A Tribute to Jerm IX

Somehow I often catch people at a crossroads in their life. This time Jerm IX, Jeremy Bertrand, is evolving from his old persona and into something else. Leaving much of the old Jerm IX behind. I found his note about this on his Facebook account, the day after he posted it.

I haven’t especially tried to find him before this. I’ve seen his urban exploration photos from around Ontario on Flickr and his Jermalism and Abandonment Issues blogs. Also, for a short time a JermIX web domain. It just happened that I photographed an interesting place which I looked up (to see what it was) and found his post as the best source, with more photos taken years ago. His was more than a post about exploring an old place. He had written about himself, his past and the future he was looking forward to. Leaving behind Jerm IX is now a part of that.

So this is posted as a little tribute to Jerm IX and a thank you to Jeremy with wishes for good things in his future.

Bitterly Cold and Windy at the Kinghorn Cemetery


It was biting, bitterly, cold and windy at this little cemetery, called the Kinghorn Cemetery. Located north of Toronto. I like the gravestones with flowers, or something else unique and pretty but not especially religious. This cemetery seemed to have more stone flowers than most, considering the small size of the place.

Little Angel in the Corner at the Union Loyalist Cemetery


I visited here a few years ago but the gate was locked. This time it was open so I went inside and photographed every gravestone, details of the engraving and sculpture and all around the angel in the back corner. This is located in Burlington and cared for by the city. It isn’t hard to find but likely gets missed by people driving by. It is being crowded out by valuable shopping mall real estate, but it is still there.
