are you a hometown tourist?

posted by missmsian

We drop thou$and$ to travel overseas, often overlooking the fact that the biggest adventures might exist in our backyards. I’ve lived in Toronto for almost 16 years, but still love taking a camera out and pretending to be a tourist.

Once, a guy spotted me snapping photos of a stalled streetcar–Toronto’s Red Rocket really is a unique red–and asked where I was visiting from.

“Nowhere; I live here,” I said.

He paused. “I hope you get some beautiful shots today.”
