A beautiful time for walking is when the sun is low and the waters are calm. The day is nearing its end, and for a little while, all seems right with the world.
One of my favourite things about summer is the floral bounty found everywhere. Here are some samples for you to enjoy.
The city plants pots and beds overflowing with colour and scent.
Of course many homeowners make their neighbourhoods more beautiful with their plantings.
Even some plants, considered weeds, can be quite pretty.
Too soon, the flowers will disappear and be replaced by the beauty of autumn.
More and more murals are popping up in the city. Here are a few samples.
I’m not sure what the guy above is concocting, but it looks pretty ominous.
Here’s a wonderful tribute to the man who started a restaurant that’s been family owned for over fifty years. The building has been a part of the city since the 1920s.
This mural depicts a corner in the downtown district of the city. It’s another example of art hidden in an alleyway.
This artist has integrated the building’s fire escape into the finished product.
And here, another example of graffiti art usually seen on train cars. I thought the talent of the artist was evident in the figure of the woman.
Finally, this mural was found outside a restaurant’s back door. I hope the cook enjoys his work as much as the fellow depicted here.
