Whatever floats your boat...

Was in Tah-ran-ah on business, looking like a hick from the sticks shooting video. *wink*

Amazingly... no one was killed.

Bay and Front, 1904 and 2011.

Oh so you're in Ontario. For some reason, I thought it was Quebec. (Sorry. Not paying attention.)

 

I love your pacing and editing in all of your stuff, Marie. You're very good at it. This gives the feeling of the city being raised from the debris. I hadn't known about the fire of 1904. San Francisco, of course, burned in 1906, and almost half of Berkeley burned to the ground in 1923. It seems like fire, absolutely horrible as it is, makes for a kind of ecological succession  for cities just as it does in nature.

@NJ Naw... you were paying attention. I split my time between Ontario and Quebec. My videos come from both provinces. =-) The Toronto fire was no where near the scale of San Francisco or Berkeley.

In editing, thank you, I seem to be developing a personal style with this challenge. haha

Rising from the ashes... I wish they would stop the high-rising along the waterfront. Hadn't been to TO in years and was shocked at how the views are now only accessible to the rich. *mumble*swear*grumble*

 

@Pyper OMG Pizza!!! Food of the gods! Yum!

WOW. That is amazing.

...and YES, you are developing a very distinctive and attractive editing style, Miss Marie.

I'm SO glad you jumped into this challenge.

Marie, loved how you got the old time footage in there.  Gave it a flash-documentary feel with the music.
