sketching 2 // bosquejando 2 by Frank.Hilzerman

second of the series - drawings of people drawing.
we were around Niagara Falls yesterday. it was gray, rainy and cold. but we were visiting an old tea house, tasting greens, whites and other kind of teas and picking some sweets there. it was really nice actually, although the ugly weather. in the car, psychedelic tunes from the '60s, Donovan, Procol Harum, the Mamas & the Papas... you know. and that's was for sunday. back home, dinner and a good tv series... today, a new week starts. have a great one, fellas!

in the party // en la fiesta

in the party // en la fiesta by Frank.Hilzerman

a sunny wednesday. but very cold. all the people walk with their hands into the pockets. it's the best sign to know if it's cold or not. anyways, good to see some sun and blue sky, despite the temperature.
last night started to watch 'Luther', the BBC TV series. excellent, totally recommended... if you like a good mystery crime thriller. british are the best doing this kind of production.
that's all for now. have a nice day!

belle // bella

belle // bella by Frank.Hilzerman

monday. here, the first signs of snow - the light one, it melts arriving the ground. cold and gray days. the weekend went pretty good: a very nice meeting with old friends. talking and laughing, you know how it is.
listening a lot of classical music the last days. something inside me was asking for a quiet, beautiful classical break.
normally I listen it on line. have some fave radio stations there:
icebergradio, kusc, accuradio, kdfc,  the excellent classicandjazz  and, of course, the torontonian 96.3fm.

enjoy them and have a great monday!

by night in the city // por la noche en la ciudad

by night in the city // por la noche en la ciudad by Frank.Hilzerman

my wishes of a very nice weekend, my friends. here, a sunny morning, but a deceiving one - very cold outside. actually, it´s the first morning in which all the roofs I see from my windows are white. think that during the night temps went deep below zero. nothing unexpected - we all know winter is coming sooner or later. and there is nothing to do about that. only to prepare warmer clothes.
see you, guys...

walking the dog // paseando el perro by Frank.Hilzerman

fall is here. with it, rainy days, gray skies, wet streets. umbrellas and jackets coming out of closets.
it's colder but, anyways, fall has also it's beautiful angle. the long sunsets, the color of the trees...
september 21st and officially the fall is here. if you want or if you don't. convince your partner to go out and invite your pet also. have fun!

nesting at Pier 4, Hamilton, ON

a barn swallow (Hirundo rustica) nest at Pier 4, Hamilton:



the nest is found under the roof of this shed:


and pay attention, the barn swallow is in danger in Ontario, so everybody can help them - a starting point can be to know a little more about this beautiful bird.
