The swans are migrating south at this time of year.
Every morning there's at least 30 to 40 swans on Frenchman's Bay.

Monday Murals - Bradley Street Pedestrian Underpass

Andy | Monday, November 19, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

A dreary pedestrian underpass is now a work of art thanks to London's Community Art Project. Twenty students from Rick Hansen and White Oaks public schools in grades 7 and 8 collaborated with local mural artist, Andrew Gillet. This side is painted a cool blue with orcas.

Monday Murals - Under Construct

Andy | Monday, November 05, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

Artist: Tracy Root. She is painting a 16 metre wide mural commissioned by the London Arts Council and the city’s heritage committee. Unfortunately for me, I was there on Tracy's day off.


Work is taking place along the bike path, under the Thames River crossing of Oxford St., in London Ontario. Tracy designed the scene to include a valley, rolling hills, houses, farmers, and a river running through the middle. The valley is bordered by lush forest on either side and the whole scene is framed with a bright blue sky. She started the mural on September 28th and hopes to have it finished by October 27th.

Same Scene - TwoViews

Andy | Friday, November 02, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

Focal point is the part of an
image that draws the eye of a viewer to the most important part of the image.


In this photo of the same scene using selective focusing I have directed your attention to the foreground. I rate myself as a amateur photographer and this is not intended to be a lesson. It's just me having fun with my hobby.
