Transit Shots 2

Aww yeah, TTC stops! Can you guess the name of the featured stations?

Actually, I don't remember the name of the non-obvious stations. If you know the answers, feel free to share them!

I really like the outdoor TTC stations. You get a breath of fresh air and it looks fresh early in the morning when few people are there. The only downsides are having to deal with the heat, cold, and extreme Canadian weather.

You may have noticed by now: my transit shots are mostly of stations. The reason is my phone-- it can not take picture of moving vehicles. I tried. It does not do justice to vehicles. Taking pictures of moving buses and trains will need more planning than taking pictures of stations. I will set that activity aside for the future.

Next stop: bus stops.

Transit Shots 1

You know what best time to take pictures of transit stops? Either early in the morning or at night. Here's my collection of Viva bus stops:

The quality of the photos are low because I took the pictures with my phone. It's kind of strange and inconvenient to carry a camera to work when work doesn't require a camera. Maybe one day, I will spend the morning or night parading between transit stations and stops.

Thank you for all the Squirrels

I know I'm nuts about squirrels, but I'm not that nuts about them. Thank you for the squirrels though. :)

Oh hey, it's October already?!

Hello everyone!

It's October 4 and Nuit Blanche is tonight. I initially wanted to attend but I have work this evening and tomorrow morning. The smart and healthiest choice would be to skip Nuit Blanche and spend whatever time I have between today and tomorrow on sleep. From the looks of the Nuit Blanche 2014 website, there are many more interactive artworks this year. If you end up going to Nuit Blanche, please tell me how it goes. Even better if you have pictures.

I'm still in the middle of figuring out my life, so I spent September exploring a few jobs. On my free evenings, I checked out an anime recommended to me by a friend: Oregairu, also known as Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru or My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU.

I thought it would be a typical romantic comedy, but it was more of an enjoyable anti-romcom romcom. Every moment where I thought it would follow a romantic comedy scenario, the main character finds a way to dodge it. It took me awhile to get into it because I'm used to typical romantic comedies. The anime is worth watching for its strategic methods to avoid typical romantic comedy scenarios and its subtle approach to show relationship developments. If you ever have the time, you should check it out.

In other news, there aren't as many posts on my blog these days because of job exploration. I'm learning more about myself and my abilities at different jobs--it's a good experience to power through while you're still young. I think I will be settled with what I want to do by next March.
