The Sanderson Centre

This is our local preforming arts theatre. The history of this lovely building goes back to 1919 when it opened at the Temple Theatre. There is also a gallery of photos, but it doesn't do the building justice.

Flower arrangement

This flower arrangement is at the corner of a very busy intersection. The city has been putting this display here for the past few years. By the end of August, you can not see the arms holding the half circles.

I took this today at 9:45 as the clock tower says. The building with the clock is the federal building which Canada Post is located along with Service Canada. The building beside it is called the Temple Building. The Temple Building has not looked this good since it was built. The city is in the mists of a downtown revitalization which is wonderful.

Oreo's anyone?

Today at our local grocery store, they had a Kid's Fun Day with the Fire & Police Departments, face painting, a BBQ, give aways and the Oreo Lick Race.

I didn't think that this photo was going to turn out. It was taken in the car crossing the Lorne Bridge. The river below is call the Grand River. I like how the sun turned out in this. Interesting.

Objects in mirror....

Objects in mirror are closer than they appear. In this case it isn't true, they really are that close. We got stuck in traffic on the way to my Dad's place for Father's Day.

Fallen Hero

Today was the funeral for Captain Richard (Steve) Leary. Capt. Leary was killed in Afghanistan last week and he is from Brantford. My deepest sympathies to his wife, family and friends.

After the storm

I always love the sky after a storm. The colours are always so vivid.

Side note: I know there is power lines in the photo, and I could have cropped them out, but I didn't want to do anything to this photo as it shows exactly what I saw when I looked out my window.

This was taken this evening outside of my apartment. It looks like a funnel cloud forming. It actually get very windy and then the rain just poured! I didn't take any more photos, but took video instead. It was very interesting and a little bit scary as it looked like it was right across the street. More storms are expected later this evening.

Live Chess

Today was the Grand Opening of the new Harmony Square in our downtown. This was a Live Chess match between the Mayor of Brantford and the Mayor of Brant County. The only one to be sitting is the King on the Brant County side. My hats off to the Knights as they were in full armour and it was very hot today!

Wild flowers

These are one of my favourite flowers, and they grow everywhere except in gardens. Along the side of the highways is where you can mostly see them. And they smell wonderful also:)

This is what happens when you try to take a photo at night and forget to set the camera to the night setting. I think this turned out great:)

Big Tree

Went to one of the many parks in the city. This is one of the largest trees I have seen. The pink little dot at the bottom of the tree is my 5 year old daughter.

First photo

This is the first photo of many for this blog. I am excited to share them with everyone. The building on the left is of one of the court houses and as you can see there is a school bus dropping off students to learn what not to do. Enjoy:)
