Lacrosse Rocks

Andy | Friday, February 24, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

The Toronto Rock goalie's helmet is under construction at VooDoo Airbrushing. The Rock is Toronto's lacrosse team of the National Lacrosse League. They say it's the fastest game on two feet. The average lacrosse league salary is only about $22,000. Even those who play the game year-round in professional leagues still have day jobs. The low salaries keep the cost of the league down. And that keeps the cost of the tickets down... one of the other reasons why the games are so popular with fans. With single ticket prices ranging from $15 to $80, lacrosse is one of our last few affordable sporting activities.

Lake Effect Ice

Andy | Wednesday, February 22, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

It's not caused by an ice storm but rather the splashing of the waves hitting the shore.

Monday Mural - Support Our Troops

Andy | Monday, February 20, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

I like driving down countryside dead end dirt roads. Sometimes I come across a gem like this one painted on a topless silo. It is located on private property not close to the roadway. The best I can make out the artist name is J Tevot. I'm linking to Monday Mural.

Monday Murals - Farmers Market

Andy | Monday, February 13, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

Another of my favorite murals from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Established in 1750, the Historic Halifax Market is located in the Keith's Brewery. The Market is the oldest continuously running market in North America. The mural is a tribute to the old market that is now getting competition from the new Seaport Market.

Another Baby Snow Fall

Andy | Saturday, February 11, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

I'm up early at 4:35 A.M. taking this photo of an overnight snow fall. The temperature has dropped to -11°C. Too cold to go outside so I am shooting through my patio door.

Dumb & Dumber

Andy | Wednesday, February 08, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

This winter Frenchman's Bay did freeze over but due the mild weather it was never stable. Of course this did not discourage people from wandering onto the ice. The last few days temperatures have gone up and most of the water has opened up. Unfortunately I only had my 55 mm lens with me when I took this photo of the die hard fishermen on the brink of disaster. In order to get the best view click on the image.

Andy | Friday, February 03, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

For the life of me I can't remember why I took a photograph of this car. Do see anything that might have caught my eye?
