Rail nail circle made from old used discarded black colored CNR or CPR iron road spike fasteners assembled wheel shape style.

The scene is in Stuart Hall in Pte. Claire, where several Quebec artists exhibited their works marking Canada’s 150th Anniversary this past summer.

Exhibits were displayed both inside the Stuart Hall building as well as outside on the grounds of this famous old former mansion now a community center.

Circle of Approval

Circle of approval etched on plate glass means environmental standards excellence.


This circle of approval etched on plate glass at a downtown high-rise building signifies excellence.

=======================================================================================================
This circle of approval etched on high-rise building plate glass shows structure met environmental standards excellence.

It is a ‘Silver’ award from LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) CANADA Green Building Council that uses an internationally approved rating system to signify excellence. Apparently, this particular structure meets their approval for “sustainability” in its design, construction, and operation then again, according to their website this building shares this honor role along with over 5000 other ones across Canada.

This etching caught my attention when I was taking pictures last summer of a whole lot of construction work happening nearby. I was curious what it was all about and decided to check things out later on the Internet however, as insurance against my memory lapsing I captured it with my digital camera.

This is my contribution to this week’s WP photo challenge “CIRCLE”.
