Fast And Red

If you are going to drive a Ferrari is there any other colour rather than red? I'm a fan of black cars but the red wins for these guys. You can see in this pic how crowded it was along the main viewing aisle and why so many people went to the rear of the display which is where this pic was taken from.

I have some sad news for the photo blog community. Lowell from Ocala Daily Photo has passed away. He will be missed so much.

Exotic Cars On Bloor

On June 9 Bloor St W in the Yorkville neighbourhood was closed off for a show of exotic cars as part of a fundraiser to support research into prostate cancer. The various makes of exotic cars were gathered together in their own corrals and this one full of Aston Martins was an eye popper. The cars were fabulous but the centre row leading along the street was so packed with people that it was hard to get near the cars. The people in this pic are at the back of the displays and are up on the sidewalk. I'll show you a reverse view tomorrow.

A Conversion Update

I first showed you these old Victorian houses in April of 2015 (HERE) when they were nothing but a facade from the original buildings. When you go back to the link follow the link there to see them as they were originally. Well I was in the neighbourhood to see a car show and dropped by to see the finished product. I must say that I was pleased to see how they rebuilt the skins of the homes and they are now used as entrances to the curvy glass tower behind. A Good Conversion!

Guard Dog

This large dog was painted on the back wall of a building along Feel Good Lane. There is another cute dog off to the right but there were several garbage bins in front of it. The artist for this one is Dr_Roameo.

Billiard Room

This is the billiard room at Spadina House where lots of fun times were had by the family after relaxing in the parlour which I showed on Friday. Renovations were done here several years ago but those murals that you see on the upper parts of the walls were cleaned and restored rather than replaced.

Hiding

Hiding in the bushes and waiting for the big Great Gatsby event at Spadina House was this black squirrel. He is sure to pick up some delicious treats during the picnic.

In The Parlour

This is the parlour in Spadina House which is so well decorated in 1920s style. Can't you just see ladies in their fine 20s clothing lounging around in here? Actually this weekend at Spadina House they have the Great Gatsby Garden Party when guests are encouraged to arrive in 1920s finery for a day of music, dancing and picnicking in the extensive gardens surrounding the house.
