Toronto, ON, May 2008
About this photo: It's Thematic Photographic's big week, and we're sharing big-themed pictures all week long. Click here to share your own outsized views of the world.
Toronto is a neat place, and it gets even neater the closer you get to the water. As the city continues to figure out what its waterfront neighborhoods should look like, fascinating juxtapositions between everyday life and a working Great Lakes port make for fun photography. Have fun with this one.

Your turn: Got a snappy caption for this photo? Click the comment link and share it. (Instructions here.) That's all there is to it. I'll announce the grand victor next week. And speaking of victors...

About last week's photo of our son skittering across the beach: I think the little man will be pedal to the metal well into adulthood. As the planet looks for new sources of energy, I'd like to suggest him, as he seems to manufacture it just by being himself. He's a true delight, and your captions suggested the very same thing. This week's honorable menschens go to:
  • Robin: "Shady proposition." (Along with wishes for her daughter's fast and full recovery from oral surgery.)
  • SRP: "James and the Giant Beachball."
  • Stephen: "Going coastal."
Pamela wins it with "Noah's arc." Her blog, The Dust Will Wait, is a remarkably rich window into the life of a wife and grandmother who chooses to look more closely at the world than most. It's a vision I'm sure you'll enjoy.

I can't think of a caption (I'm not very good at it anyway), but this picture reminds me of my Dad... He went to the Isle of Man by boat yesterday for a few days and the seas were pretty rough!

If you are trying to tell us that picture has not been photoshopped. You're full of ship.

"I knew I shoulda made that left turn at Albuquerque."

I didn't go big in size this time, just in price per pound.

I love water front photos! Big surprise, huh? For this one I call it "Captains' cul de sac"
