July 1st Canadian’s are celebrating Canada’s 150 years of Confederation. Fireworks are always part of the celebrations so I made my way down to Columbia Lake in Waterloo Ont. for the big show. For 20 minutes the sky was alive with the explosions, pops and sizzles. Here are a few shots I captured.
The way we use windows in our buildings today has really evolved over the years. The shuttered windows on the Seagram museum are reflected in the all glass wall of the The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) in downtown Waterloo Ontario.
The sights and sounds and colours all come together during the Fall Fairs and Busker Festivals. This was taken at the Busker Festival this year in Waterloo Ontario.
This past summer the The Waterloo Regional Police Service officially unveiled its new north division station. At the front entrance you are greeted by a bronze statue of the lion and the lamb designed by Ernest Daetwyler, which borrows the two animals from the police insignia. The lamb represents youth getting it’s first shaky legs of independence, while the lion represents the community and the establishment, watchful and protective of youth.
For me, what I first thought of when I first saw this beautiful installation was the Biblical representation of the Lion and the Lamb.
On Sunday September 15 we went to Uptown Waterloo to check out the Open Streets event. Open Streets Uptown Waterloo is a series of community afternoons inviting everyone to come walk, ride and play in our vibrant urban centre along King Street.
The Waterloo Bowling Lanes is under the wrecking ball after 64 years of business in Waterloo. You can still see the wall art from the basement lanes. It looks like Marvin got a little carried away with his laser gun!
