Cityscape – Toronto

You never truly appreciate something unless you take the time to do so. Yesterday I decided to be a “Tourist In My Own City” and explore downtown Toronto. Sure, it was was the second-last day of my “staycation” but I wouldn’t have spent it any other way! To make a long story short (because it was an 8 hour day) here’s the route I took: Started at: Yonge/College Headed to: Yonge/Dundas (had breakfast at Pickle Barrel) Walked down to: Queen St. Walked past: University Avenue (made a pit stop here for a while as it was getting extremely hot.

We recently announced changes to the Media Manager, which is designed to make it easier to upload images, audio, and video files to your site and edit their attributes.

Tiled Galleries If you haven’t already, we hope you’ve tested out our tiled mosaic-style layout galleries, which showcase your…

Photo Shoot with Rebecca

Today I had my first ever-official photo shoot!! It was fantastic! Can you tell that I’m really excited?? I had great weather, natural lighting and my subject was amazing to work with! Here’s a sneak peek! Rebecca is a fellow photographer who previously shot some amazing photos of me earlier this year (Click here to see the photo)! She will be using one of the shots taken today for her own photography website. Check out her work by clicking here. Although the photos were taken on my Nikon, I had to of course Instagram and play around with some filters (not too much though as the natural lighting really adds to the depth of the images).
