@ Grey Towers: Thank you! I love it when people are so relaxed and are taking their time in parks and squares, the beaches and gardens and their balconies, or wherever (as long as the place needs no rushing nor have waiting lines ), it kind of slows down the fast, fast, fast and busy, busy, busy world.

@ PFloyd: I actually didn't know who said/ used it first that's why it was a trivia for me. So thanks for the clarification. I really like the quote, and I have seen and experienced many situations before wherein all I can say is "The World Needs More Canada," and then sigh.

@ Chadoh25: Thanks, thanks!!! Appreciate it!!

It's not "you guys", it's my error then. I thought he coined it, but I guess he just made it famous.
Quote:
One thing is for sure certain: The World Does Not Need More Bono.
Well, I'm no fan of his, nor of celebrities in general, but I think anyone who tries to use his/her prominence in a positive way, to bring to public attention world issues that would otherwise be ignored, is commendable. He understands the objectionable celebrity-deification zeitgeist and exploits it for good, relatively speaking. However, I would have a lot more respect for his pontificating if he actually put his money where his mouth is and didn't live like a typical decadent, profligate celeb.
Anyway, enough of that. I don't want to hijack MarkHerz's thread of evocative photography.

@ christos-greece: Thanks, thanks!!!

@ PortoNuts: Thank you!!! I hope this thread helped a bit in convincing you to visit Toronto and Canada!

@ Grey Towers: Evocative photography... Wow! That's a powerful adjective or description or epithet for me! Thanks very much!! Appreciate it!!

@ MikeOnt: Thanks MikeOnt! Most shots are actually not planned except for some events that I go to. I just usually bring my camera in my pocket whenever I go out of the house, and if I see something that catches my attention, I snap it right away before the moment is lost forever (and I failed in too many occasions). So I don't really lurk in the shadows hahaha. In public I just take snapshots of anything or anyone, but I do ask for permission from others if they are willing to, like people who work, or perform or busk, or to the parents of children in some cases etc.

In the previous pic, with the light decoration, is that the PATH? I've always been amazed by the underground city.

@ Chadoh25: Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

@ MikeOnt: I know eh?! It's better to have brought the worst camera as long as it is functioning, than none at all.
