Rusty Toronto


A very special map of Toronto

This is a detail of of a much larger map of the Toronto rivers, creeks and park system at the Evergreen Brick Works. It’s a wonderful place to visit, between the re-purposed industrial buildings that produced the bricks used to build the city now harbouring artists’ workshops and the naturalized adjacent quarry – lots to see.

If you’re a Torontonian, it’s a must-see place!

Canadian Photogs Now Officially Own the Copyright to All of Their Photos


Great news fellow Canadian photographers, we now own copyright to all of our pictures, commissioned or not!

The development comes as a result of Canada major copyright reform bill (Bill C-11) taking effect this morning. One of the stated goals of the new copyright law is to, “give photographers the same rights as other creators.”

This will make any Swiss person homesick instantly.
