  1. I have been loving your Toronto photos to the point where, when we’re watching one of the Mike Holmes shows, I feel like I know where I am. Well, at least I do when he’s in Toronto. GRIN!

    • Not all the houses here are built so poorly, wink wink. You’d love Toronto. If you ever make the trip, your old MySpace pal will happily be the tour guide! Happy 2015 upon ye, Blue.

  2. Very happy muse news, Rick. And from one photo to another, their differences in technique and your eye are so different. Amazing.
