Dreamy Island

Thought I’d show you something different today. This is from the summer, at the Toronto Islands. I played with it in Lightroom to lower the clarity and up the contrast. I think it makes for something a bit out of the norm. Personally I like it but of course your mileage may vary.

Ironically, I made it to work today through the winter’s worst snow storm in record time. I arrive 45 minutes early, in fact. The trip home was just as uneventful. I wish all my rides could be as easy-peasy. I think the secret is to simply leave before everyone else does. I was up at 5:15 AM and on the road before 7:00 AM. I also carpooled, which meant riding in the carpool lane, a first for me. Most days this would be a dream come true but today made very little difference since everyone seemed to elect to stay home. I don’t care as long as it means getting home early. I even went for a beer with my carpool buddy after work.

Tomorrow’s Thursday and I suspect all those who took today off wil chose to go in tomorrow, making the roads busier than usual. It’ll be interesting to see if this proves true.

Anyway, hope you like the photo. And a big thanks to Regina for subscribing to my blog today.

    I work from home now — not a bad thing on a day like today, but it’s depressing to be trapped inside when the weather is nice.

    Very dreamy indeed, makes one want to reside there and that’s a good thing.
