Last week, I took my camera out to catch a glimpse of nearby Toronto’s Kew Gardens and the fading remnants of our Remembrance Day commemorations.
Although I was in Austin to attend the amazing screenwriters’ conference attached to the Austin Film Festival, I did manage to make my way around town with my camera (and cell phone).
Sadly, it was not until the day I left that I discovered the amazing trail around Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake). Next year, I will be back with a vengeance to record the trail and its astounding diversity of flora and fauna.

As I was putting trash into the bins behind the house, I was caught by the profusion of colour pouring down the wall at the back of the yard. What is usually variegated blanket of green had exploded into a rainbow.
Another wander along the boardwalk brings colour and a bit of a sprinkle.
Yesterday, we checked out the birds of autumn. Today, it is a few furry friends I met in the cemetery who very warily kept an eye on me.
I guess I can understand that. Any movement in a cemetery must be a tad unnerving.
As I mentioned earlier, I took a bit of a walk to visit my grandparents’ grave yesterday and brought along my camera. During my expedition, I was glad to see that a number of animals had not yet given up on Toronto and could still be found, prepping for the coming winter.
Today, the birds.
More photos from my sandy walk along Toronto’s beaches.
Even as the overnight temperatures in Toronto reach the mid-single digits Celsius (about 40 F), a few die-hards–human, animal and vegetable–have refused to give up on the beach.
