We have passed the winter solstice and the days are once again getting longer. Yet once again it doesn't look like Toronto will be getting a white Christmas :( except around 7pm every night in the Eaton Centre.

Caught these giant snowflakes in Allan Gardens

He probably means there's lots and lots of those shots. I like them personally, streetcar in the snow, trying to get one myself in fact, but if you're after original ... not so much.

Here's BlogTO's Photo of the Day for January 16th. Yay me!

In this case is there any place in Toronto or anything characteristic to this place that hasn't been appearing in a shot? I call rip-off a deliberate act of imitating someone else's work, which btw I've seen it happening here on the forum (like sitting in the same spot, waiting for the same occurrence and using the same settings). I haven't check with anyone's images. I know, I was the only guy out there, in a weather you wouldn't let a dog out, trying to frame the best I can and find a story for my shot. I'm asking now Dimitry - how many of your photos you personally consider being original and bringing something different?

It looks like Chris didn't get the joke and me neither. I totally forgot about that debate. Then we're cool on this one :)

On the topic of originality, here's a shot of the Gooderham Building in Toronto. Nobody has ever taken a pic of that before. Especially in the snow!
