I was driving through the North End on Sunday and had my camera with me. I noticed that 'colour' was the day's theme !
Colourful infill housing. On Arlington near where I live there is one of these designs in peach.
St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church - the first Ukrainian Catholic Parish in Winnipeg. The current church is c 1966. The mural was designed in 1988 by Emil Telizyn. For more pics, including interior.
Cool building design. It looks like it should be a part of the international space station !
Finally, I came across a guy sunning his parrot - no, that's not a euphemism - and I just had to stop and check it out. His parrot was enjoying the breeze on his perch. What a wonderful creature ! He told me what type of macaw it was but, not being a bird person, I forgot. The biggest kind, anyway.
Some facts about this type of macaw: Their beak has 2,000 lbs of pressure - it can snap a broomstick ! They have the capacity of a three year-old so can be trained for things, know when they've done something wrong and have a limited vocabulary. Quite the personality this one had, too !! They live to be around 80 years old (!) so you'd better like how yours turns out because you'll be with it until death. Luckily, this guy loved his !
This was also with him. It's the smallest variety of parrot - 12 inches from beak to tail. Again, can't remember the type. Brilliant colour ! Part of his family !
I hope your weekend was nearly as colourful !
