Our Modern Stonehenge

Photography, Uncategorized

This is one of my favourite places in Ajax.

Friend bought a tree in spirit of my late husband several years ago. Most springs we come down here to see the tree and have a picnic to celebrate his life. The kids usually want to come up here after.

It’s a commemorative abstract Stonehenge that sites on a small hill on the site of the old water treatment plant. You can come here and look at the lake. Or the stars if you are lucky. Come here Easter weekend and you are likely to find the the big old moon rising over the lake.

In the history of art, light often depicts God or a spiritual aspect. These days we might be more inclined to think of visitors from other worlds.

Industry at Night

I have no idea what this place is.  It makes a lot of noise at night and it glows. It seems alive. And to me, at least, mysterious.

Ajax is full of industrial buildings. It’s amazing how you can live in a place for so long and yet never really look at it. So many places here that we all just drive by. Not wanting to see it. Thinking of where we have to get to next. Checking our cell phones.

I wouldn’t swear to it because I got this off the internet, but I believe that this is Axalta Coating Systems which produces performance and transportation coatings. Their slogan is “Simply Brilliant”.  They are an international company with principal locations in Philadelphia, Switzerland, Pennsalvania US, Mexico, Singapore, Shanghia and have approximately 13,000 employees. Here they are quietly in Ajax, too.

They have 47 training centres around the world to help their customers get the best out of their coatings and colour tools. Ajax is one of them.
