My only, and the only, existence on my instagram account. Courtesy of Mom, working out her photo skills.
Fall is so so beautiful up here, I feel lucky for being in Canada at this time of the year. It brings all sorts of emotions back with a touch of nostalgia. #toronto #canada (at Earl Bales Park)

Lighting 101: Teaching mom how to make the available light work for her, while we walked through the autumny forest for one last time before I disappear in the mid-east. 
Expect her to appear on instagram soon! #mom #familytime #thanksgiving #toronto (at Earl Bales Park)

So there are days we have typical visitors at the WPP exhibit in toronto and there are days that we have not-so-typical visitors glowing shine to our day, like these kindergarten kids, some of the most engaged students that I’ve had.
As they finished their walk through of the exhibit, I asked them: “did you have a favorite photo?” Three of them excitedly  and loudly replied: “THE SWIMMING!” (Referring to @habjouqa ‘s photos from gaza)
Also one told me with an amazed face: “There are photos from ALL OVER the world,” and I wondered how big is the world to a 5 year old boy :-) (at Brookfield Place)

Sunday morning, mom remains in bed with a bad cold that she caught over night. Taking care of her with lots of soup and honey lemon ginger tea, like she used to do when we were kids :-) #mom #toronto #canada

A brief moment that I caught a smile, rarely happening these days, on mom’s face. #toronto #canada
