wrapping up the year with the fresh oysters.., 'Auld Spot' Danforth Street Toronto Dec 30 2009

not a bad combination of side dishes..
very fresh oysters with a big stack of french fries..

i am getting more & more addicted to
these tiny little shells of oyster..
really really yummy..
with lemon drops, horse radish and Tabasco sauce.

Drink, Drink, Drink.. Pilgrimage of Bars with Jim & Fellas, 'Dora Keogh', 'Detroit', and 'The Auld Spot' Danforth Street Toronto Dec 23 2009

It was a decent start at the Irish Pub, Dora Keogh.
Couple of glasses of beers for me and Scotchs for Jim.

Then Jim and I went to Detroit where Chris was running..
And I started to try Jinns & Scotches as well as beers.
The intoxication process was quite fast & effective..

Finally we joined again at the Pub of Auld Spot
and enjoyed dishes of natural oysters
with another series of drinks..

Sharing year end spirit with lovely ladies sitting beside us..
I like the fresh natural oysters in Auld Spot
with lemon drops and hot sauce of Tabasco on it..

The photogenic couple of tonight.. :p
He was a professional photographer
working for National Geographics and celebrities..
Chris and his friend.. best pose of tonight.

Jim and the new face..

Two bottles of Bordeaux.. my Christmas present for Jim.

Running on Gardiner Expressway.., Downtown Toronto Dec 16 2009

i love to see and capture
the clear night line of the skyscrapers in town
with the sexy CN tower..

equipped with the extremely high ISO number of 12800
i could have the shots much clearer than with my old SLR
while I was running faster on the highway deep at night..

my cozy corner.. this evening at the bar.. , Dorah Keogh DanforthToronto Dec 17 2009

Sitting right in front of the fire place
feeling my face getting as reddish as the flame of the fire log
I don't need anything to ponder but my own existence
as a biological being still alive,
as a philosophical entity still thinking with sophistication,
and as an emotional animal still feeling & appreciating love..
though I don't believe in love anymore.. :p
