Yonge Street downtown Aurora feels different when the sun shines from one side at the sunset, and from other at the sunrise. Yet, one day, I am on the mission to catch the sunny day moment in the mid-day. My second visit to the site where the Old Library was standing. Different views opened up. …

The Aurora Sports Hall of Fame (ASHOF) ongoing exhibit at the Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex (SARC) is definitely a collaboration by many. One would need a flowchart to figure out who is who, and who did what, but in the end does it really matter? This intriguing Aurora sports history exhibit at the SARC walk …

When driving further South on Yonge Street, Aurora, Ontario; away from the Wellington Street intersection, the street views change. In the view there are mostly individual commercial old Auroran houses. Last weekend, while travelling to Richmond Hill, I was amazed how big the icicles on those building were getting.  But then I switched to look out …

The weekend is already here. Are you ready for some skating or tobogganing? A friendly note from the weatherman, there may be more snow coming our way.

Warning, some readers may find the following a little disturbing. While we were finishing up eating our late breakfast at a local restaurant, a Starling accidentally flew into the window where we were sitting. After the impact, the Starling dived involuntarily, face first and wings spread, into the snow. At first it felt like a …

It is an observation, but I think that Town of Aurora is applying road salt a little excessively. Salt, in general is a good ingredient that enriches various aspects of our lives; however like everything else, high concentrations of salt can be detrimental to us and the environment, road salt especially for the latter.

By Andrew Zuliani, Aurora ON. My name is Andrew and I am photographer based in Aurora, Ontario. A few days ago, I was frustrated, I could not take any good looking photos or videos. I’ve been spending a lot of time on Instagram and Facebook looking at pictures of famous photographers who have a fan-base filled …

I thought perhaps it was time to return to some of the places in Aurora I had not visited in a while. It is hard to believe that almost seven years passed by since my last visit to the Aurora Cemetery. It was that many years ago I was tipped off about the location in …
