    Paul, how about Bloor West Village, High park & Swansea Village?

  2. paul Says:

    We did High Park a couple of walks ago (Feb 20th) – check out our route maps to see where we went!

  3. Sally Says:

    what about Portlands and Cherry Beach? or the Distillery?

  4. paul Says:

    Portlands and Cherry Beach are already on the list.
    I’ll add the Distillery to it.
    Thanks Sally.

  5. paul Says:

    I’ve even added markers to the map to show roughly where future walks might be.

  6. Bill Smith Says:

    How about the financial district/St. Lawerence Market?

  7. PaladinPhil Says:

    How about the Davisville/Mount Pleasant Cemetery? A lot of good scenery in that area. I would be also willing to plan a walk in that area if it ever comes up. I may do another walk about in the area to check on timing and such from different start locations.

  8. paul Says:

    @Phil: I thought about Mount Pleasant (I’ve walked it a few times with Toronto Trails) but I’ve heard they don’t like large groups of photographers. If you think we’ll be OK, I’ll add it to the list.

    Hi Paul,
    Would it possible to do a walk around University of Toronto downtown campus plus Queen’s Park? I loved the campus when I went over 25 years ago and they have since beautified it. I think the old buildings will be stunning for pictures. Look forward to your comment.

    Hi May,

    We touched on UofT when we walked Spadina back in January, so I think it might be time to revisit the area. I’ll add it in to some of the future polls and hopefully it’ll get enough votes to be picked as a photo walk venue.

  11. paul Says:

    Catching up on my emails; Jeff Stewart suggested Terminal 1 at Toronto Pearson International Airport, so I’ll add that to the list.

    For Aug 21 (or even later) combine Centre Island shoot with a night shoot…shoot lake etc. in the late afternoon, and then gather at dusk facing the downtown core and get shots of the cityscape at night. Certainly a lot safer than trying to shoot at night in the downtown core and you can get water reflections in as well.

    p.s. Regarding the suggestion of photographing in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, they chase even solo photographers away there. You’d have to call them and see if we can get permission to photograph there.

    There’s now an organised list of past walks @ http://torontophotowalks.ca/past-walks/

    Black Creek Village. Has a pub on site for lunch.

    Here is some info on the walk we talked about.

    We could meet at Kipling Station the go to the badlands. Have lunch in Belfountain and tour park and do after lunch.

    Something that incorporates Allen Gardens for one of the cold winter walks.
