Call Me Vintage

Remember these? I don't remember the last time I actually used one. I figured I had better take a photo of one before they completely become extinct. Of course the colour of this phone, mixed with the graffiti, and the angle of the receiver caught me eye.

A Glass of Red

I'm usually a white wine drinker, but occasionally I don't mind a nice deep velvety red wine. Especially in the cold months, and with a nice beef stew, or coq au vin. (Which happens to be my new favorite dish)

This 'aged' or perhaps 'vintage' mural is from the side of the LCBO in Cabbagetown. Not sure if it is still there or not. I produced and framed a copy of this, and I have to say it adds a nice flavour to my wall. ;)

Why me?

I usually live out my day to day life with the motto everything happens for a reason. That said, I am not immune to the throwing my hands up in the air and yelling "Why me?". January seems to be the month for me that proves the most questioning, and this one is no exception.

I don't know much about this guy throwing his hands up in desperation, but I do know he is part of a small group of figures in a small park I believe called Ireland Park, and they are there in remembrance of the Great Irish Famine in the 1840's. (Which is part of the reason why I am here...)I will post the others in time.

Coffee and a Muffin

I've been sitting at the computer for two days trying to work on my New Years goal. Sorting pictures, trying to group them together, work on a resume, biography, all things I've been meaning to do, but have fallen behind on. Seemed like a good weekend to work on it since it is so cold out. I ran across this picture, and immediately decided it was time for a coffee and snack. A simple picture, and yet it created a response. Funny how that works.

It was taken this past fall from a popular little shop in Cabbagetown...
