rainy night cab ride...

This winter in Toronto is not so snowy, so far. It's colder now, but a few weeks ago there was no snow and it felt a bit like a raw early spring. The night I took these pix, the wet streets were reflecting light. I found myself snapping. The digital camera sure is fun to play with.

Hey doodlers

Ya there isn't much snow this year...I didn't invest on a new winter coat cause of it...but now it seems that winter is back with a vengeance....I guess I should start wearing more than a tank top....

I like a lot the university one.
Question:
I meet in Egypt a retired Canadian doctor who says that you have -40 degrees!!!! so then , the cars have an extra heating dispositive in case you broke in the middle of nothing...
Is it true?
the doctor was great and very funny as well,

I think that my last post isn't clear at all...

Hi Alberto! No worries. Your post was very clear.

What a funny story. Maybe the doctor you met was from the Prairies or a more northern part of Canada. It is colder there. Where we live, the temperature is not that cold. More like 0 degrees, or a bit under. But there is a wind so it feels colder.

Thanks for visiting! I like your newest paintings on your blog very much.

I agree with everything that Eren said. You inspired me so that I took the camera out this morning during the snow/slush/ice/rain weather we were having. Check them out whne you get a chance....

I like those pictures!
You left a very nice comment about my washes the other day, but funny enough it doesn't appear in my comments, so just wanted to thank you!

Might I say that it's 62 degrees here in Berkeley, California! Looks -brrrr- cold up yonder.

Nice capture of the evening!
