Monday Murals – Art Commissioned for Our Enjoyment

thanks to Sami from Colourful World

I love murals and street art. Sometimes we see things so often, almost daily, and we take it for granted. In my neighbourhood there are lots of murals that have been commissioned over the years that I had completely forgotten about when thinking of this challenge. Here are just a few of the murals that are close together in my neck of the woods.

This last one is my favourite. It almost feels like there is an actual Mountie up on a ladder painting the last bit of red on the wall. Notice his horse waiting for him on the other side of the bus shelter.

Hallowe’en During COVID

amid speculation as to whether the kids will be out trick or treating this year

The good news for children is that the chief medical officer said that children will be allowed to go out on Hallowe’en night and are encouraged to wear masks as part of their costumes. Homes in my neighbourhood of New Toronto are already gearing up for the big night with decorations in front of their houses. Here are a few of them.

Monday Window – July 6, 2020

….thanks to Ludwig for hosting Monday Window

There’s lots of new builds and renovations going on in our neighbourhood. The one thing that I like about a lot of these additions are the windows that the owners have chosen to install in these modern structures.3-C719686-E3-CE-4-FCC-8439-C4257-F35881-F-1-201-a

An Evening Walk

…today was a beautifully warm day and before dinner I needed to make up some steps to reach my goal

No wind, the setting sun and temperatures hovering around 10 degrees Celsius were ideal conditions for an evening walk through the neighbourhood. I headed west and entered Col. Sam Smith Park where I opted to walk through the naturalized area and over to the marina. Here are a few of the sites I encountered along the way.

Can you guess what that lump in the pond is?
