Lens-Artist Challenge – On Display

thanks to Amy for hosting this week’s Lens-Artist Challenge

On the weekend we discovered a new micro-brewery close to home. It’s called Stonehooker which refers to a boat that went out into the lake and dug up shale for the roads in the neighbourhood. It’s very clear when you walk in that the owner had a nautical theme in mind.

Lens Artists Photo Challenge – Creepy

…thanks to Leya for hosting this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge

Many of these photos were taken at art galleries in London, England and here in Toronto.   Others are from the Toronto zoo and from the Highgate Cemetery in London. The one of my son-in-law is a selfie he took because he knew he was being followed by that fox. Being followed by a fox is the creepy part for me not my son-in-law.IMG-0331
