Caleb's awesome glasses--a gift from Dr. R. Favorite random comment from a guy on the street: "Dude, you look like a mix between Harry Potter and Tom Cruise!" Priceless.
The glorified trash bags you have to wear to go on a boat ride to the Falls didn't like Caleb. It simultaneously tried to suffocate and devour him, until after a long struggle with the intensity of that between Beowulf and Grendel, he emerged the victor:
Us with Niagara Falls and Buffalo, NY to our backs. I was thrilled to actually gaze across at New York--it was the closest I've ever felt to NYC!
On the waterfront in downtown Toronto.
One of my favorite pictures from the trip. Old reflected in the new.
Loved that the word "ideas" came out right next to my head. Caleb "set that up". ;)
A lighthouse on the island a ferry ride from downtown TO. And of course, a little experimentation with color accent...
We got to meet Thucydides! It was quite an honor. After enjoying his work "History of the Peloponnesian War" in school last year, it was nice to finally put a face with the name.
The following is "art" from the Royal Ontario Museum that we visited. Yes, there's a guy who gets paid to doodle cartoons on the wall of an art gallery. Who knew.
