Foggy Idea

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

One rare foggy day in Toronto. The thick fog lasted from early morning till about noon. This site used to be Psychiatric Hospital, now they let all the patients run loose (it is cheaper) and converted the buildings to Humber College.

Secret Photographer Contest - Natural Monochrome - 3rd Place (May 2012)

VMC contest - Foggy - 1st place March 2014.

enroqueff was inspired to write a poem!!!!!!

Tú me llevastes: /Ando la vereda /entre la niebla /que siempre acompaña /este destino /que me atenaza /y me atormenta, /duro camino /que vive mi vida /y mi existencia /torcida niebla /que en mi mente queda./

You are in my head: / I walk the sidewalk / in the fog / that accompanies / this destination / that grips me / and my sorrow, / rough road / living my life / and my existence / twisted fog / in my mind.

Wow, you even know his songs!!!

Gordon L. voice is not what it used to be, but after a brush with death, he still performs.

Few times, I saw him walking in downtown Toronto.
