black beauty

My find of the day yesterday!

One just never knows when such a discovery will pop up.  Parked innocently minding it’s own business.  I couldn’t resist… no matter what passers by thought.. I was the paparazzi focused on my prize.     Some days it doesn’t take much to spark the flame. =^_^= smilePencil

Happy Monday everyone!

short story line

P1000082

he could hear the birds. feel the heat beating down through the trees, yet without opening his eyes, he knew he wasn’t in a park. the smell of rusted metal, and old oil and grease permeated the air.  his body was heavy, unresponsive, and whatever was on his chest was not going anywhere fast.

P1000085

his eyes still closed, he knew, instinctively knew, that the weight on this chest was alive, and it was gazing hard, accessing, patiently waiting.  Did he want to see what held him captive, sooner or later, he would have to look.  The weight on his chest shifted, but did not move away, he could feel the warm breath on his face. He was too stiff, tired and dazed, it would be unwise to move suddenly, if he could at all.  With a slow intake of his breath, he allowed his eyes to open.

P1000101

the sun hurt his eyes but he forced himself to keep them open, there was lush vegetation all around from what he could see, he was surrounded by the remains of vehicles, he was in a graveyard of scrap metal.  what he tried to avoid and was not succeeding were the dark emerald eyes flecked with gold that stared into his.  There was no emotion not human anyway that looked into his, just a pair of hypnotic eyes that spoke volumes, but none that he could recognize.

P1000088

suddenly the sun no longer gave him warmth.  now he felt a chill, it travelled from his head down to his feet.  This was something very different and very real, This was a she, he was sure, he was being held captive by a she, and he knew… she was wondering just what to do.  She wasn’t hurting him, she wasn’t gentle, she was exploring and sizing him up, but for what.  Why was he not afraid.  what was it that kept him still, and wondering, almost a partner in this unknown dance.

P1000087

life is what we make it.  how we respond to situations in life, can change the course or direction of our lives.  live being mindful of who you are and the opportunities around you. =^_^=

This is my story, that I’m sharing with you.  My mind likes to invent when I’m driving and waiting for lights or in traffic.

The definition of staple in the dictionary is =  a main or important part of something.. this applies to many things in our lives.  As life has rolled along over the past years, with technology becoming more and more a part of our day to day lives.  One place and company that has become a staple in my life is “Staples” or known on the Quebec side as Bureau en Gros.

Staples.ca

Almost every Staples that I have gone into, whether here or in the USA have shown friendly staff, and good customer service.  Our local Staples. is  at 1233 Donald Street at  St. Laurent.  Ottawa, Ontario.  They look after my computer, iPad and any other technical dilemma I come up against  Thank you, Tom, Matt and Aaron   This location may be the smallest in the area, but it is always busy, people are always coming in, why.. cuz they may be small, but they give Excellent customer service.  They do every thing they can to help you resolve your problem and/or find what you need.

 

Eclipse

 

While I am saying thank you, I want to include a restaurant that I can visit, and know that I will enjoy the buffet.  the Eclipse has two locations, one in Ottawa on Innes Road,   Depending on when you want to go, Reservations are helpful if you want to ensure a table.  the other store is in Burlington  www.eclipseasiancuisine.com

Art is in the eye of the beholder.  the setting, the metal, tires left to bake in the sun, the lush green that is carpeting the area.  It was like a walk in my own private garden.  There were birds singing in the trees, just enough of a breeze that the vegetation danced lazily against the rusting metal.  Have you ever tried to capture all the different colours of rust.  Here the metal parts and pieces, all became works of art, just for me.

Today, I give thanks for all in life that makes me happy, and brings interest and flavour to my days.  For sure the  people in my  life are awesome, always a smile, always a lending or helping hand.  Life is good.  Happiness shared, is so satisfying …  Till next visit, thank you for dropping by.

Where did Saturday go

Hogs back water 1 (6-5-2016 1-02 PM)

In Ottawa, we have an area we call Hogs Back, no, sorry I don’t know why, it has just always been called that.  On one side of the roadway, the water rushes, tumbles and crashes over rocks, the view and the sounds can be very exhilarating.  Yet the park land around it, is tranquil, peaceful and a joy to experience.

P1000063

I found this beauty parked just sitting there while driving down the highway.  Obviously I couldn’t just drive by, I wanted a closer look.  Usually when one is drawn to something, there is a reason, for it.

P1000067The owner was not around, I did enquire, so I couldn’t get a story on this particular car, but I did discover that this car and others that I will use over the while, belong, or are in the charge of a company called  The Sports Car Factory (restoration and fabrication)  how cool is that.  Their address and coordinates will be found at the end of this blog.

P1000068

Old cars/trucks tell a story.  I love finding one, the workmanship, the detail, the lines. they aren’t merely functional, often the car will have its very own story to tell.

P1000084

What we see, is not always the full story, our eyes focus and see what is before them, we will look around us,  and then settle on the view that is most pleasing to us. When I visit Hogs Back, I tend to walk over to the water, I like to gaze down at the swirling mass of water that is travelling at its own pace,  going along with the pull of nature, to wherever it will lead.  I can’t see beyond the upper layers of cascading foam and liquid motion.  But I know it is there, under the water that I see, lies another world, it is there even though I cannot see it.

The same applies to the cars.  In whatever state I find them, I know that their  sum total is only part of what is there.  So why as a human do I often find myself accepting what appears obvious, but in reality is only 1/2 a story, or one of many possibilities.

There you are, Saturday in part, I have so much to assimilate and discover… the  lens captures one second of the day,  the rest will make its way to the top, sometime, somewhere along the way.

It was a great day

it made room for today

ring around a rosie

a pocket full of posies

another house came down today

what was once a quiet little community

is being  bombarded

with in fill

cars & trucks are lined up

all in a row

wheels off, and hoods up

like ladies of the night

waiting for someone

to come and hopefully

take what is left of the parts

after all

their hearts were

taken long ago

car art   rust

yes I visited one of my favourite haunts

today

no I wasn’t out to play

I had to detour and found myself

in a place

that even in the broiling heat

gives me pause

to simply

BE
