Leslie Street


Apparently wild turkeys can fly. I saw it finally for the first time and this is my photographic proof and sequel on the sighting of wild turkeys in Aurora. I came back to see them the next day. I never got close to them, as interestingly enough, they kept moving away with every step I made towards …

My memories of the St. John’s sideroad open farmed fields are slowly fading away. Less and less I hear from some of my acquaintances, “it used to be such a nice relaxing drive between Bayview and Leslie.” Take a drive, no longer can one feel like that. My memory of the beautiful treed lot on …

I always thought that the shiny metal tag with an engraved number and attached to the tree trunk meant something. More like this tree will be preserved or never be cut down. My imagination runs wild sometimes since I am always on the side of the trees. Well, was I ever wrong. Someone told me this, a tree …

Perhaps this was a last farming activity done on the Addison-Hall Horse Farm located at 15775 Leslie Street, Town of Aurora, Ontario (on the east side of Leslie Street and south of St. John’s sideroad). This piece of land shown on both photos below is a few meters north where the green barn and the farm house used …

Currently we have four construction cranes in the Town of Aurora. All of them will be standing-out for a while but one. Two cranes are for high density residential developments and two are for a municipal/regional developments. Something we don’t think about everyday but the Town of Aurora is in the midst of a major growth spurt. …

I like log houses. I like brick houses too but I still like log houses more. I grew up in both. I enjoyed both. My great grandmother used to have a log house on the mountain side near a shallow river (Southern Poland). A beautiful sight. My grandparents nearby had a log animal barn attached …

Here are few images of the not developed and currently being developed St. John’s sideroad. If you look deeper into the picture that is where all the development is currently happening on both sides of St. John’s sideroad, West of Leslie Street. First few images were taken of the St. John’s sideroad East of Hwy …

Beautiful sunsets over the Town of Aurora do exist. In the middle of the field on the hill surrounded by critters in the grass and some unknown creatures hiding I stood there for almost one hour to capture this beautiful sunset. Last night it happened to be a very clear evening and I just didn’t …

Today I drove by the construction sites on Leslie Street and St. John’s Sideroad (Aurora) to see progress of the changing landscapes. Everything is moving fast. I thought that this year’s cold winter would slow things down – not a bit. Sometimes if I wait long enough to observe these places I tend to find …

Town of Aurora is inviting you to experience nature – or not? Definitely our town is going through a major urban sprawl and I am confident that this will be noted as an important moment in the history of the Town of Aurora. Some welcome the development but I find it sad though, and somewhat hard …
