Off hand, I'd say those pics are taken on the Gardener Expressway on the west side of downtown Toronto.

You sure know your city don't you Cornerguy, Yes those pictures were taken in Toronto, Ontario I have lots more, including some of the parade, but they take too long to download.

Don't you believe in thinking of the possibilities or circumstances that may NOT have allowed visits to parks and waterfalls. There is no denying Canada is a beautiful country but like ANY other country, there are beautiful parks and landscapes to see. I took pictures of what I was able to see on my short trip there. Concrete, glass, parks or even waterfalls, the sites were still beautiful. There is beauty in concrete and glass as well.

That picture is right before you get off the Gardiner at Spadina where no less than fifteen homeless run up to your vehicle with a Tim Horton's cup in their hand begging you for money.

Beautiful? NOT

Funny I wasn't approached by any homeless people on my trip to Canada and downtown Toronto. What difference does it make, there are homeless people every where and believe it or not, you or I can be homeless and begging tomorrow. You have to open your mind and see the beauty in everything...even if it appears ugly to you. By the way, I was driving when that picture was taken I thought it was a lovely view so I snapped away.

Fair enough.

Nothing against the homeless. Just the fact that they are there.

Did you get out of your car in downtown Toronto at all?

I find it incredibly hard to believe you were not approached by a homeless person.

Even if you did not get out of your car.

With my mind wide open I can't see the beauty in being homeless
