A Photo a Week Challenge: Urban.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Urban.

My initial thought was that I don’t do urban before thinking of urban Red Foxes. At that point I started thinking about some of the flora and fauna I have photographed in urban areas.

A grab shot. I had gone down to the lakeshore to checkout the ice conditions only to find this section of Lake Huron ice free.

I keep an old digital camera in the car along with a couple of telephotos from the 1980s. The 300mm I used dates back to the mid 1980s and has suffered over the decades. It has some fungus internally that I keep in check by baking the lens in the oven occasionally.
