As I was walking to the subway, I came upon this woman, sitting on the fence around these flowers, smoking a cigarette and looking like she was waiting for her close-up. Naturally, I asked her if I could take her picture and after initially being somewhat taken aback, she agreed and provided this fine street portrait.
The Portage Road, an ancient First Nations pathway becomes Main Street in town (a bit like Broadway in New York). The area where Main Street crosses Ferry Street is filled with pawnbrokers and payday lenders.
Continuing along Ferry Street we came to the Drummond Hill Cemetery and the Lundy’s Lane Battlefield Park, both rather beautiful and showing off much of what we’d just learned in the History Museum. Across the street from the Cemetery, on the outskirts of the Niagara Falls Christian Ministries and in the shadow of the Advance Inn, were these lonely straggler graves, their inscriptions wiped away by history.
