Before startups, travel, and perpetual summer we lived for the weekend, in Toronto.

In a Canadian city with a strong winter grip, summer is transformative. Though the seasons are felt virtually everywhere, even in the tropics, there’s nothing like a hearty fifty-degree swing from freezing to hot.

In the few waking hours that we had together under the warm glow of the sun, we roamed with our tiny plastic cameras from the Lomography store on Queen, along Front, through St. James Park, up to Cabbage Town and onto the Island for the weekend.
