Exploring Metroscapes: Announcing a Change in Direction

Greetings!

Metroscapes has historically been a bit of a personal soapbox of mine, a place to vent about transit and other city issues. The posts were usually fueled by concern or frustration, so the content was usually negative, sometimes repetitive, and often sporatic.

However, following the lead of some other Toronto tweeps, I have been doing a lot of storytelling through Twitter as of late. It’s now a regular hobby of mine to spend my weekends exploring corners of Toronto (and sometimes a bit beyond the border) that I haven’t been to yet. These usually involve ravines and the infrastructure within, across and under them, but it can also bleed into the concrete jungle, or get deep into the thickest of the intact natural areas.

It has actually been an enlightening exercise. I have come to realize what my passions are in life, and what I am driven to do: simply put, I like wandering around, exploring natural and built environments, and the intersections between them.

I am a nomad with a passion for exploring metroscapes.

With that in mind, I am refreshing this website to organize my walks of Toronto, doing additional research on some items, and sharing more of the pictures I take along the way. I will be doing this for past walks, and going forward. Looking forward to sharing my adventures with you.
