Behold The Mighty Moose

Andy | Thursday, May 28, 2015 | Best Blogger Tips

In 2000, Toronto City Hall and then mayor Mel Lastman scattered 326 fibreglass moose around the city. "The Moose in the City" campaign had companies and patrons paying $6,500.00 for them with charities benefiting from the sales. All 326 originally were fitted with antlers. Within just a few weeks most of the antlers were stolen by souvenir hunters. The City was hoping the international exposure they received would add a little luster to the city's Olympic bid. Toronto lost out on their bid to Beijing, China. When the campaign ended "The Great Moose Auction" was designed to benefit local Toronto charities and offset some of the multi-million dollar cost of the Moose in the City project. Online bidders from across North America and as far away as Shanghai, China, placed winning bids. In 2013 the call went out to locate survivors of "Moose in the City". I located this one in Little Britain. It goes by the name of Cujo. Named for Curtis Joseph, of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team.

It's All About Patterns

Andy | Sunday, May 24, 2015 | Best Blogger Tips

Sometimes I walk around to the rear outside side of a building. One might find graffiti, people working or you just might see something you are not supposed to. This scene is behind a Home Depot store. There was nothing exciting here. The only thing I found of interest was the pattern laid out by these pallets.

On a bright sunny day I came across this collision aftermath between a motorcycle and a school bus.
Police say blinding glare like this is a lot more common and deadly than most people realize.


On the stretcher the motorcyclist is being moved to the waiting ambulance.
I have no word about the extent of his injuries or his recovery.

Red Sky At Night Sailor's Delight

Andy | Friday, May 15, 2015 | Best Blogger Tips

When we see a red sky at night, this means that the setting sun is sending its light through a high concentration of dust particles. This usually indicates high pressure and stable air coming in from the west. Basically good weather will follow.

Birch Tree Catkins & Sunrise

Andy | Thursday, May 14, 2015 | | Best Blogger Tips

Catkins are an inflorescence, or cluster, of single sexed flowers on a spike. They tend to be produced on woody shrubs and trees such as oak, alder, birch, poplar, beech, hornbeam, sweet chestnut, hazel and willow. Silver birch is monoecious, meaning both male and female flowers (catkins) are found on the same tree, from April to May. Male catkins are long and yellow-brown in colour, and hang in groups of two to four at the tips of shoots, like lambs' tails. Female catkins are smaller, short, bright green and erect. After successful pollination (by wind), female catkins thicken and change colour to a dark crimson. Masses of tiny seeds are borne in autumn, which are dispersed by wind.

Purdy's Old Mill Ruins

Andy | Sunday, May 10, 2015 | Best Blogger Tips

In 1827, the Purdy's, an American family, built a dam on the Scugog River at the site of present day Lindsay. The following year they built a sawmill and in 1830, a grist mill was constructed. A small village grew up around the mills and it was known as Purdy's Mills. The mill destroyed by fire and was rebuilt in 1869. The existing structure once contained a stone flour mill and a lumber mill. Destroyed by fire in 1978, the Town of Lindsay incorporated the remaining structure into a riverside park.

A Swirl Of Colours

Andy | Sunday, May 03, 2015 | Best Blogger Tips

It is abandon now but at one time the building was livable. It was the colours that caught my attention and made me want to photograph it.


After seeing the outhouse I began to think the previous resident loved colours or either had a problem viewing them.


When I opened the outhouse door the mystery about the resident's perception of colour deepened even more.

Old Favourites Book Store

Andy | Friday, May 01, 2015 | Best Blogger Tips

Except for residential housing, this business is truly located in the middle of nowhere. In 1954 the first Old Favourites Bookshop  location became 36 Yonge St, Toronto.  After years of operating in various locations it was decided to move out of the downtown area to save on overhead and maintain its low prices. In 1994 they move to a historic general store in the small hamlet of Green River just 32 minutes from downtown Toronto. The shop itself occupies a niche in merchandising history. One of Canada's foremost chain store magnates got his start here. He was C.L. Burton who went from his father's general store at Green River to become president of Simpson's from the 1920's to the 1950's. If you get the chance to visit the old store you'll be walking through the same front doors they did in the late 1800's.
