17/365: Halton’s Most Expensive Tree.

Had a bit of luck for today’s photo. I went down to Halton’s Regional Centre on Bronte Street in Oakville for the flu shot clinic. Halton’s most expensive tree is next door and I decided to photograph this for today’s picture as I made my way here. The luck part comes from the snowstorm that blew in while I was busy getting a needle in my arm – and if there’s one thing I like is a bit of weather for a photo shoot. I call this Halton’s most expensive tree as the Region spent around $350,000 to route the highway expansion around it after public outcry to the proposal that they would remove it for an extra lane. Now the highway splits and goes around the tree.
