Halloween at Elora

Halloween at Elora

两个星期前,Ed带我去一个小镇, Elora, 看秋叶。

暂不谈这个小镇。先要给大家看看Elora镇上最酷的万盛节装饰!

怎么样?超棒吧? 铁线加棉纱,就是是鬼怪妖精,厉害!

以上的图片是在Elora旅客中心的庭院拍的。

镇上很多商店都有相似的装饰。

看来是镇中心请来专业艺术家把整个城镇装扮,以吸引游客。

明天就是万圣节了,以上的照片是送给你们的。

有去派对的朋友玩得开心点哟!

Two weekends ago on a drive to see autumn leaves colours, Ed and I went to a small artsy village town just outside of Toronto called Elora.

The most interesting thing about the villatge were the decorations they did for Halloween, by far the most elobrate and createive I’ve seen.  The town organised an artist(or a group of artists) to build goulish scuptures out of metal wire and cotton gauze.  The above photos were taken in the front of the Elora tourist center but the village had set up scupltures all over the main street and shops.

Tomorrow night is Halloween (All Hallows’ Even) so enjoy the celebration of ghosts and goblins and have fun !!!

Pride Parade 08

Pride Parade 08

要写Pride 游行很久了。但Ed很自豪他为这部落拍的照片。硬要自己来整理,不让我这个闲空小姐来做。他说,我的水准没他的好。我等啊等的, 等到花儿也谢了,都见不到他‘专业水准’的照片。唉!男人靠不得。还是我自己先贴上一张让大家赏赏吧。

Pride 是多伦多一年一度同性恋者的游行。我去年错失了,今年当然没‘走宝’。暂不多说当天的游行。先说一说这张照片。

Toronto Urban Beach

urban beach

有一天到多伦多市南部的Lake Ontario沿岸走走。

看到了这所谓的城市沙滩觉得很奇怪又好玩。

这长长的人造沙滩建在Lake Ontario 旁, 去年六月正式开放给公众。

这沙滩,虽有点怪,没海浪,也没得下水玩或游泳,但有沙,又有湖景,加上金黄色的太阳伞,还是特别有味道。

穿上性感泳衣,躺在沙上来个太阳浴,或带小孩来玩玩泥沙的游戏,或来沿沙滩走走吹吹 ‘湖风’,和其他沙滩又有什么不同呢?

也同样是一个悠闲平静的夏季下午。

During my leisurely walk along the waterfront, I was surprised to see a ‘beach’.

It is literally like a giant long sandbox along the water edge that is filled with sands and many tall yellow umbrellas.

I then realised it is a new waterfront public space project that was opened June 2007.

Well, it looks a little strange and awkward that a ‘beach’ that has no swimming and no waves. However, the good news is, you do have lots of sands, plus a lake view, with the umbrellas and chairs.

As you can see, many people enjoy lying on the sands for a sunbath , or bringing their children for some sand games, or just simply walk along the ‘beach’ and enjoy the refreshing lake breezes. So, what’s the real difference and why not?

And, it is equally a beautiful, lazy and leisurely summer afternoon.

我’有幸’体验到多伦多近十年来最严重的暴风雪。

昨天一整天,雪不停地下,不停地下….

我和Ed穿得厚厚地跑出去‘赏雪。

因积雪有20至30公分高,步步艰辛,才绕公寓一圈,我已气喘如牛。

今早,雪小了,轻轻地飘。

太阳跑了出来, 人们也出来了。我也出去拍拍照片。

阳光反射在洁白的雪上,好美好美。

人们暂抛开要清理那么多的雪的烦恼,先快乐地享受….

I was ‘fortunate’ enough to have the chance to experience the worst snowstorm in nearly ten years in Toronto.

The snow was pouring non-stop yesterday.

Ed and I went out during the storm, well, for an experience. It was rare chance.

The streets were covered by 20 to 30 cm of snow and was extremely difficult to walk.

We only walked around our apartment but I was already quite exhausted.

This morning, though still snowing, only lightly.

Sun is out, people are out too. Me too, taking my camera for some photos.

Temporarily ignoring the need to clean up the mess, people want to first enjoy the sunshine-filled beautiful snowwhite city ….

这次去蒙特利尔一张照片都没拍到。反正为了见朋友,专心聊天就是了。加上,我也不懂怎么在这种又暗又湿的景象拍出好东西。我的朋友是摄影高手, 我也不好意思在高手面前献丑。

怎知,回到多伦多,才后悔没拍到秋末寒冷的蒙特利尔。所以,唯有向Daniel要了张照片留念。他好厉害!拍得真的好漂亮。在此与大家分享。谢谢了,Daniel !

拍这张照片时, 天空中已飘着雪片…..街上一片冷清….

It was rare to catch up with a friend, let alone someone from Australia. We met up in Montreal. It was very wet and dark while we were there. I knew I was not capable of take any good photos in such conditions. In addition, my friend, Daniel is a keen photographer and I knew I feel embarrassed to take photos in front of an “expert” 😉

When I returned to Toronto, I regretted that decision. No matter how poor the quality would be, I should have  a photo of Montreal in late autumn/early winter. I asked Daniel to send me one of his photos. The photo is so quite well taken and rather beautiful (see above)! Thank you Dan!

P.S. It was already snowing when the picture was taken.

Taking advantage of good weather yesterday, I went for a walk in our neighbourhood, just to check out how Canadians crazy for Halloween.
