N5-cam III: Toronto by Night · I vis­it­ed my broth­er in Toron­to and we went out to drink & talk & eat on a cold evening; I didn’t take an ac­tu­al camera-as-such, but that didn’t keep good pic­tures from ar­riv­ing in front of me, so I snapped away with the Nexus 5. Thus, an­oth­er test of the hy­poth­e­sis that a mo­bile­cam can re­place a “serious” pock­et­cam ...

Going, Going, Gone · In Toronto’s Globe and Mail, a Wil­liam Gib­son el­e­gy (prob­a­bly to van­ish be­hind the pay­wal­l), lament­ing cities’ crush­ing their his­to­ry and our mem­o­ries with­out even notic­ing. Right here in Van­cou­ver we’re see­ing it hap­pen in re­al time, in months not decades. The Cana­da Line project is dig­ging a seven-storey-deep ditch down the mid­dle of what once was a thriv­ing com­mer­cial street that runs more or less up and down the city’s prime merid­i­an. While we crack bit­ter jokes about spe­ci­a­tion set­ting in among the ro­dents ei­ther side of the Big Ditch, and mutually-incomprehensible di­alects among the hu­man­s, the mer­chants aren’t laugh­ing at al­l. Read The Vil­lage a Train Ate in The Ty­ee (an ex­cel­lent pub­li­ca­tion). That’s my vil­lage, and we’ve been reg­u­lars at the restau­rant in the pic­ture; Si­mon has cleaned up more than one bowl of miso soup spilled by our kid­s. The lo­cals say no­body told us what we were let­ting our­selves in for, and that’s true, but it seems ir­rel­e­vant now. So sad.
