    Street Photography: "The Urban Project"

    What makes your city your city?

    For me it is all of its changing little things - one day you go to a familiar street corner and all is changed - I tend to see different people all the time since Toronto is a big city but also the familiar faces.

    What makes my city, mine? Well it is a living city - full of people and human elements where people mark their place in their own corner of paradise.

    I guess I never really had a place I liked as much as
    Toronto and I am just starting to get to know this city 8 years after moving in it - yet, yet there is so much more to it than I can possibly experience.



    Here are some examples of people marking their space in the world, in Toronto.



    I think that when all my travels are done - I may just settle down in Toronto and experience it all over again.



    It is such a colorful city where everyone gets along







    What makes my city, mine? Well these weren't there last week and in a few months some will be replaced by new ones... A city is a living thing, the tides and waves of humanity constantly shaping it and re-shaping it, bending it to their wills.



    Not something you'd see in a small town!







    My city is full of...



    My city is full of love.



    Albeit a rich city - My city is full of misery and people needing some love...



    My city is full of couples.



    My city is full of visitors - These are from Plymouth, England.



    My city is a fortress of solitude - if you want to be left alone there is no better place than a big city.



    My city is filled with interesting architecture with a rich history.



    My city has a story to tell...





    A story with its ups and downs a story better told by the people who pass by and live in it, for ever and a day, for a week or a few years.



    My city is filled with beauty!



    Lotsa beauty!







    My city is made up of the people who live in it, work in it, visit it, love in it...













    What a great expression! What a smirk!





    My city has strange places...

    Love it, hate it, be indifferent to it - it matters not to me cause I love My Toronto, and the people who make

    Toronto a nice place to live in.

    Now time for the picture of the day!





    That was only a tid bit of my city...
