Diana vs. Fantasia

As if the final for American Idol 3 wasn’t quite obvious now. Besides the fact that there would have been an uproar (once again) should Jasmine win over either one of the two, it was clearly her time to say goodbye no matter what kind of an eye candy she happened to be. I only […]

TV Junkie I am

After weeks and weeks of procrastinating (because that’s what I do best) I finally started planning a rough itinerary for my trip, only to realize that I was lacking some serious timeage to go to all the places I wanted to actually go to. Somehow or another I was going to have to pull off […]

TV Night!

I came home from work utterly exhausted today; I’m not quite sure why either since I had a good 7 hours of sleep last night. I guess it may have to do with the fact that I was sitting in front of the computer for a good 8 hours. When I got home, I grabbed […]

Saturday Night Live’s Season Finale

For some reason or another I was watching Saturday Night Live (SNL) this evening. It’s been a while since I watched the show. It brings me back to those good old days when the only things you had to worry about were if you did your math homework or if you remembered to wash your […]

 There is something special about each sunrise shoot that I go to, even if it is overcast. At first, I thought this particular morning was a bust: too much cloud coverage, gray all over, and nothing too exciting to photograph. As the morning went by, something started happening in the clouds though. One particular area in the clouds started glowing white and was much brighter than anything else around it. It was almost surreal—I didn’t know what was happening. I started taking pictures of this anomaly and it wasn’t until I looked at my pictures on my computer that this bright spot in the clouds was actually reflecting the colours from the sun. The coloured clouds had spread by the time I took this one, but you can still see the colour difference from the blue tones found everywhere else. .

Is this her way of telling us something? . I hope everyone has a wonderful Family Day, President’s Day, or Monday! .

 I’m glad I made it here just before the clouds covered over the colours that were there from the evening’s sunset. . Located by Spencer Smith park in Burlington, the Brant Street Pier juts out 137 metres over Lake Ontario, and does it with style as it curves its way outward. The colour of the beacon changes to represent special events and activities throughout the year. . #sunset_ig #burlingtonontario #brantstreetpier #tourismburlington #discoveron #spencersmithpark #pastels #pastelsky #sky_sultans #torontoart #blogto #winterto#thelast6 #6ixwalks #curiocityto #awesome_shots #livefolk#landscape_lovers#sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld#sunrise_sunset_photogroup#longexposure_shots #longexpoelite# #moodygram#torontoblogger #torontoartist #sharecangeo  When is the sun not round? When it’s right at the horizon making its bright light look like its part of the sun. . I’m also liking how the horizon is not flat here, but very rough and rocky from the waves of Lake Ontario. . When you pay attention to the smaller things in front of you, you start to notice unusual things and hopefully appreciate what we have at our disposal. . Get this wallpaper in my Story!
