Oh October, where did you go?! You came and went just like that. October has been a ridiculously busy month and in a blink, it has passed us by. I have a ton of photos to catch up on, so might as well get started. I’ve got dogs and plenty of landscape photos showcasing the beautiful change of seasons, as well as some cool photos from a place called Screaming Heads up in Burks Falls, Ontario. and even a few from Toronto. I hope you enjoy and I hope you all had a great month of October, too. 🙂
We have a biathlon team that uses our property to train
And then we went to visit Screaming Heads, located in the cute sleepy town of Burks Falls, Ontario, Canada. The huge property, castle and sculptured gardens of an old farm belong to Canadian artist and sculptor, Peter Camani is most commonly known as Screaming Heads.
People are free to take a walk around the property at their own risk and that is exactly what we did. We’ve been there a handful of times over the last ten years and every time, it does not disappoint. This time around, we ran into Peter and we were able to chat with him a bit. One thing I had wanted to ask him was, where were his Emu that walked the property that I had previously seen years before? What he told us, was something very tragic, though. See, every year, the have a huge Harvest Festival and a couple of years ago, some of the festival goers were drinking cans of beer and they ripped off the tabs and threw them to the ground. It turns out that Emus like shiny objects and so, they ate them and it cut up all their insides and they basically bled to death. How freaking tragic is that!?! They were gorgeous creatures that made the strangest noises and they had the biggest, most beautiful eyes with stunning long lashes that you’ve ever seen.
Fun fact: Screaming Heads was once featured on MTV’s Extreme Cribs and is home to the annual Harvest Festival, which is a smaller scale of (I would say) Burning Man. If you’re ever in the area, do stop and check it out if you have an hour or two to walk around, and don’t forget your camera.
