Toronto Photo Walks 1st Anniversary Party

Friday, November 19th, 2010

We’ll be organising a short photo walk before the party, so anyone who’s not been on one of the TOPW events before can get a taste of what we do … and work up a thirst 🙂

Date: Saturday 27th November 2010. (Yes, this is over a month’s warning!)
Meet: 6:00pm at Duggan’s Brewery, 75 Victoria St. (between Dundas and Queen Sts.).
Hashtag: please use “TOPW:A1”

Queens Quay, June 12th

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Queens Quay / Music Garden / Harbourfront easily won the poll (19 votes – 2nd place was Colonel Samuel Smith Park with 5 votes). I’m sure Georgette’s post about the World Naked Bike Ride helped 🙂

The forecast looks like we could be in for another wet/stormy walk – how do we keep picking those days?

Date: Saturday 12th June 2010.

Meet: 10:30am at Union Station, at the main (Front Street) entrance. I would say next to the “Monument to Multiculturalism” statue but it’s been removed.

Route: W on Front then S on Simcoe … G20 fences permitting! First stop is the Roundhouse and Steamwhistle Brewery – the brewery opens at 11am. Continue S on Simcoe to Harbourfront Centre. We’ll be generally heading W on Queens Quay, taking detours down each of the spits, before turning down Eireann Quay. There’s the ferry for the Island Airport (chance to shoot the skyline) and the Irish immigrants’ memorial. Then we’ll head up Bathurst, through Fort York, up Strachan and W on E Liberty Street.

Lunch: Shoeless Joe’s (To Be Confirmed)

Post-walk: Brazen Head Irish Pub (To Be Confirmed)

LJ community

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

I was surprised to find out (from some of the people at the High Park walk) that there are still people using LiveJournal – I’ve had an LJ account since mid-2001 but it seems to have gone quiet over the past few months, mostly as people move to Facebook/Twitter. Anyway, due to public demand, there is now a TOPW LiveJournal community @ [info]tophotowalks.
