Today’s walkabout took me across Danforth Avenue, up and over Main Street, along Kingston Road, down Lee Avenue, across Queen Street East and back up Greenwood Avenue to home. My total distance covered today was 10.6km at a decent temperature of 24°C.

I always have my Nikon 1 V1 camera with me and today I was using the 10-30mm zoom lens. Although I have walked this same route many times in the past, I always seem to find great photo opportunities–they are always there, you just have to look for them and be ready to shoot.

This little semi on Lee Avenue is totally leaning to one side. The porch is crooked as are the porch supports and the porch roof.

For the second time this week I have seen a lineup of people wanting to get into their local library. This one is at Lee Avenue and Queen Street East adjacent to Kew Beach Park/Gardens. Either they have some great hot new titles, or people are wanting to enjoy the air-conditioning in the library

A friend of mine has visited Chino Locos and says their tacos and burritos are excellent. Located on the west side of Greenwood Avenue just north of Queen Street East

This homeowner on Greenwood Avenue values tomatoes more than grass. Good for them!
