Winter Bench

Andy | Friday, January 31, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

Overlooking Lake Ontario, the cold air and the cold but warmer water meet causing a low lying formation of clouds over the water. Right at the moment the bench is reserved for a summer day.

Signs, Signs - Ed's

Andy | Wednesday, January 29, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

Honest Ed's is a discount store located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is named for its owner and founder, Ed Mirvish, who opened the store in 1948 and oversaw its operations for almost sixty years, until his death in 2007. He was a way ahead of Sam Walton and this was his one and only store. He also expanded into the live theatre business and brought many broadway shows to Toronto.

Cold Day On The Trail

Andy | Sunday, January 26, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

This is a small portion of the waterfront trail that is 1400 km (870 miles) long.
It stretches from the Town of Lakeshore on Lake St. Clair to the Quebec border, following the shores of Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River in Ontario, Canada. When I took this photo the temperature was -23°C or -9°F. I saw no cats, dogs or birds... just me and they say I belong to the intelligent species.

The checkerboard road sign warns of danger. This one is also an illusion. Stare at the sign and tell me if the right or left side corner is closer. Be careful, in might switch to the opposite side. I'm linking to Lesley's Signs, Signs.
