The middle photo is of the remains of Banksy's rat in Chinatown. I still like that he came here.

for earthlad, what happens to trucks in Toronto

(viewed 1543 times)
I was surprised to learn from Earthlad that in Bristol, epicentre of public art, that trucks were not targeted for 'improvement'. The trucks here, and many around the city look like this. Some owners have given up fighting it and ask for a team to just 'do' the truck. Once there is a known piece, chances are, it won't even be tagged.

nuit blanche toronto 2010

(viewed 2418 times)
My favourite night in Toronto. A million people, the roads closed and full of people talking to each other, having adventures, seeing some great art. This year fire was very popular because it was chilly. In the centre of Toronto, there was a very large fire, with everyone asking where were the marshmallows.

It's late and I am off in the morning, back up north before the frost hits next week. It's a race and until it's over, I am on fungus planet north. My apologies for not being around.

I feel guilty about moblog. Somewhere along the line, I decided that all my plant photos were just boring on moblog and I should put them somewhere else. so I have been putting them on flickr. I have been working on plant photos for a while. In the beginning it was work and now it is for me. I really feel sad when the comment I made at night on moblog is still there when I check up in the morning. Facebook has killed moblog, and most blogs. I joined Facebook for a while, and it was ok, but nothing like the contact, the wit, the fun I had here. Nothing is as slow as moblog, but it's my true home on the interwebs. I miss so many people and value those still here, but I feel like it is a ghost of itself, something that was, and is no longer. I owe something. I learned so much here, made such good friends, laughed so hard when I didn't expect it......

jellyfish

(viewed 593 times)
when I was a kid, there were periwinkles, starfish, sand dollars, horseshoe crabs and jellyfish at the beach. sometimes there were thousands of any of these things washed up on the shore. We used to stab jellyfish with a stick and throw them back. Of all the things I remember, it seems like jellyfish are the one thing that has gone forth and multiplied.

horseshoe crab

(viewed 1081 times)
Unchanged for 450 million years, and in spite of its strange appearance, completely harmless. I have great affection for them because as a child they covered the beach and were an endless source of magic and curiousity. Like other crabs, they moult, leaving behind a complete shell of themselves. I held this moulted shell up to the light.
