Switch Open Street Sunday signs are up

Volunteers are now putting up signs in advance of today’s Switch event. This stretch of Agricola Street is among the roads that will close to car traffic fromĀ  9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Sunset on Sarah Street

The sky looking north from Sarah Street.

Took this picture on Wednesday evening. I love the strange effect left by the crisscrossing power lines.

Wading in for the picture

A man snaps a picture of the art on the side of the Pavilion all-ages club this week.

A window with lots of heart

A creative window display at Dee Dee’s Ice Cream shop on Cornwallis Street ushers in Valentine’s Day. Love the personalized touches. A sample of the messages markered on the cut-outs:

  • I love bikes
  • I love data cave 542
  • My cat, Sue
  • Matt Grimson
  • I love that our planet has a moon
  • Bacon strips, bacon strips, bacon strips, bacon strips, bacon strips
  • I love our glorious province and smiling @ strangers

Going crazy with scissors and red paper.

A loving nod to the good that's come from the nearby skating oval.

Dressed in red

The following photos are the product of a morning spent scouring north-end streets for the colour red.

Wind and rain play havoc with a poster tacked to a power pole at the corner of Kaye and Gottingen.

A bold red colour for a hydrostone home down the hill from Needham Park.

Holiday decorations persist deep into January at this Northwood Terrace home.

Plenty of red on offer in the window displays at Hydrostone Market.

St. Mark's Church on Gottingen.

Itching for speedskates

The oval is starting to look like, well, a speedskating track. Workers at the Commons were tidying up the concrete pad Friday.
