"Reddy" or Not!

A little holiday bundle wrapped in red for you...


City sidewalks dressed in holiday cheer.


Outdoor skating rink overlooked by big bird.



Canadiana-themed wintry window displays.


Mad dash of last-minute shopping!


Tree-topped tower against darkening sky.


Fuel.


A cozy corner to curl up in
with the good company of a faithful friend.

Ready or not, it is upon us...

Merry Christmas to one and all!


(I hope you nailed all your Christmas shopping!)

    1. May you find the focus, quietude, and inner peace that you seek and be filled with infinite joy, Christine! Even if it flickers on and off like a faulty connection on the Christmas tree lights.

    1. But Michael, I don't live in the Ottawa area!! I'm usually in New Brunswick on the Fundy shores...unless I'm on the west coast as I am now. Nevertheless, your "merry Christmas" is very gratefully received and sent back to you, albeit belatedly. Not it's time to wish you a very Happy New Year!

  5. Lynne, what wonderful shots! I feel the bustling city. The top photo has such a cubist feel and there's something about that liquor store that makes me want to linger... Tanti auguri!!

    1. Oh, I love that Cubist take on the first pic! I hadn't thought of that. It was fun to dash to town and absorb some of the buzz. Nothing quite like it. Would it be the red wines in the liquor store that make you want to linger? Probably not, with all available in Sicily. Tanti auguri to you, too, Jann!! xo

    1. Thanks, Hilary! I had such a fun, albeit quick trip to town! I went in mostly to grab a few pix and was not disappointed. Glad you like the results.
