This was one of the other displays at the “design for the other 90%” exhibit. This one isn’t that much of an innovation in my opinion. I saw bikes piled with waaaaay more than this on my last trip to India.

I saw this in front of the U of T athletics centre. Not sure why his hame is JackLD…but i think the PHE stands for physical education. Love the muscles…

I took this picture biking back downtown from the west end in the evening. I’m at King and Tecumseth I think. Why is it pronounced “Teh-cum-see”?

I saw this at an exhibit at OCAD called “Designing for the other 90%”. Apparently most products today are designed for the rich 10% of the worlds population. This life straw is an example of a device designed for the other 90%.

Is it wrong that I want one for canoe trips?

At Tonya’s Late Grandfather’s home in St. Jacobs. Old order Mennonites would come by with their horse and buggies so he had to have a horse hitch at the end of his driveway.

I love taking pictures of reflections. This one is from Tonya’s mom’s Christmas tree.
