Chisolm Building

Old building in Alderdale.

White Building

Looks like new windows have been installed so I guess somebody cares.

Catedral Metropolitana

In the middle of Guayaquil across the street from the Iguana Park (Parque Seminario) is the Catedral Metropolitana. It is also known as the Cathedral of St Peter. The original cathedral was made of wood and built in another location around the time of the city’s founding. It burned in 1692. This building was constructed between 1924 and 1937 in neo-Gothic style. It is located in the centre of old town Guayaquil. The interior is very impressive.

A quiet place to meditate.

Huron County Farmhouse

We visited friends this past weekend in Huron County. The land is flat and the farms are prosperous. This house was built in the late 1800’s and is really spectacular and impeccably cared for. It has been in the family since 1900 or so.

Wheatley House Colour Line Art

The 10 foot ceilings and front and back staircases are a mark of the architecture of the time.

This part of the province is a very pungent challenge to the nose. Pigs are big business and the smell of money is constantly in the air.

Simple Shapes

Architecture at its simplest:

Rectangles and Triangles

Rectangles and triangles.

There is elegance to simple accommodation in our modern, ornate, over-decorated world.

Annette’s Kitchen

I passed through Field on Saturday afternoon to visit a little craft festival nearby.  The hamlet has seen better times but still hangs on.  One casualty is this restaurant building which I suppose is just waiting for demolition, judging from the missing hydro meter and the decaying foundation.

Annette's Kitchen

Good food and good times happened here but life goes on, leaving warm memories in its wake.

Still, it’s sad when these changes happen.

Cycle of Life, I guess.

Doll House

This little building is made of squared logs and was turned into a child’s playhouse.  It’s stout enough that as the grandkids got older they could spend the night if they chose.

Jack's Doll House

Jack restored it too.

It sits next to Jack’s Barn .
