to come!

I’ve just created a Facebook event for the next photo walk:

Where: The Junction (meet at Rebas Cafe & Gallery, 3289 Dundas Street West)
When: Sunday, December 13th, 2pm onwards – we’ll be in the pub when it’s dark šŸ™‚

I have drafted a route but obviously we can tweak it as the group wants. Google Maps say it’s a 3.4km (2.1 miles), which is the same as the Yorkville photo walk, and that took us about 4 hours!

  1. Hello Paul:

    That a wonderful initiative!

    Welcome to the historical West Toronto Junction [The Junction].

    If I may suggest you to start from Runnymede and Dundas Street West and move along the Dundas to East till the Dundas Street West Subway Station with visiting some back lanes and other places.

    Have fan and looking forward to see your photos,

    Regards,
    ~Olga

    live in the Junction area and take lots of shots and walks in the area. http://www.flickr.com/photos/grantmac/sets/72157621788317599/ is my Junction set. Not sure how complete it is and many of the shots are quite old:-) A couple of things you should add to the walk is High Park Ave. from Dundas to at least Glenlake. In particular there is the Heinzman house. I believe that is my most view image. http://www.flickr.com/photos/grantmac/520043897/ It is on the west side of High Park Ave. If you want a nice shot of the tracks there is also the railway bridge at Dundas ST W and Glenlake. Watch out for a wonderful art deco building on the north side of Dudas just east of Keele. The building on the east side of Keele at Dundas has just been repaired and restored on the outside so it is a great subject as well.

    I don’t think we’ll have time to get to the Heinzman house but the Glenlake bridge is on the route.

  3. The forecast now (Saturday, 11am) says: “Cloudy with sunny periods. Rain beginning early in the morning and ending in the afternoon. Wind becoming southwest 30 km/h in the morning then light late in the evening. High plus 4.” Let’s re-assess the weather tomorrow morning and decide whether to postpone the photo walk; I’m hopeful that “ending in the afternoon” means we’ll be OK to get out and shoot.
    **Check the thread on the website for a last minute decision.

  4. Executive decision: Let’s do it! It’s dry right now (9am) despite what the forecast says, so I’m hoping it’ll stay dry this afternoon. If it doesn’t, then we’ll find a bar or somewhere to hide out (and take some indoor shots) until it does šŸ™‚

    See you all at Rebas Cafe at 2pm – if you’re late, call me (647-388-5356) and we’ll let you know where we are so you can catch up.
