Getting Ready

 When I took the shot of the leopard mural that I showed you yesterday I was on my way along Bloor St to see the floats that were lined up for the Santa Claus parade. The parade started at 12:30 but I was there by 9 am so that I could get up close. Along the way there were chairs like these ones that loyal family members carry down to the street to reserve good spots for the kids. Most of the people seemed to be grandparents who were then sitting out wrapped in blankets while they watched over their territory. I liked the assortment of chairs that this guy had put out. Some people even put down rugs to try to keep feet warm.

Ready To Pounce

This wonderful leopard was spotted in Koreatown high above Bloor St W. He looks ready to pounce on the pedestrians below. I would love to get up onto that neighbouring roof to get a closer look at it.

Burning Bush

This Burning Bush was the last tree or bush in the neighbourhood to change colour and almost the last to drop its leaves which it did over last weekend. It was beautiful.

Ducks On a Log

This log in the pond in Wychwood Park is usually the resting and sunning spot for the resident turtles but with the turtles hiding away for the winter the ducks have taken over. I loved all the soft ripples on the surface of the water.

December Theme: Local History

The December theme for the City Daily  Photo Blog community is "Local History" and for this I wanted to show you the type of plaque that the city puts up at heritage sites. This one is outside of the Toronto Skating Club site which is a nondescript brick building on Dupont St. From the outside it is nothing special but apparently the inside has beautiful 1920s lounges and other spaces which has resulted in the film industry using it for movies from time to time. I think it is a tennis club these days.

They Are Back

The deer are coming out of the woods and back into the city for winter. This group was spotted at a local nursery. I like the one on the right with its head turned the best. The rebel.

Burgers For Sale

 When I saw this place on St Clair Ave I thought it was a vaccination site but on reading the sign in the window you can see that it is "Just Another Burger Spot". Tricky name.
