So the wunderkind has returned from the Great White North… a while ago. The trip was great and since then so much has happened! I’ve got a new laptop, and although putting my photos on my computer is ridiculously quick with the SD card reader, it took a while for me to transfer my photos to flickr because our wireless didn’t really work and the days kept flying by.

Some highlights from my trip:

Nature!

I had decided to do a photo friday on my own a while ago, but I guess there’s very little original thought these days and a group of bloggers is also doing a photo friday. Slim Shaney kindly commented on my last post inviting me to join the others.

This week’s theme: water
My friend Jenny’s toes touch the ocean for the first time in New Jersey. A little late night detour during our trip to NYC in the summer of 2007.

So last week was super super busy! I finished moving, then there was Canada Day, then wedding prep for my friend’s wedding. I did manage to take some time for a photo stroll with a friend of the groom, Craig MacBride. Shortly afterward I put him to work helping me with wedding prep, scanning old photos of the bride for a slideshow.

There are some interesting things in my new hood.

Then Sunday I went to Trinity Bellwoods Park for a nice crafternoon, chatted and crocheted, and enjoyed some iced tea from tealish, which was nice and refreshing.

There are probably many many weirder foods in Japan than what I’m showing here, and I did not photograph all the food I ate or saw (or wasn’t willing to eat!). However, I did really enjoy eating in Japan, and I think my favourite food of all was brown rice with gomashio. Oh wait, no there was also the miso vegetables that Mune’s grandfather made… and the Saba sashimi in Fukuoka… and and… oh it was all very delicious.

Least favourite food I ate – jellyfish.

I should have taken photos of all the novelty foods. Next time!

By popular demand! actually only requested by Craig, but maybe others will appreciate my photos…
Since it is almost summer, I thought I’d remind us a bit of winter so we can appreciate the warm weather.

The next 2 are taken with the Lomo Fisheye camera, the first is in Toronto on Dovercourt Road, and the second is in the Yukon, at Jackson Lake just outside of Whitehorse.
