John FitzGerald's photos

My first post of a photo taken in 2022. As soon as I uploaded it I realized it looks like someone with their tongue hanging out of the left side of their mouth but I'm willing to overlook that. I'm feeling a bit peaked at the moment so will start commenting on other people's photos tomorrow,

Happy Fence Friday

Hyman Street, London, Ontario

17 Oct 2010 18 28 156
London, Ontario has many attractive old buidlings of white brick with carved gable trim and bargeboards. The carved tree trunk is a memorial to C, S. Hyman, for whom the strees was named; the carver was Neil Cox. For more information about Hyman, you can click the PiP at top left, which will take you to a description of his many accomplishments. London, by the way, has an official tour of carved tree trunks, but I think you're meant to just drive around to the trees yourself. Save some time and just drive along Hamilton Road in southeast London, where almost all the tree trunks are. But, of course, we can't admit that it's a southeast London project, can we? When I tell people the neighbourhood in southeast London I grew up in they jump back as if I'm going to rob them. But its reputation is a highly exaggerated version of the truth. Anyway, if you drive along Hamilton Road you can also visit the Buddhist centre in the other PiP. Here's the city's information about the tour:

Husky the Muskie

Submitted for the Vintage Photos Theme Park theme, Something Fishy . From the back of the postcard: Kenora is the northern gateway to Lake of the Woods, with its 14,632 islands and 65,000 miles of shoreline."Huskie" [sic] is a replica of the muskellunge (or muskie), one of the many fighting fish found in these waters, It is located in Kenora's McLeod Park, is 40 feet tall, and at 2 1/2 tons weighs 64 times more than the world's record muskie (70 lbs.). Actually, 2 1/2 short tons is 71 times 70 lbs. A rare example of the fishing community underestimating.

It’s Election Day in Canada! Will the PPC take votes from the CPC? Did Shachi Kurl’s ( not Scaachi Koul’s) question at the English-language leaders’ debate hand QC to the BQ? Will the CPC slogan alienate UCP voters in AB? Has the WE scandal hurt the LPC? And with Jagmeet Singh being so popular why isn’t the NDP? I dunno. What am I, some kind of psychic? My crystal ball's at the cleaners', anyway(s). I'm hoping for another minority government, though. Not only do they seem to be more productive but they are also way more entertaining.

A Valu-mart other than the one I usually shop at. I love their look.
