Made my way down to Almonte over the weekend for another successful Handmade Harvest! Some amazing vendors showed-up including some of my favourite micro-breweries. Unlike the last time I was there, I decided to actually explore the town this time round and quickly realized how awesome it was. The photographs below don’t do it justice, but trust me, it’s worth a day trip. Also in case you didn’t know, I finally opened an online store for my prints.

Read the story behind it and their flickr photos to really appreciate the work put into restoring this thing, it is actually pretty interesting. They pulled off the restauration work perfectly. On that note, hope you all enjoy a very timely and hopefully pretty holiday […]

Another random piece of Ottawa architecture for you today. A beautiful statue and a beautiful clock as seen in the Byward market. You would think they could be atop almost any of the old building in the Byward Market. Yet, sadly they are not. Say hello to the Lone Star Texas Grill!     [google_map address=’144′ coordinates=’45.427931,-75.690444′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]
