Thank you, thank you! :)) It was rather an accident, but I liked the effect anyway! However, it didn't seem to make the cut for GE. Oh well. Better shoot something a bit more landscapy next time! Cheers from hot Toronto.

Whoa, very cool! Its like the wrong thing in focus that really makes it. I wonder if you could duplicate this on purpose?! hehehehe

Oh yes, I can always be relied on for a good old SNAFU!

This is what most of my bird shots look like, except that the background isn't nearly as sharp as this. I like this one very much!

I have shares of TD, but who knows, these days...looks fuzzy everywhere!

Tomas, from what I've been reading, Canadian banks are still in a pretty good shape. However, from my dealings with Canadian companies (Rogers, HME, some of the Big Five banks, even the local YMCA) I would not be surprised at all if they have pretty nasty skeletons in their cupboards - it's just that there's always a hint of certain shadiness, something you won't find even in the small print, and something that's going to bite you (usually something in the shape of hidden fees and unexplained charges). Then again, maybe it's a good business model, and as a shareholder, you should be happy! :)) Then again again, не пойман - не вор ("not a thief until you get caught") and I should give them the benefit of the doubt!

As much as I am aware of, Canadian banks are the safest among very few western nations (AUS, NZ & CH) to put the money in now.

Thanks to Gordon Thiessen, the BoC man before Mark Carney, for not listening to those progressive economists, who often shouted "deregulationnn..nn.n", "Canadian banks are boring" and "we want financial innovation like those south of the border". I remember those days well.
