St James Cemetery

St. James Cemetery - Canon T2i & Leica Elmarit-R 24mm f2.8.

Took Megan to the City Final Swimming Competition today. Her school would not dispatch two teachers to accompany her there as she was the only student in her school that made it to the final. Megan didn't win because she thought it was a false start. By the time she realized it, it was a good few seconds too late. She was so upset about it she didn't want to go to school for the rest of the day.

In any case, Rosedale Secondary School is nice, but there are no parking spaces nearby. I was forced to park at the other end of the bridge near the school. St. James Cemetery is at the corner of Parliament & Danforth, over looking the ravine and Don River. It's very beautiful place. St. James is the oldest operating cemetery in Toronto. It became the national historic site in 1990. This cemetery is closely linked to the magnificent "The Cathedral Church of St. James" on Church & King.

If you run out of place to photograph, St. James Cemetery is worth a visit.
