Friday Shoot-out: Reflections

Patty and Reggie Girl have organized the Friday Photo Shoot Out asking us to post photos of our local community every Friday. From a handful of participants it has grown into a world wide phenomenon. This week's theme is reflections.

There are links to many of the Friday Shoot Out participants from literally around the world at the bottom of my left panel. For a comprehensive list see Patty's blog. Maybe you'd like to join us as well and post photos of your community? Click here for everything you need to know to join the Friday Shootout Gang. Next weeks theme is to be determined.

I live in Toronto, in the Scarborough area of Toronto, in the West Hill area of Scarborough. So West Hill will be the focus of my photos.


The Trans Canada VIA Train arriving at our local Guildwood GO/VIA station. Train engineers are scheduled to go on strike this weekend if a last minute deal isn't arrived at by then. They will be joining Toronto's garbage workers who have been on strike for over a month. Soon nothing will be working in Toronto.

Reflection of the forest where I take Lindsay for her runs, on a rainy day.

Houseboats are becoming more common at Bluffers Marina. It's a life style that appeals to me, but not one I would ever take up. Many of the houseboats have been winterized and are lived in all year round, even through Toronto's winters.

Lindsay is undeterred by life's puddles. A reflection of her adventurous nature?

Linda and I have fond memories of staying at my daughter Kathy's in-laws cottage in Northern Ontario. A very peaceful and beautiful place.

Although this beautiful home in Perth Ontario is another reflection of my vacation tastes
