Awesome compilation.

About your recent set, i've always felt that the islands are being underutilized. Yeah, frisbee golf is awesome, but we need some more things to do there, maybe some important statue or some interesting architecture.

Spectacular job. It's time to contact all the photographers and publish the ultimate Toronto coffee table book... I want the first copy!

Looking/Up: there's some mind-boggling HDR shots in a huge Flickr photostream by a guy called Explorer Tresspasser (spelled this way)... be sure to have a look.

Thanks for the heads up, and I'll give it a look sometime.

And sadly, it does seem that at times the Toronto Island could be used to a greater degree. Many times I've gone the people have been far and few between, but that's the people's loss. When searching for the photos for the Islands I was struck by the number of photos that were called such things as "tranquility," "calmness," "peace," "paradise," "escape," etc. What these words conjure up is the mood I find prevalent on the Island. I'd hate to see the Island overcrowded with people. I think there is a balance that is possible between number of individuals there, while also remaining true to the tranquility that is made possible. I'd prefer long winding paths, beautiful bridges and overgrown trees to car-crash achitecture like, say, the ROM.

It is.

And it get's very humid at times. The lakefront is a great area to feel the cooler breeze that comes off the lake and to take a swim if one wants to....

Someone mentioned, why not have a post about the people who live here? I thought this was a great idea. So this post aims to represent the people that make this city so wonderful, the people that take the transit, inhabit the homes, play in the parks, shop in our malls, love, care, dine, drink, dance, and live in this city that is our shared home.

The water in the lake should be cold, as a fresh-water...

Lake Ontario is actually VERY cold. It is very deep and very rarely warms up.
