Friday Finds

1. Starts with C
2. Week's Favorite
3. Unique Perspective

The first two will be the same, except we’ll work our way through the alphabet. The second can be a favorite image or activity from the week. The third will be different each time.



July 2016 - Toronto ON


Letter C



Chechalk Lane was only given this name in August 2014, taking its name from one of the two chiefs of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation who signed the 1805 Toronto Purchase. Toronto's Aboriginal population is larger than any other city in Ontario.

A few photos from the Indigenous Festival at Fort York a couple of years ago featuring the Mississaugas First Nation.








Week's Favourite - the first mural we found in Rochester NY this week. Martin Luther King. I even didn't really mind that the umbrella was there.


Unique Perspective

I think I have to go with this building in Rochester NY.

  2. Love your post today, Jackie. Brings memories.
    We've been to a couple of Indigenous Festivals, one in 2014 in New Zeeland and the other an American Indian, at Macy, Nebraska, on the Omaha Indian Reservation.
    Rochester has some pretty buildings. We've only driven through Rochester.

  4. The yellow umbrella works in your photo. It balances the colors of the hands. I wonder if Mississippi River was named after this group. Great shots of them.
