Close Shot Friday… Possibly 103


Not to be confused with Niagara-on-the-Lake. Don’t get me wrong. Both are lovely.

But, but, but…

One is an incredible edible — most of the time. Sometimes an hallucinogen. And sometimes deadly.

The other is a locale. An historic locale.

They’re both magic.

I found these on a stroll down the shore of Lake Ontario in my neck of Canadaland.

They were unexpected.

Here be Friday.

Take a step away from the news. Smell the mushrooms.

You know what to do. Meet you in the bar in 3…2…1…


Fridaaaaay!… Aah

I needed to pause for beauty today.

This fits the bill.

Taken at the 2016 Canadian Tulip Festival in Ottawa last May, I titled it Call the Fire Brigade!

Since Canada is celebrating its 150th this year, I’m expecting to be gobsmacked at the festival.

If you’ve never been, go.

Walk your kicks off.

Get some great clicks.

Watch Tweeters and Instagrammers stretched out on their bellies to get the perfect angle.

Nosh on the sidewalk, the grass.


It runs from May 12-22. Here’s a link. Canadian Tulip Festival
