Panorama, Woodbine Beach


My Nexus 5's Photos app stitched together this panorama of Toronto's Woodbine Beach out of individual photos I had taken during last week's photo expedition to the Beaches. It did not do a bad job at all, I think, possible wonkiness in the west aside.

The greenhouse at Jewell's Country Market and Garden Centre in Marshfield, just outside Charlottetown's city limits, is eye-catching even outside of spring.

I had intended last night to walk down to the new Trillium Park, but I had forgotten it would be inaccessible on account of the Exhibition. Instead, I found myself walking west on the Humber Bay shores, through Marilyn Bell Park and up to Vimy Ridge Parkette as evening descended. I was a bit cool--I really should have worn a light jacket--but the light outside was superb and the calm sky above awesome.
