I spotted this cute little window in one of the buildings at the U of Toronto a few weeks ago. They sure don't make windows like that anymore! And it even opens.

Eye-popping Colour

This GMC pickup would certainly get everyone's attention anywhere. I think it is a 1955 model and looks like it has never been driven in the winter! I love all of the chrome.

Just A Facade

This condo tower on Bloor St in the Annex neighbourhood was required to keep the facade of an older building that stood on the property and was the studio of architect John Lyle. The facade forms the entrance to yet another coffee shop as you can see from the sign placed subtly in the alcove to the left.

Law Office

This law office in a converted older home in the Annex neighbourhood is surrounded by newer buildings but outshines them with its lovely ivy-covered walls and its gardens. I'd love to see what the inside is like.

Blue Bird

Early this fall I happened upon a laneway which was having many of its garage doors painted with murals and I went back recently to see the final results. This is one of my favourites which was painted by the artist Muisca, a young woman who was there working on this when I first saw it.

Race You To The Top

These are the stairs leading from Davenport Rd up to Casa Loma. It is a steep hill and even the double decker tour buses that operate around town won't drive up the hill - you get on and off at the bottom and then walk. I thought the red bush at the half way mark looked beautiful against all the green around it. 100 steps to the top!

Storing For Winter

Our squirrels are very busy at this time of year burying a multitude of things for the winter ahead. This guy was running back and forth with seed pods digging them into the soil all over this lawn. This is of course one of black squirrels which are really Eastern Grey Squirrels with a black coat.
