Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

  • Extremely guardrailed expanse of pavement.

    Guardrails are ideal for demarcating the boundaries of parking lots. People ought to use guardrails to demarcate the boundaries of parking lots in more places than they do already. ----------------------- In downtown Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, on July 1…

  • This one's called "At the mall — in this case, an attractive shopping mall."

    I figure the Paul Mall has an interesting history? Maybe it was the world's first "business incubator." I don't know. ----------------------- In downtown Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, on July 16th, 2016, off the south side of Albert Street East, between Br…

  • A visit to the Beauty Complete Esthetique in downtown Sault Ste. Marie.

    So bright! The esthetique was closed so I wasn't able to get a picture of a Canadian entering the esthetique. Damn nice sidewalk. ----------------------- In downtown Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, on July 16th, 2016, on the west side of March Street, north…

  • Missing its section of antierosion strawblanketing.

    Look at that and imagine it would look like if the strawblanketing were gone from the entire embankment. Disturbing! ----------------------- In Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, on July 16th, 2016, off the north side of Second Line East (Ontario Highway 550),…

  • Good view of a hexagonal concrete drop inlet structure at a dam.

    It spoke aloud to me as I approached it: "I am a drop inlet structure. During severe flood events, excess water can overtop me — instead of overtopping the nearby dam! I will safely move the excess water to a channel underneath the dam." Its voice resembl…


  • If it's summer you can find me out on the water.

    The building at the right is a casino. You should go in and gamble away your checking account while I stay out here and look at the duck. ----------------------- In downtown Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, on July 16th, 2016, Fort Creek as viewed from a pede…

  • Its humps.

    To look at the humps I'd have guessed the bridge is from the late 1950s, but in fact it's from the early 1960s. The humps are in the U.S. but I am in Canada. ----------------------- The St. Marys River: • as viewed from the Attikamek Trail... • at the…

  • Water of southern Northern Ontario.

    This was pretty except for the hateful goose. The water takes on the shadow of the viewing platform from which I viewed it. I stood here for an hour trying to get Google Glass to tell me what the hell species of plant that is in the water with the float…

  • 1913 good-'n'-viny former Orange Order lodge in downtown Sault Ste. Marie.

    The memories of the fraternal protestantism and weird activities of the Orangemen is honoured by the weedy abundance of daylilies near the building. From the 1970s onward the building operated as a thrift store named "The Flea Market." Less than three mo…
