In the vault...

Monday, June 30, 2008


Just digging through my photo archives while waiting to take new snapshots - this is again the Brighton Pier, UK, on a mild January day. Sigh. Makes me itch to travel with Vegas... feeling stagnant at the moment.

Weirdness... just because

Saturday, June 28, 2008


I did find *one* more I wanted to post here... it's been gray and raining for so long here, and we haven't gone anywhere so there is no opportunity for pics. Pray for sun so we can start living again?

I am out of pics!

clouds 025.jpg

Apologies for the last few dull photos, I truly have nothing left to show unless I go dig in my archives... been very busy with life lately so photography has taken a back burner. I hope to get inspired again soon. I guess it will be vault material for a few days so thanks for bearing with me!

I love how the setting sun casts a warm glow to the most mundane of objects.

Ticket to romp

At least these little sunny cuties have found a spot to run free and wild among the urban decay and eradication of anything that doesn't conform to the "pretty garden" norms...

La vie en rose

Montreal skyline seen through rose-coloured glasses on a stormy day.

Who ever said wild grasses couldn't be classy and beautiful?...

She's a clever one, Mother Nature...

As seen through urban eyes

A week in clouds

clouds 044.jpg

...big, dark, angry clouds that have settled over our part of the world for the better part of 10 days now, on-and-off spilling cold rain on our heads, ever-present and threatening to drown anything we plan outside of four walls. Forecast for the next five days calls for showers, rain, thunderstorms... so yeah... nothing else to take pics of. Blah.

A neighborhood bloke strolling along his merry way... gotta love them modern hippies!

Blue-haired girl, summer view

Monday, June 16, 2008


Some of you may remember I posted a pic of this building surrounded by snow a few months ago... well she (along with the rest of us!) survived the 7-month winter and emerged all happy and glowing and glad to be alive!

In the spirit of weekend

The jeebus statue blesses you all :-)


Friday, June 13, 2008


A giant stone structure OR a place or worship for the infidels, depending on how you look at it. I think the architecture is cool...

Ani and Pedro

Thursday, June 12, 2008


So the rumour is that Ani and Pedro were swimming in the Atlantic sea in their underwear when a huge sharp glacier bore down on them and before they could move out of the way - they got sliced in half! All that remained were these frozen remnants. So children, beware: bathing in your undies brings bad luck!

Gingerbread for all

Wednesday, June 11, 2008


It's amazing what you can see in architectural detail when you just lift your head a bit from the beaten path - in this case, old gingerbread details on a balcony are quite stunning yet so very simple and unassuming.

A little neighborhood serenity

Even Jeebus had a backside, hard as a rock... *grin*

Secret passages

Sunday, June 8, 2008


Just a shortcut I like taking when walking to work sometimes, specially on hot summer days!

My message for the day

Canadian beaver, eh?

Friday, June 6, 2008


I just noticed yesterday that if you look waaaay up to the top of some old banks and other buildings, there are quite a few beavers lurking in the scenes... quite the intricate detailed history of Canada going on here, what do you say?


Thursday, June 5, 2008


I like that some of the buildings still have old painted advertisements from yesteryear on them... brings a bit of historic flair to this dry brick and mortar environment.

Funky building art

The side of a building in my neighborhood... graffiti gone extreme!

To brighten your day

Tuesday, June 3, 2008


I know my day sure needs something bright and sunny to cheer it up... will these wet gray skies ever go away? Sigh.

The domination of green

Monday, June 2, 2008


Just you wait until this giant has finished dressing itself in a thick green coat of leaves for the summer... how small are we compared to Mother Nature sometimes?

I remember sunny days...

Sunday, June 1, 2008


Just needed to post a pic of happy sunny pinkness, after two days of solid pissing rain it is something to remind myself that it will be nice and dry again, hopefully soon...
