Bench of tribute


If you're brave enough to sit here in this chilly weather, you can honor some of the fallen heroes of Niagara Falls. I like the simplicity of this war memorial. For a look at other skies from around the world, take a look at Skywatch.


In celebration of two years in Toronto, I knitted a seed stitch hat. If you'd like to win it, just leave a comment before February 24th. I'll draw someone's name from the comments. If you're not interested in being part of the draw, just mention that and I'll keep your name out.

What a lovely spot. I like the blue sky contrasted with the snow.

Très chouette. Très photogénique comme endroit, la neige donne un côté solennel...

Pretty picture and such a great hat! Please do include me in the draw.

It is a nice monument but I'd guess the weather might lead people to honor the heroes at a later date!

Love that seed cap!

I've never seen that monument! I suspect you've spent more time at Niagara Falls than I have. :))

Wonderful post and photo!

Great capture with all 3 flags blowing in the wind!

Nice looking spot.

A beautiful memorial and a beautiful image, Halcyon. It is almost monochromatic except for the bright colors of the flags jumping out of the image. Cool!

And I'll bet your transformers miss YOU, too.

Beautiful. The flags add a real splash of warmth and colour to the scene too.

The perspective you've captured the memorial is cool (I mean, not in the chilly sense of cool... :)
And the hat looks like some yummy exotic fruit! :)
God bless you!

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
