Natural Patterns on the Bay

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Patterns in Nature prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of some of the ripples on Colpoy’s Bay I had photographed in the six months the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions were lifted a little.

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.

Bridges

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

As the prompt is plural I decided to go with two very different bridges about 20 miles apart in Cheshire, England.

Weekly Prompts: The Bridge

Canal lift bridge in the village of Wrenbury, Cheshire. When a canal boat comes along the bridge is raised using a winch. The bridge was designed by the Scottish civil engineer Thomas Telford in the 1790s.

CFFC: Bridges

The Weaver Railway Viaduct in Northwich, Cheshire. Technically this is a viaduct but the two steel sections in the center are bridges over the River Weaver and the Weaver Navigation. Also, one of the stone arches is a road bridge over London Road, Northwich. Edited to give the image a grungy, aged look.

Catching People Unaware

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Catching People Unaware prompt.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of my photo of the track invasion at the end of the Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle race. I edited all the digital copies of the slides recently which is probably why it came to mind.

Monochromatic Ripples

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Water prompt and also my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #54 Photo Challenge.

One from my slide archives I discovered while looking for abstract photos. It may not look like it’s a colour original but this is a Kodachrome slide that hasn’t been converted to monochrome.

The ripples were photographed on the River Weaver in southern Cheshire, England in the mid 1980s. The more I look at the photo the more the ripples remind me of old fashioned cobblestones.
