Weekly Winners #27 - Aug/03 to Aug/09

 
Today's winners come from the little (and beautiful) town of Tweed, Ontario
We were on our way back from Skootamatta Lake, when we saw these fire hydrants so beautifully decorated.
 
I stopped every 100 metres to take pictures (it was raining, so some are not too good). I hope you like them!
 
 
Ganadores de la Semana
 
Los ganadores de hoy provienen del pequeño (y hermoso) pueblo de Tweed, en Ontario.
Estábamos camino de vuelta desde el Lago Skootamatta, cuando vimos estos postes hidrantes tan hermosamente decorados.
 
Paré cada 100 metros para sacarles fotos (estaba lloviendo, así que algunas no son muy buenas. Espero que les gusten!

  1. Those are soo awesome! I have seen this done before, the ones that you have here are great. Too bad we don't have anything like that around here. I think they are so much nicer than a regular ol hydrant.

  11. Those are so much fun! Thanks for the tour.I am from the Dallas area and a few years ago they did this with cow sculptures (since it's TX, I guess...)and they were all over the city. It was fun to spot them around town.

  14. Those are adorable! I love things like that. Sometimes I'll see a big water tower painted something interesting when we travel. There's one in Georgia that is painted to look like a peach.That last one is my favorite! :-)

  19. Cute hydrants! We have painted penguins all over our city. I want to say they were originally to advertise a new exhibit at our zoo, but I don't remember for sure. I do know they were raffled off and businesses from all over the city paid a pretty penny to 'adopt' them.
