The Princess Gate is really very beautiful, but I feel like it is too often overlooked because of where it is located. If it had been built closer to the downtown core (space permitting) I'm sure it would be an icon for the city. As it is, it is one of our city's overlooked gems.

It is actually the Princes' Gate.... opened in 1927, and named after the princes Edward, Prince of Wales (later Edward VIII), and George, (later The Duke of Kent).

@ Taller, Better: Wow, thanks for the trivia! In addition, it was built to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Canada's Confederation!

Great captures needs some time (seconds, minutes)

@ christos-greece: indeed, but for that one, it took me 30 mins or so standing still and pointing my camera, people actually stopped by, curious of what I'm aiming at hahaha
so for some good minutes, there's a lot of us there paused while looking up, it's like time stopped or there's a giant alien ship hovering towards Toronto
and I'm quite sure that some passersby took pictures of us because I saw some flashes from the side, maybe it's someone from here, we'll see haha

@ Taller, Better: Hi, thanks! Nope, I'm not in any picture; not actually a big fan of the present monarchy, I'm a Diana loyalist
The guys in the pic are a little bit older than me, I'm just about the same age as Prince William, or a year older I think haha

@ christos-greece: thanks pal! lately, I'm spending most of my free (and not so free) time here at SSC just reading and reading and reading and viewing threads and pics. For the past few days, I slept like 5-6 in the morning! This is not healthy anymore, perhaps I should read and view and post some more


@ bar1967: hi bar! well, 99.9% of the time I use Leica D-Lux 2, a simple, easy to use point-and-shoot, but lately I'm having problems with it since most pics are getting blurrier. It's not like that before, maybe I did something wrong in the settings.
And the remaining 0.1%, I use Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT. But I don't really use it that much since it's heavy and I know nothing about SLRs haha
That's why I just use it like a regular point-and-shoot whenever LOL What a waste! haha Both used to be my uncle's but since he got a new one, he gave them to me
So if anyone here is willing to teach me how to use it then that would be very much appreciated! LOL

You need to sleep (rest) a while, between your free times...
