Signs, Signs - Monkey Business

Andy | Wednesday, May 30, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

This is the newest shop to open for business in my neighbourhood. In my opinion the young people that work here are modern day artist that use skin instead canvas for their art work.


The door handle also caught by eye. I'm linking to Lesley's Signs, Signs.

Goose Parade

Andy | Saturday, May 26, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

I live close to the water so I have lots of opportunities to photograph life on the bay. I spotted these geese and thought they were trying to organize themselves to do some synchronized swimming.


I watching for a few more minutes. They got their act together and formed a straight line. The only thing missing is Esther Williams.

Man In The Kayak

Andy | Monday, May 21, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

I was out exploring the north end of the bay when I spotted this sight on the water. When he got close to me we had an interesting conversation.


Comparing our notes on what wildlife we had seen in the area both of us discovered that we had seen creatures that the other hadn't. This is Jason and I have the feeling I'll be seeing more of him.

Trafalgar Castle School

Andy | Sunday, May 06, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

The first time I saw this building it just grabbed my eyes. Driving down a residential street in Whitby it just suddenly appears when you don't expect to see something out of the ordinary.


The main doors are known as The Lion Entrance. In 1859, this imposing structure was originally built for Nelson Reynold's, the sheriff of the county and took three years to complete. A mock-Elizabethan castle even has a legendary "hidden chamber" and a secret tunnel to complete it's reputation as a true castle of old. At the time of my visit the school was closed and I never got the chance to explore the interior.


In 1879, it came into the possession of the Methodist Church who turned it into the Ontario Ladies' College which changed names in 1979 to Trafalgar Castle School and is recognized as one of the finest private girls school's in the province.
