Toronto is an amazing place to visit. There is so much to see. To get your self started, I would recommend taking the open top bus tours. With the tours, you can also take a boat ride through all of the islands. This is an excellent opportunity to get some of the typical postcard shots of the skyline. The buses also gave you an idea of where everything is and gives you your bearings.

Yonge Street which is pronounced Young Street is pretty cool. It has lots of shops and bars and the like and runs all the way up through the different districts. You could spend a full day just on Yonge Street. There is also Dundas Square that has a stage permanently up and always seems to have something or other going on.

There are some excellent photo opportunities on both the bus and just walking around. Lots of bright and shiny things and lots of street performers. The best time to go is a nice sunny day. It may be advisable not to go in the middle of summer though, as it can get pretty scorching.

    as a Toronto resident I say that you covered a very small part of Toronto, but covered it well =)
    in picture #3 you can almost see the place i bought my fake I.D.

    next time you visit make sure to travel along Queen St. West or Kensington - there are many great shots there. As well as China Town, Little Italy, The Danforth, India Town... the list goes on.

    Toronto is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. That's why there are so many great shots in it! I still need to cover it's streets fully with my cameras...

    The European Dream - Selfies from Oranienplatz: Exhibition in Berlin

    In more ways than one, Lomography is an art form as much as it is an effective tool to communicate. This is proven in the politically-driven exhibition “Selfies from Oranienplatz," of which the opening event will be taking place on the 16th of October as part of the European Month of Photography in Berlin.

    Nothing Happens on Color Film: Street Life in Como As Seen From the Bus

    Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window. He is the master of the ordinary moments, capturing the essence of daily life in a series of free and random sequence of photos where nothing important happens! And as I've written there I wanted to take a similar experiment with color film, which would change the perception of the environment where people live. Read more after the jump!

    Turning the Turquoise Over

    The LomoChrome Turquoise film boasts bold and unpredictable colors, so I thought "redscaling" it would yield an even more dramatic result. Much to my surprise, the dominant color palette of my photographs revealed LomoChrome Turquoise's soft and delicate side.
