Great photos. Really enjoyed them. Makes me want to go to Toronto.  :)
May the Force be with you.

Impressive shots - not sure i would have got them  :o

My fear of heights is only abated when inside a plane and driving over the QE Bridge at Dartford in the fast lane  :2funny:

And yet, in younger days i appear to have climbed up some fairly hefty cranes and crawled onto the job to get pictures of 'my train' i was working - wonder what changed?  :-\

When you are younger you are willing to take risks regardless of the consequence's, but as you get older, you start to calculate those risks and if it doesn't come out in your favour forget it.  8)

I know my age starts with a 5 now, but you don't have to make my age status so obvious  :D

Impressive! We were going to go to Toronto next year, but then we found out how much the hotels cost, even the 'cheap' ones. £300 per night is more than we are prepared to pay, so we're going to Beijing instead :)
