I love the ornate brickwork of Victorian-style commercial architecture in the downtown heritage district of Stratford, Ontario. This view shows second floor windows of Blowes Cards & Gifts on Wellington Street.
This is a detail of an art installation in Stratford by artist Mark Czajkowski called tir na nOg - Land of Youth. It is an ornate metal gateway from Downie Street into a small park. Tir na nOg is a popular otherworld in Irish mythology thought to be on an island far beyond the edges of maps and reachable only by a long, challenging journey or by invitation from a fairy who lived there.
