C is for canoes and condos



This large, oversized, Douglas Coupland designed red canoe sits atop a knoll surrounded by many new condo buildings with an outlook straight out onto Lake Ontario at (what used to be) Garrison Creek.

When, I don't know about the condo - all those windows! - but I sure like that canoe. Over I go and into the creek. Fun!

That's a very cool canoe! I love that it is there for the condo-dwellers to look at.

"at (what used to be) Garrison Creek"? Did they fill in the creek so they could build condos? I hope not, I hate that sort of thing.
Excellent photo, however, the juxtaposition of an ancient mode of transportation with modern design, and a background of beautiful blue sky.

What a Clever Capture of a Canoe and Condo for C day!

Joy said...

What a great idea. Now I am wondering if you can sit inside.

VioletSky said...

Yes, you can sit inside!

Kay: the stream (Garrison Creek) was slowly filled in and diverted to sewer system a long time ago.

This is quite curious - it looks like it will tip over. Interesting juxtaposition with the skyscraper.

Strange to see a canoe perched up alone like that! But it makes a great photo talking point!
