Floral Bike Ring

This bike ring from the series on Bloor St designed by the students at Bloor Collegiate has the look of a flower to me or it could be the sun. I like it either way!

A Birdo Creature

I recently spotted a new Birdo mural. I can never figure out what the creatures he paints are meant to be but it is always fun to see one. And the colour is great to see in the middle of winter!

Forbidden

I took this pic a while ago in the lobby of a building along Queen St W just before the security guard told me that photography was forbidden in the building. So I didn't get the name of the artist but I do like the work.

Hangers for Two, Please

This looks like two pics put together but it is actually two bird feeders hanging off the same post with dual hangers. There is very little you can do to stop squirrels from getting at bird feeders and from the looks of these grey squirrels they have been eating a lot!

Osgoode Side View

This is a side view of yesterday's Osgoode Hall and it gives you an idea of the various additions that have occurred over the years. I just like to see the clock tower from Old City Hall peeking over the top surrounded by the newer buildings along Queen St W.

Osgoode Hall Through The Trees

In a city with as many trees as we have it is often impossible to get shots of buildings when the leaves are out so it is fun to get some winter shots. This view of Osgoode Hall on Queen St is totally hidden all summer but looks rather nice now with City Hall peeking over the top at us. Osgoode Hall houses the Law Society of Upper Canada as well as various courts and legal libraries and construction began in 1829 with many additions through the years. I showed a pic of the original section back in 2013 (HERE).

Vintage Records

I spotted this record store on Bloor St W in the same area as the bicycle rings I have been showing you. They have been open for almost 2 years and seem to have a good variety of vinyl & CDs judging from the on-line info I found. I didn't have time to wander in so will have to go back another day.
