137/365: Shoe Tree.
A closeup on that shoe tree in Norval. I came back after I noticed that the tree has blooms on it this time of year! Took a few photos before tossing on the zoom lens and getting a few closeups.
This is the kind of photo that a DSLR is less ideal for. No, I just jammed my iPhone in between the cables and took the photo. It’s a network switch for ethernet connections in my wife’s office.
135/365: Waves of Decay.
Well, they haven’t torn down my favourite abandoned gas station yet so I’m back for another bit of decay photography. Looks like some vandals were trying to peel back the siding. Also looks like they stopped when they got to the paper wasp nest behind one of the panels (instant karma). This is the paint that’s peeling along the concrete foundation, which was white, then red, then blue. As the layers peel back there are parts that look like waves on a shoreline.
134/365: Pill Popping.
This pretty much defines my day today. Looks like that cold that has been going around caught up to me.
133/365: Orchard’s Last Light.
The sun sets on an apple orchard in the west part of Brampton. The image has a double meaning however as the urban development has started to surround it. In a few years, this will be a row of houses. Maybe a grocery store. In the meantime, the apple trees are putting on their best spring show with their white blossoms.
132/365: Soggy Aftermath.
My hiking boots, the day after we came out of the backcountry. To say they are wet is an understatement - a full 24 hours after they came off my feet they are barely starting to show signs of drying. Today the area had snow, heavy rain, hail and cold winds. Kinda glad we came home when we did, knowing I’d be coming back today with wet feet.
131/365: Sherborne Falls
A waterfall that can be found along the St. Nora Lake / Sherborne Lake portage in Algonquin Highlands Frost Centre area. Only reference to a name I can find for this waterfall is “Sherborne Falls” from the Algonquin Highlands website. This was a great stop on the way out before the snow starts. I have quite a few decent photos from this spot.
130/365: Sherborne Lake.
Went camping in the Frost centre area by canoe this weekend. Due to the weather we cut it short by a day. Here is the first place on the way in that I dared to pull out the “good” camera - we paddled across St. Nora Lake and Sherborne Lake in heavy rain and a noticable wind. By the time we arrived here our gear was soaked. Still, I very much enjoyed the view of this little island from our campsite on Sherborne Lake.
129/365: Dominion Tulips.
Yup, another tulip shot. Hey, it’s my project and I like tulips. These ones are growing at The Old Seed House garden in my neighbourhood. Bit tricky here with the evening sunlight blowing out the highlights but I found a way.
128/365: Downtown Tulips.
Wandered down to Georgetown’s downtown area tonight. Had the camera handy but literally right beside my parking spot they have packed enough tulips in the garden to definitely catch the eye. So, that’s one thing I pointed the camera at. Have I mentioned that I love tulips?
