A Rare Sight.....

At the Wheels on Wyandotte event a couple of weeks ago, I could not help but take a shot of this scene. In the foreground, is a fellow who had hand built his own motorcycle trike complete with a V8 automobile engine to "move" it along. He had a For Sale sign on it, and was obviously hoping for some interest in it. However, the thing that added to the overall mood of the picture was the "CLOSED" Tim Horton's store in the background. That is something that is rare indeed, given that Tim's is one of the top franchises in all of CANADA. The whole scene spoke to me of a certain degree of desperation that has been Windsor in the past few years since the collapse of the auto industry. Windsor has been making strides to rebound economically, but is still far from out of the woods yet. The general outlook for the City depends a lot on if you are a half empty or half full sort of person I guess......
