Thunder Bay – Thursday

Weather experts were calling for snow. They were right. The camera’s white balance gave everything a kind of blueish tinge. I usually left it like that as that is what it looked like out there…to me anyway. Inside the snow, it was blue. These will still be here come spring. Hotel parking lot is plowed. […]

Thunder Bay – Wednesday

Looking for colour anyplace I can.  Tomorrow everything will be covered with snow. Another possible Christmas card I wonder which store used to own this cart?

Thunder Bay – Lowe’s Closing Thunder Bay Store In January

Chamber president laments Lowe’s job losses but says other stores may benefit The announcement that Lowe’s will close its Thunder Bay outlet in the new year is sad news for the 126 affected workers, but may give a boost to locally-owned hardware and home improvement stores.

Canada – Who Is In Trudeau’s Cabinet? It Doesn’t Matter, Political Power Lies Elsewhere

Who’s in Trudeau’s cabinet? It doesn’t matter, political power lies elsewhere All eyes will be on the Liberal leader’s cabinet shuffle at Rideau Hall on Wednesday afternoon. But, to many observers, the confederacy arraigned around the cabinet table is as inconsequential as the deliberations in the House of Commons. Both cabinet and Parliament have been […]

Yup…I’m in Thunder Bay. Vodka is favourite of the street drinkers because it looks like water and is virtually odourless.  Put it a water bottle and nobody will be the wiser. Maynards is the candy of choice amongst the city’s litterbugs.  Package is colourful. Looking for colour everywhere. Trash in context On a grey overcast […]

Thunder Bay – Monday

Yup…I’m in Thunder Bay. Looking for colour on a grey overcast day. A lost hat, probably full of cooties. Pigeons chowing down on spillage from rail cars. Then just like that, they all flew off. Not sure what it is. Tundra Swan.  If it did not have the yellow dot by the eyes, it would […]

Thunder Bay - Friday

Thunder Bay – Friday

Tough for the sidewalk plows. Another example of infrastructure that seems to be unnecessary.  These two pylons were damaged/vandalized months ago.  I would think that if they were required for safety, they would have been reinstalled as soon as possible.  The fact that, after a considerable length of time,  the repairs/replacements have not been made […]
