a while ago (after the bombings in London), a lot of the heavy garbage bins were removed from toronto subway stations apparently in fear of terrorist threats. So it was interesting when I found them by accident while biking in tommy thompson park. the pattern of some of the bins shows which stations they belong too. the spacing magazine's famous subway buttons can be used as a guide! and my bike can be seen in the background!

speaking of spacing magazine, they're hosting a panel in this weekend's word on the street festival called blogging toronto on sunday 25th at 4:15 in the beyond the page tent, located near the south east corner of the site (near Wellesley and Queen's Park Circle). On the panel are Globe and Mail music writer Carl Wilson, photoblogger Sam Javanrouh (that's me!), Reading Toronto's Robert Ouelette, and Torontoist's Sarah Lazarovic. Spacing creative director Matt Blackett will lead panelists in a discussion on how blogs are helping shape the city and create new communitIes.
