Humber West Trail


 Its that time of year again, when the air is a little fresher, crisper and humidity is a bad dream of the past.  Where a world of green is being slowly but surely transformed into a myriad of yellows, browns and reds.  Okay, okay I'm being a little dramatic, but autumn is soon upon us and you can see it in its abundance in our parks and trails.  There's no need to travel up north (although I wouldn't turn down the opportunity) there is still beauty here in southwestern Ontario.  In Humber West Trail park trail,  you'll see the parks and trails are being put to good use. 


A few signs going up warning parksters not to touch the "poisonous parsnip" plants.  Most of the plants are dead already.   There is so much confusion with this plant.  Cow parsnip has a few species. The tall flowering plant is either poisonous or not.  The water parsnip -- not.  The water hemlock is highly poisonous.  I just decided that I am not going near parsnip, period.  I suggest you do the same.  I couldn't stop taking pictures today because everything looked so pretty, so I am just overloading this post with too many photos!  The trail #15 North will ultimately take you as far north as Steeles avenue along the Humber Trail.

Art Attack!!

Its kind of fun to create some 'aerial art' for the overhead flyers. 
 In the 90's there was a show on tv that aired everyday called "Art Attack!"
Episode of Art Attack!  From approx 5:49 - 7:35 in the clip, you can see his aerial artwork from start to finish! It's really cool and I remember watching it with my kids when they were small and thinking what happens to this work afterwards? Some of his shows he literally goes around a large gathering of food on picnics tables and uses the food as props! The end result is stunning from an aerial perspective and www.youtube.com has lots of footage of the show.  The host of the show, Eric Bucannhan was rumoured to have died (from an art attack?).  I did some research and infact he's alive and well, but not exactly sure what he's up to.  I decided to do a bit of my own aerial artwork with some landfill around the Tommy Thompson Park, and all I could pretty much carry were multi-cultured bricks! I did manage to spell out have a nice day..Unfortunately no one could quite get high enough over the artwork to really revel in its beauty !  :^P
