Flickr Friday: A Revival

For those of you who have been following my blog for a while now, first of all: A huge Thank You from my whole heart1; second of all: I need to revive this post series. I may not be a photographer, but I still enjoy taking photographs and I really enjoyed sharing them with you.

For this revival, I chose a photo from my flickr photostream that surprised me by getting 43 views for no reason that I could see2. It’s a shot I took while driving3 of the my beloved CN Tower.

Ever since I came back from living in Dublin last year I’ve been falling in love with Toronto more and more. I used to take it for granted4. And I think this photo is fitting for explaining this feeling of reviving an old love, or even an undiscovered love because that’s what it reminds me of.

The CN Tower though is not a standalone object in my memory. The CN Tower needs the Skydome5 the combination of the curved dome and the beacon to the right of it will always feel like home. I may have lived my adolescence in Dubai but no place has ever made me feel as good as Toronto does. And after being away for such a long time, I can tell you that nothing clears my head or makes me feel as at home as blogging does6.

What feels like home to you?

p.s. did I mention that he got in last night? Oh yes he did!!

p.p.s. last year, I did a memorial post about the lives we7 lost 8 years ago. I didn’t do one this year, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t take a moment8 to remember the fallen. But I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that 🙂

Footnotes:
  1. You guys are so great for my extremely self-critical ego[]
  2. or that anyone bothered to tell me in the comments – I’m not complaining, I’m just sayin’[]
  3. don’t worry, I never look at the camera when I’m drive-shooting I always maintain the Young Drivers’ 8 second rule… if you don’t know what that is I can’t help you. This footnote is too long as it is[]
  4. as you do when you grow up somewhere[]
  5. now called the Rogers Centre but it will always be the Skydome to me[]
  6. especially blogging about my favourite photos… that I’ve taken hehe[]
  7. yes, we. We the human race[]
  8. everyday in fact[]

  1. Lol @ the footnotes comments. I can understand that. I guess that’s why i haven’t started using them yet 😉

    Really liking that picture, it’s got a good feel to it. I’m also glad your’e reviving Flickr Friday. It kind of reminds me of the good old, regular blogging days and maybe I’ll get back into it more now 😀

  2. Man, this post reminds me how much I need to invest in a Camera, because I think it could really add a lot to my blogs. As it is, whenever I need one, I have to borrow it from someone, which is a hassle, so I hardly ever do it.

    I know how you feel about Toronto too, because I feel similarly about where I live. Sometimes it really does take going away to realize how much you like something.

    So, can you actually go up to the top of the CN Dome and look over the city?

  3. @Erica: It’s funny you should say something about the footnotes because they actually annoy me sometimes. Because ever since I started using them I can’t stop… I even use them when I’m speaking which makes it even more difficult to keep track of! Also, I can’t believe we’ve known each other for so long!

    @Miss Tique: Thank you! I hope I get to give it a whirl sometime 🙂

  4. @Reggie I like your shot. You should try kontain.com sometime.

    @Erica I do the same with the footnotes, but my wacky mind has always loved them 🙂

  5. Have I ever mentioned that I adore your footnotes? They were really annoying at first (at first being when I first discovered your blog, nearly 2 years ago) but I have grown to love them. Sometimes I save them until I get to the bottom for a treat.
