Beautiful Maple

I took this pic last Thursday when we were having a last blast of summer weather. Not too many trees had changed colour other than the Maples and they were putting on a great show throughout the city!

Yellow Birds At The Seashore

I wandered down a laneway that I hadn't checked out for a while and spotted a garage door painted by Uber5000 starring his wonderful yellow birds. He often seems to be placing the wee guys at the seashore lately so here we have an octopus appearing in the middle. I like the pirate bird in the background!

Rear View

This is a pic taken from the walking trail along the Humber River ravine showing the rear of the Old Mill. The Old Mill opened in 1914 on the site of an old grist mill and has had many additions over the years as you can see. It is now a hotel, spa and event venue specializing in weddings with its own on-site chapel and wedding garden for pictures. It is also know for the afternoon tea that has been served since its opening in 1914. These back rooms would have a lovely view of the ravine and river!

Winter Garb

The Goldfinches have lost their bright yellow feathers and are now wearing a rather olive green coat for the winter season. The change is quite amazing! I took this pic through a window so it isn't the sharpest.

Floating

If you closely at the building in the upper half of this pic you will see that it is floating above yet another pit for a condo building along Yonge St. The building is supported by I-beams and two pillars that go to the bottom of the hole. I'm not sure if the owner refused to sell or if the building has heritage protection but obviously at least this front section is going nowhere!

Early Autumn At Casa Loma

This is a late afternoon pic of Casa Loma taken last week just as some of the leaves around it were starting to change colour. There are some beautiful colours developing around town which I will try to capture.

Ice Cream Dreams

Dutch Dreams is famous in the west end of the city for their fabulous homemade frozen treats especially the ice cream. They have been in business for over 25 years near St Clair Ave and Bathurst St and during the summer the lineups can go right around the block. I took this pic of their cow on a coolish day and there was still a lineup out the door.
