2010 Paralympics ~ Weekend Reflection #24

Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, David C Only and paralympian Jeff Adams
Yesterday I went to Toronto City Hall to watch the lighting of the Torch for the 2010 Paralympics which will begin in Vancouver on March 12.  The day was perfect unfortunately the media hype was minimal so the crowds were small however no less noisy.
City hall has a great ice skating rink so people had the opportunity to try Sledge Hockey...such fun!
(The photo was taken at 1 p.m. unfortunately the rink is in the shadow of the highrise towers.)
I took my time heading home and enjoyed what was around me!
The Delta Chelsea
Downtown Toronto is a feast for the senses on a sunny day!
For other great reflections why not join James at Newtown Area Photo
and remember all photos can be clicked on for more detail.

Your pictures seem to capture buildings within a building. Very nice. And I learned something new today about Sledge Hockey. Thanks.

The Paralympics promise more excitement! The Torch arrived in Victoria yesterday...and there is snow in the forecast. So hopefully, the venues will be good for the competitors.

Super photos, as always!

I'm sorry to see that the press didn't give a great send-off to those going to the paralympics. Shame on the media for that.

The reflection shot is awesome, Carolyn!

Yes, the media is not working very hard to keep the public interest hight for the 2010 Paralympics.

I'm enjoying your shots of Toronto.
