I just returned from BMO Field in Toronto where Toronto FC was playing FC Dallas. It was a relatively unremarkable match except for the weather. And as I type, thunder continues to rumble around me.

There was a 30 minute stop part-way through the first half because of weather. After the break, officials resumed play with 10-15 minutes remaining in the half. Rain started to fall in thick, heavy drops and lightning began to strike in the far distance. At halftime, fans were asked to leave their seats and find safety below the grandstand because a storm was fast approaching.

Here's a video of the storm from where I stood:

Officials eventually postponed the match until further notice.

Cottage Project 2011: Part III

I have recently been posting short videos I created for my series: "Cottage Project 2011". My intention was to collect video of various iconic imagery from around a cottage and present them in short videos.

Here's one called "Lake", and another called "Lake Fireworks". You can also check out last year's collection of pictures called "Cottage Project 2010".

To close the series, here's a short video called "Camp Fire":

Cottage Project 2011: Part I

I recently returned from my family's annual cottage vacation. There's a span of a couple of weeks when the weather is glorious providing a wonderful opportunity to capture images. I'll be posting short videos I created that are part of series called "Cottage Project 2011" until the end of August. (You can also check out my blog post with the still pictures from "Cottage Project 2010".)

Here's the first called "Lake".
