The Riverdale “Wilds”, Cornwall, Ontario, Canada
July 22, 2010
The Riverdale “Wilds” can be a pretty dangerous place. The unsuspecting wanderer may have an unexpected encounter with a more ferocious member of the local fauna. In this case, it was a fine example of “Felis catus”, too busy scoping out the bird population to bother with an old guy and a camera. Fortunately, a life-long acquaintance with the old guy probably worked in his favour, too. Note the intense stare and the needle-sharp claws.
This would be Benny, poor Stewie’s nemesis and fellow contestant in the house-wide p*ssing contest.
Roughing it in the Riverdale “Wilds”. The sacrifices we make and discomforts we endure for our art. Would you believe the condensation on that water glass actually dripped on to my shirt?
