Happy Miniature Sunday, Toy-ronto Spooktacular edition! : )
It's time for my globular magic with some Halloween fun!

This is the October entry for my series of seasonal globular digi-magic upon our Toronto as seen from the Riverdale Park toward Broadview Avenue, filled with the cute buildings of lovely Greektown, the Byzantine-like church including.

Saw some flying pumpkins before? : ) Well here it is - a funny Origami Pumpkin Balloon Raid all over my Toy-ronto! : )

A note about origami: We recently have created a free Halloween addition (see its cover below) to our new "Oriland Balloon Ride" eBook - it contains special printable colour patterns for our Montgolfier Balloon (4-Module Envelope). Just to print patterns and fold a funny Pumpkin Balloon! : )
Note, the diagrams of folding the balloons are in "Oriland Balloon Ride" eBook.

Anything is possible. You can be told that you have a 90-percent chance or a 50-percent chance or a 1-percent chance, but you have to believe, and you have to fight.
– Lance Armstrong


Some of you may remember that my grandma was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year. She had a mastectomy and is all clear of cancer, knock on wood.

Did anyone see the special "Say Yes To The Dress" episode about Lori? I barely watch TV, but over the last few years whenever I had access to one, I managed to stumble on that show and always loved Lori & Monte. I just watched this morning... I definitely got misty-eyed by the end. They had a woman on who was renewing her vows, and she's been fighting various forms of cancer for almost 25 years.. I didn't even know that was possible. What a tremendous woman.. such an inspiration. It puts everything else into perspective.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM). Take care of yourself, ladies!

Autumn Lower Lewis River Falls

Via Flickr:
I have had this waterfall on my bucket list for some time now and finally after what seemed like driving forever visited this magical sight. I really like how this turned out and would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for the visit :)

A Lesson Learned (for the umpteenth time)

Via Flickr:
Always take some water shoes or sandals. When photographing waterfalls, you know you'll need them. Somehow, I never remember to take them.

Yesterday, I took my son for a photo trip to the Lewis River. We captured both Lower Lewis and Middle Lewis Falls, but ran out of time (and it started to rain pretty hard) before we could make it to Upper Lewis Falls. Some other time, I suppose.

This image looks best on black -- just type "L" or click on the image.
