Infill

I can't remember what the building on this spot was before but this nice modern home has sprung up recently. It is quite a contrast to the typical Annex style that you can see beside it but I like it.

Good Eats

This mural is found in the laneway on the side of the Dirty Bird Chicken & Waffles restaurant on Bloor St. I've never been in but apparently they serve northern-fried chicken with maple sugar seasoning on waffles as a speciality. It sounds good. This is another mural by Elicser who seems to be one of the most prominent muralists in the city now.

Hidden Modern

On one of the nicest streets in the Annex neighbourhood filled with lovely large heritage homes this modern home has appeared. Interestingly though, it is hardly visible because its small front garden is so well reflected in the windows that it seems barely visible. It is just a few houses away from Margaret Atwood's home.

Red

Male Cardinals always make a fine subject for a pic and we are lucky that they stay here year round as they look so nice in the snow!

Charming

I always enjoy seeing this house as I drive through the Chaplin Estates neighbourhood. This is the side entrance which I find so charming with the arch and the greenery. The front is nice but it is this view that I really like.

A Cool Ride

Among the vehicles at the vintage car event at the Veterans Centre at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre was this very cool pickup truck. It is a 1949 Mercury and is in pristine condition!

Fierce

During an Open Streets event in September when parts of Bloor St & Yonge St (2 major downtown streets) were closed to vehicular traffic for part of the day, this Taekwondo space had these cool blow-up figures out in front of their space. They look like they are ready for anything!
