October 18, 2018. Another early morning preparing slides, then I gave the second of my talk today. I spent some time getting all the audio and video uploaded, went to the losing reception, then went for a walk around the city taking photos - the polarized lens really brings out the night shots. Finally a couple beer at the Rex to celebrate a week well done. https://flic.kr/p/29sEvyE

Morning

Image
October 17, 2018. The view outside my hotel window. Spent the morning preparing my talk, then I attended a session and after gave my talk, then dashed back to the hotel room to interview George Siemens, then made it an early night. https://flic.kr/p/2c9DsN7

The Gardiner

October 16, 2018. This is a view of the underside of the Gardiner Expressway at Yonge Street. This was Day One of the conference, and I attended some sessions, but I also had to go to OCADU to retrieve my lost lens cap (though on the bright side I got a great polarized filter for cheap in the interim). Mostly, though, I was focused on making slides and preparing my talk. https://flic.kr/p/2c9CSnJ

Scarborough

October 15, 2018. Another day locked in my hotel room (Travelodge by Wyndham Toronto East, in Scarborough), working. This was the view from my window, but the window was so dirty I went downstairs to get a decent photo. I also transferred hotels today, moving to the Westin Harbour Castle midday. Other than that, I didn't see daylight. But I got my report done. https://flic.kr/p/2cedAHK

Markham

Image
October 15, 2018. I spent the day locked in my hotel room working on my report. In the evening I drove up Markham Road to Markham Village and explored the area (I had seen it on the drive in and was intrigued). This is a storefront art studio where people can come, learn to paint, and paint with other people. https://flic.kr/p/2cedjiF

OCADU

Image
October 13, 2018. The beginning of a very busy week in Toronto. Drove from my hotel in Scarborough to Lawrence Station, then took the subway downtown to help the OCADU-IDRC celebrate its anniversary. Sadly it was not in this OCADU building (so I still haven't been in it) but just a few doors down. https://flic.kr/p/2aQm8sB
