Today we drove up to friends outside of Orillia, Ontario to take part in their annual summer picnic and movie night for the kids. The weather held off and the humidity wasn’t bad either. I wandered around their huge backyard and took a few shots of some of the wildflowers.
This image is of the world’s tallest inclined tower at 175 meters. This tower is part of Montreal’s Olympic Stadium, which hosted the 1976 Summer Games. The stadium was one of the first of its kind with a retractable roof which was to be opened and closed by the tower. However neither the tower nor the stadium were completed in time for the opening of the 1976 games. The retractable roof was added at a later date. Huge costs and structural problems have contributed to the stadium being a white elephant. There are no major tenants in the building and it is now only used for concerts and such.
My little girl has been one sick kitty for the last week. She inadvertently ate some grass that had been weeded and fed the day before and she was vomitting multiple times a day. Fortunately the worse has passed and she seems to be back to her old self again. She is such a little cretin at times and has to be watched.
This morning before heading to the airport I went for a walk on a beautiful morning in downtown Mexico City. The wide boulevard that all of the hotels and skyscrapers are on is full of wonderful photographic opportunities. The mixture of the old architecture, the architecture that is made to look old and the new, uber modern architecture is fascinating.
