Interesting Sightings

“It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.”
- Henry David Thoreau -

Whenever I’m out and about, I often notice some interesting, unusual, fascinating and even amusing things that are fun to photograph. Like the ones below...

Is it tires over logs? Or logs through tires? Things that make me go hmmm...

A striking mural of Sir John A. McDonald; the first Prime Minister of Canada. (Seen in downtown Napanee, Ontario)

Oooh...a spy hole! Shall we take a peek?

How come they don't stop and say hello? (Seen in Belleville, Ontario)

"Super size me" flower pots in Ottawa, Ontario.

The highly anticipated (and appetizing) sequel to 'Life of Pi'. (Spotted in Ottawa, Ontario)

Two thumbs up for a bench that sits on logs.

A sundial in the garden of Casa Loma in Toronto. Isn't this the coolest thing?

Happy Thursday, blogging pals!

  1. I love all of these fun and whimsical shots, Martha! And hey -- at Life of Pie, can you get a scoop of "tiger tiger" ice cream on your dessert?

    1. I certainly hope so. Or else, what's the point of this? :)

      We didn't stop in, but maybe next time we're in Ottawa!

  2. Interesting photos today Martha. I feel like visiting Ottawa...but that should be a summer visit, it gets cold there!

  5. The bench is also made of old packing crates. I saw a whole bunch of ideas last night on using them.

  6. I'm sure many people would walk by many of these and think them not worthy of a photo. Thanks for finding the hidden away things.

    1. I always observe my surroundings. It's become second nature since I took a huge interest in photography.

    3. You're sweet, girl! We're always spontaneous with our road trips, but if I ever know in advance that we're visiting Ottawa, I'll let you know. And if you're up to it, we can meet for coffee.
