Yea, I guess in this way it is much easier to share and get directions to the point of interest

if you want to take photos at the AGO you need to be a ninja

they got security in almost every single room worth photographing and cameras everywhere, so even if you try to sneak a shot they may nail you.

i got an email from them stating that during the grand opening they could not handle the load so they lightly enforced it, and now that the volumes are down to normal they will exercise their full power to control photography.

so

are you a ninja?

how big an area around toronto do you want to generate??? It could get pretty big in a hurry.

Also, if you are thinking directions, why don't we make a GPX file with waypoints. I'm sure enough of us have a GPS to lead us to the great spots.

Hahaha then I would recommend you to pay a visit there they got some interesting stuff.

Lowell Goudge & Clicker: I am actually thinking something like points of interest, and something unique, other than normal scenery. I don't really have a GPS, that's why you see I create my map in Google Map.

How about a google map? With that there are automatic picassa photos included, and openly editable maps can be added to by other users, e.g. blue points like the ones I've added here:

Google Maps -- Pentax Forums Toronto

Edit: caveat, you have to sign into google to see photos embedded on the map, even if you don't have a picassa account.
Edit2: nevermind the first edit, it's under the "More..." button. Or sign in and enable the picassa widget on the left.
Edit3: I is teh stupid tonight, didn't see the link to your map vizjerei..

Dam i've lived here too long, it's all "normal" scenery to me LOL

If you like to hike, you could try the Rouge Valley trails?

I see you have Crawford lake marked. The Rockford Conservation area in Rockford, ON is about the same distance out of the city and an interesting place to wander around with a camera. Walking path all the way around the lake, a couple of caves, an old mill dam and abandoned mill foundation and some interesting geological formations.
GRCA - GRCA Conservation Areas - Rockwood -

I haven't been there for years but the raptors at the Mountsburg conservation area were interesting as a kid, they also have walking paths: Conservation Halton

Another potentially interesting location is the Halton Region museum and Kelso lake: Halton Region Museum - Halton Region

If you are interested in trains the Radial Railway is worth checking out (maybe a model shoot on a hundred year old train car?): OERHA

There was a couple of place that were favourites of mine a 100 years ago. The Old Mill, I think it was in Mimico.

And, Mt. Pleasant Rd, including from above, using the Sherbourne subway back entrance.
