Nostalgia Christmas

Andy | Monday, April 25, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
I took this photo just before last Christmas. It is a storefront window in a small town. I have been toying with posting it but it just didn't have the right appeal to it. So I took another look at it and tinkered with the lighting until it became more attractive and interesting. For me the scene brought back a time of childhood innocence and happiness that I enjoyed many decades ago. Never underestimate the importance of tiny moments in your life. Never a day goes by without me thinking of treasured moments from the past.

Because the lighting looked better I went for the side view. I am linking to Tom's The Barn Collective.

Lame Duck

Andy | Friday, April 22, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
I think this is a female Oldsquaw Duck. Please correct me if I am wrong. I took this photo and then I returned forty minutes later to see her still sitting on the rock facing in the same direction. Many people pass by here and normally these ducks move off to keep their distance from humans. She appeared to be under some kind of stress. Maybe ill or exhausted.

Diftwood

Anything that floats gets washed up along the shoreline.

A lack of bark demonstrates it has been in the water for considerable time. 

Size does not matter. The lake can handle big or small.

St George's Church

Andy | Sunday, April 17, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
This church, built in Gothic style in 1876-7, replaced the original wooden church built in 1839. The stone church architects were Gavillais and Thompson of Barrie, Ontario. Captain Tom Sibbald supervised the building of the church and local craftsmen did the actual building. The gargoyles are a symbols of evil being expelled by the Gospel. The gargoyles (in this case rams' heads) are used as water spouts.

Yellow

Let her cry, for she's a lady
Let her dream, for she's a child
Let the rain fall down upon her
She's a free and gentle flower, growing wild

X Marks The Spot

Andy | Tuesday, April 12, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
Located at Intrepid Park this is all that remains of "top secret" Camp X. Here, during the Second World War, Canadian and American civilians were trained as intelligence specialists by the British Special Operations Executive. Serving on dangerous missions abroad, these secret agents were not legally protected if caught nor were they openly recognized for their courage and sacrifice. The first school of its kind in North America, Camp X was also an advanced top-secret communications relay station until it closed in 1969. The camp's activities helped build intelligence ties between Canada, Great Britain, and the United States.

Traveling uptown in the nearby City of Oshawa you will find this mural with it's reference to Camp X. It depicts some of the activities at the Camp. Artist Tony Johnson.

Thanks to urban sprawl it is doomed and cannot be saved.

Even the trees have a unfortunate and inescapable outcome.

Fishing The Ganaraska River

Andy | Tuesday, April 05, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
The people you see on the far side are fishing for rainbow trout. Right now until the 4th Saturday in April the fishing season is only open south of the railway tracks. After that the entire river is open season. This railway bridge clearly defines the location of that boundary. And yes... everyone is on the south side.

Lake Ontario Relics

Andy | Sunday, April 03, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
I don't know how or why these items are here. They look like concrete pipes that are used for storm and sanitary gravity sewer systems. In the early 1960's I used come here with my friends to smelt fish. At that time there were houses along this portion of the lake. The land is presently owned by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority and the homes were demolished to make way for the Waterfront Trail.

Walking along the shoreline of Lake Ontario I came across this long forgotten object.
PS: This is one of those shots I wonder why I bothered to post.
