Toronto Ice Storm Photos – December 21, 2013

Posted by Joseph on December 23, 2013 in Hang it on the Wall, Personal | 1 Comment

The winter solstice is typically a day to celebrate. After all, after December 21, the days get longer and you’re that much closer to Christmas! Hooray! This year, December 21 brought many million bucketloads of ice to Toronto. Fortunately, we still have our power, though hundreds of thousands are without (including my parents) and because […]

Icicles – Beautiful or Deadly?

Posted by Joseph on December 19, 2013 in Hang it on the Wall, Personal | No Comments

I noticed these two icicles growing on my balcony last night and I loved the way the Christmas lights were reflected in their spherical wonderment… awesome… but then I thought, as I’m sure most of us have when we see these massively sharp blocks of ice, “Man, these are really dangerous, how many people are […]

In February of this year, I went to Paris to visit my best man Mike. He had landed a post-doc in the world’s most beautiful city so I made it a point to visit him seven months into his year abroad. Although I had been to Paris in April of 2001, having a tour guide […]

India – Taj Mahal Lightning Photos

Posted by Joseph on April 8, 2013 in Hang it on the Wall, Personal | 1 Comment

A magical evening to say the least. Each of these photos contains a silhouette of the Taj Mahal and lightning. It was pretty breathtaking. I recommend clicking on each image to view a larger photo, especially if you can’t quite make out the Taj or the lightning. All photos were taken from the roof of […]

Foggy Night in Toronto

Posted by Joseph on January 30, 2013 in Hang it on the Wall, Personal | 1 Comment

It’s been so cold recently, amazing how a rainy day and foggy evening can just transform the way you see your own neighbourhood. Brought out my new camera to test it in low light situations and was pretty happy with the results. Plus, thick fog, wet branches and a moon pretty close to full make […]

Jordan – Wadi Rum and Petra

In May of this year my fiancée (now wife) and I had a quick trip to Jordan, visiting both Wadi Rum and Petra. While I don’t usually post personal projects on this blog, the trip was too visually stunning not to share. Both locations were on my bucket lists (as are most UNESCO World Heritage […]

Please blow your smoke elsewhere…

Please blow your smoke elsewhere. My respiratory system, unfortunately, is below par. I suspect that I am the result of particularly weak conception on the part of my father. His sperm was probably emitted in a rather offhand manner. A Confederacy of Dunces – John Kennedy Toole, pg 324

Every few minutes, someone would…

Every few minutes, someone would come and paint over the gray with a different-textured gray – one with a touch of gold or green or red. I was impressed with the variety of grays that existed. Human beings were so strange. All you had to do was sit still for ten minutes, and you could […]

He watched the scene and thought of life…

Posted by Joseph on January 6, 2010 in Hang it on the Wall, Quote Included, Snapshot | No Comments

He watched the scene and thought of life; and (as always happened when he thought of life) he became sad. A gentle melancholy took possession of him. He felt how useless it was to struggle against fortune, this being the burden of wisdom which the ages had bequeathed to him. Dubliners “A Little Cloud” – […]

Magical lightning storm in Toronto tonight. It was brilliant. I caught a few photos from my garage (below) and when I felt it was safe, braved the elements and made my way to the waterfront to catch the storm as it headed South over Lake Ontario and into New York. It was an amazing storm, […]
