TTC Subway Photo

July 25, 2010 Leave a comment

I was standing around in a Toronto Subway station waiting for the train, and playing with my digital camera. I started taking pictures of the advertisements on the wall. When the train came, I snapped a picture of the front of the train as it came into the station. The picture was unremarkable and poorly lit, so I deleted it.

After, I got onto the train, the conductor came on the PA system and made an announcement. “Riders, if you’re going to take photos of the train as it comes into the station, please please please give us some signal so we can make sure our hair is combed!”

A TTC driver that makes humour out of being photographed. Now there’s a surprise.

Crime and Safety in Toronto

December 29, 2009 Leave a comment

Despite the various rambling threads about safety in Toronto, the fact is that all kinds of things go down in this city.

Earlier this month, my cousin was actually car-jacked in Toronto by a gun-toting crack-smoker who forced him to drive around for an hour and make Interac purchases so he could get the Interac cash-back money.

Scary stuff.
