Chickadee

One of my favourite birds is the Chickadee. They are so cute and friendly and at this time of year you can easily find them around the feeder.

Pink Door

It was the deep pink door that first attracted my attention to this house and then I realized that what looked like a tiny place actually had a huge addition on the back making this quite a large house. And the fact that there are 2 mailboxes means that there are at least 2 living spaces in it. I like their round window and the heart on the door too.

Leafy Stairs

I'm back in one of the ravines along the Humber River. I didn't head up these stairs so have no idea where they end up. Might be fun to check out in the winter when there is snow - or it may be too slippery!

World Famous Bargain Centre

More of the signs from Honest Ed's showing a bit of the sense of humour that he had. I intend to go back at night before it closes at the end of the month and get a night shot of the big signs at the corner of Bathurst & Bloor. The 4.5 acre property that includes the store and many heritage buildings along Markham St are to be developed with several towers of varying sizes as well as parks and the renovation of some of the heritage buildings.

The Photographer

I spotted this woman at the top of the stairs leading to Casa Loma as she was taking pics of the CN Tower in the distance. She was dressed rather elegantly compared to most tourists who have climbed the 110 steps to the top. As you can see it was a bit hazy that day so I'm not sure how her pics turned out.

More Good Fun

I showed you a utility box a while ago with exactly the same design on it as this one but I'm showing it from a different angle. The artist, Gary Taxali, must use a good stencil or vinyl sheeting to get such an exact fit on the box. I found this one quite far from the usual locations for these so it is good to see that the city is spreading the art out into the whole city.

Deco Doorway

This wonderful little doorway is on the side of a small rather boring factory building but when it was built someone made an effort to make the entrance interesting. So many times this would have been an uninteresting flat steel door but here we have this nice deco detailing. Love it!
