Kingston – A Walk to Town

“Photo ops” are everywhere in Kingston.  Brick and rock facades, elegant balconies, ornate porches, iron fire escapes, wonderful old trees – where does one start? At the first opportunity I set off on a “camera walk” to capture the sights that would remind me of the rich history of this beautiful city. The downtown area has many stately buildings. This city has made excellent use of its heritage buildings opting to keep them useful rather than replacing them with modern blandness.

I walked the streets for awhile recording the interesting sights I came across.

 

 

Kingston’s skyline illustrates the heritage buildings found on many streets.

Beautifully presented homes can be found on many of Kingston’s residential streets.

 

Fire escapes hang on the fronts many downtown buildings.

 

The Kingston City Hall in its park setting is a prominent part of the elegant landscape.

 

Even the birds compete for a seat at city government….

 

Tourists and locals love to gather at the waterfront and even take a tour on the paddle wheeler.

Locally brewed beers are a favorite of many….

 Watch for my next post that will feature Fort Henry and the Rideau Canal.
