Urban Erosion

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Urban Erosion prompt.

One subject came to mind as soon as I started considering the prompt.

This is the abandoned grocery store in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. It has been standing empty for years and has become one of the more impressive eyesores around town. The roof was leaking badly when it was still in use so the interior could easily be in worse shape than the exterior.

Travel Tuesday

Cloudless at Dawn

Travel Tuesday this week is traveling back just over three years to Colpoy’s Bay at dawn in late autumn.

The water level in the bay has risen since this photo was taken and the old wood piles are now less visible.

2020: It’s A Small World

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: It’s A Small World prompt.

I’m using the prompt to look back at some of my close up photos from my walks around the neighborhood in 2020.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 11th January 2021

Tracks in the snow on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood.

The photo was monochromatic to begin with but I did a monochrome conversion to see how much different the two versions would look. There wasn’t a lot of different apart from the colour original having a colder colour balance. This is the monochrome version.

2020: In Monochrome

This week the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt is Shades of Grey.

As is sometimes the case, I started considering the prompt and went off on a tangent. I decided that my contribution to the prompt would be a look back at a small selection of monochrome images from 2020.

Monochrome Monday: 23rd March 2020

Paper Birch trees again the sky. Taken on a walk around the neighborhood during lockdown a day or two into spring.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Surprise

Backlit Maple leaves in early summer. Taken on another walk around the neighborhood.

Monochrome Monday: 12th October 2020

Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise in autumn. There was a few mornings last autumn when the cloud cover made me shoot monochrome images.
