Ile de Re Shadow Photos

On my trip to Ile de Re last month, I went out in the late afternoon one day and the light was just gorgeous. I started to notice the strong and graphic shadows of the trees on the buildings, garden walls, and doors. I’ve done a few other series of shadow photos in the past two years, and I’ve added this series to it.   Do you like these photos and do you have some favorites?   Please watch my la...

I Hung Out With 20 ‘Eco-Goats’ and It Was a Blaaaaast

It will likely come as no shock to you that I’m having a pretty unhappy time right now. I know I’ve got it pretty good, all things considered.

Coming to Gateway Green. The asphalt means it will be rideable in winter. Earlier this month we shared that a new pump track is coming to the Gateway Green bike park.

According to a source the new track will be about 600 feet long and 15,000 square feet in size. In a statement posted to Facebook yesterday, PP&R said...

Ile de Ré in the Fog

On the second morning when I visited Ile de Ré, when I opened the shutters of my hotel room, a thick fog blanketed the harbor. Although it was supposed to be sunny later in the day, I was thrilled by the sight of the fog, because we rarely have fog in Paris.   I immediately got dressed, and ran out of the hotel, even before eating their delicious breakfast and drinking thier strong coffee, to take photos. There’s a park area with lots of trees and walking paths along the sea. The fog cove...

Discrimination Exists Even in Commercial Tenancies

Those protesting from “diversity fatigue” often complain that some people will find indicia of subtle racism in almost everything. It’s like they dispute that these influences are subtle and pernicious, and can be found throughout the social fabric of our society. Fortunately the courts in Ontario disagree, finding in a commercial tenancy dispute in Elias Restaurant v. Keele Sheppard Plaza Inc. regarding a refusal by the landlord to renew a commercial lease. The concept of “prejudice” as used in...

Theme parks’ billion-dollar game of chicken

Disney, Universal and every other company that owns and operates theme parks have been playing a multi-billion-dollar game of chicken this year. Do you go ahead and open your new attractions in the middle of a pandemic, or do you hold them until the travel industry recovers? New capital drives attendance in the theme park business. But if an external circumstance such as a pandemic is going to keep people from visiting, is now the best time to roll out an expensive new investment? Or is now the ...

Rosa Parks' home displayed in Italy as US race tensions rise

The run-down, paint-chipped Detroit house where U.S. civil rights icon Rosa Parks took refuge after her historic bus boycott is going on display in Italy in a setting that couldn’t be more incongruous: the imposing central courtyard of the Royal Palace in Naples. It’s the latest stop for the house in a years-long saga that began when Parks’ niece saved the tiny two-story home from demolition in Detroit after the 2008 financial crisis.

Paris Trash Cans

You are probably scratching your head and possibly saying the following things about the above blog title, photo, and post below. 1. Has Richard lost his mind, flipped his wig, gone insane, lost his marbles, gone off his rocker, gone mad, gone bonkers, went mental, or went bananas? Poor thing, the lockdown really must have gotten to him.   2. Why is Eye Prefer Paris posting about trash cans? Is that the only thing going on in Paris right now?   3.

Rodin In His Garden At Musée Rodin

Dear Subscribers, Sorry about the error yesterday, when you received the blog Rodin In His Garden At Musée Rodin and it was about Panier de Sens. Here's the correct article for the Rodin In His Garden At Musée Rodin. Enjoy!  I can’t remember the last time I visited the Rodin Museum, so when I read there was a new exhibition, I returned.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller Are Heading to Miami to Produce a Cuban-American Family Comedy From Natalie Morales

Phil Lord and Chris Miller have been able to back such a strong string of hits that even attaching their name as producers on a movie can drum up interest in a movie.

Chris Farley and David Spade Got into a Huge Fight About Rob Lowe During ‘Tommy Boy’

Tommy Boy is a modern comedy classic, and it’s largely thanks to the real-life camaraderie between Saturday Night Live stars Chris Farley and David Spade. The two were best friends in real life, so pairing them up as frenemies makes for perfect comedic chemistry. But best friends can still fight, and that’s exactly what happened on the set of Tommy Boy, and it’s all because of co-star Rob Lowe. David Spade recently appeared on Rob Lowe’s podcast Literally!, inspired by his Parks and Recreatio...

To bridge ‘homework gap,’ LA parks facilities could serve as childcare, ‘learning centers’

Los Angeles parks facilities could soon look more like classrooms under a proposed program to convert 50 recreational centers in low-income neighborhoods into alternative learning and after-school centers for middle-school students. The program, which needs the approval of the Los Angeles City Council, comes as the Los Angeles Unified School District’s online classes have begun, forcing many parents to face the challenge of balancing work and finding adequate care and supervision for their child...
