Here's one I took in Hamilton last weekend that I thought was very suitable for Canada Day weekend.

One thing I love about photography is the opportunity to collect things without actually purchasing and/or owning them. For instance, I love these plaques but Davin would never allow me to decorate an entire wall of our living quarters like this. Never mind the cost of purchasing thirty Canada souvenir plaques. But that's okay because I have this photo. Although I did warn him several years ago that if we ever had a place that was big enough to allow each of us to have our own useless room that the walls of mine would be covered in metal souvenir food trays.

Here's a plaque wall photographed in a 'bargain basement' in Niagara Falls.
