Mosaic Monday - A Day in the City

Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Today is sunny, but very cold.
 The temperature is -33 C with the wind chill.
 Brrrrr!
On Saturday, Val from Gardening in a Sandbox and I went
on a field trip with our Photo club, here
to the Distillery District in Toronto.
The conditions were sun, snow, clouds, wind and cold.


These are a few of the photos I took throughout the day.

I was given an older Mac computer from my youngest son and
have been playing with its' photo editing programs.
 This is my first mosaic and post using the system.
 A hugh learning curve for this computer illiterate gal.

I am joining Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
Stop by and visit the beautiful mosaics.

Take care and enjoy your week!

The pictures are great! Seems to me you're a very fast learner. I think your whole club is brave to get out in that weather (I'd probably never get a picture, it would take me too long to take my gloves off first ;>)...

I love the tones of your mosaic and especially the tree lined sidewalk. The rounded corners of the mosaic are very cool!

That's a great first attempt of using your mac. The effect is different. I've been to Downtown Toronto some 2 decades ago. I remember that tower.

Ebie said...

Those buildings are beautiful!

Good luck with your MAC!

Jen,
Wonderful photos and a great mosaic. Love the lines.

Your quilt is beautiful. I have a real hard time working with just two colors but when the quilt is done, it is elegant.

Have a nice week.

I just don't know how you folks endure such cold temps! My daughter lives in up-state NY and told me last night the temp (without wind chill) was -15 F. We were in the single digit yesterday but will be warming tomorrow.

Your photos are beautiful. Lovely mosaic!

Hi Jen, how are you? Love your photos and love your mosaic. I think you have hidden computer talents! :) I've been to Toronto, but only in the summer. It's a wonderful city to explore.

Have a great week! – g
