影狀 For whom the Bell Tolls, Bay Street Downtown Toronto Summer 2008

The shape of the bell tower reminded me of the movie starred by Garry Cooper and Inglid Bergman. How could a man forget the wet eyes of Inglid and the mortal sounds of the bell...
For Whom the Bell Tolls is a novel by Ernest Hemingway published in 1940. It tells the story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an anti-fascist guerilla unit during the Spanish Civil War.

傳說的至尊 Stingray- Corvette Club of Ontario, 2009 Canadian Intl Autoshow Feb 18 2009

I never forget the feeling when I first saw the Stingray in 1981 in California. It was my first trip to US and now I see that it was kind of cultural shock for me to see the very American style of the sports car. What a design, sound and the tires which couldn't be wider.

車車車 Toronto Autoshow, 2009 Canadian International Autoshow, Metro Convention Center & Roger Center Feb 18 2009

There were not many people for the show maybe because it's just week day Wednesday or mainly because there was no mood of welcoming the autoshow under this disastrous economic situation. However still it was exciting to feel and touch the leading edge technologies and innovative designs for the most common necessity.
