This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts: The Street challenge.
It occurred to me when I was considering the prompt that I seem to have taken photos on the main street in the local town quite a few times since last summer. As a result I decided to go with a selection of shots taken on Berford Street in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.
Looking north early on a Sunday morning in the summer. Berford Street is actually Highway 6 that heads up to Tobermory at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula. It’s normally busy with tourists in the summer as there’s a ferry across Lake Huron that sails from Tobermory.
A similar view looking north before the start of the Wiarton Santa Claus parade in December.
The Pacific Hotel on the corner of Berford Street and William Street in the autumn. The slightly run down appearance of the buildings and the storm clouds sum up my feelings for the town at times.
Finally, looking south down the street at the various Christmas lights in December. I thought the wet highway reflecting the lights added to the scene.
This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Portal.
One portal came to mind as soon as I read the prompt. I’ve posted about this wooden structure on Berford Street in the town Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula previously. I still have no idea what it is supposed to be or represent.

This is Berford Street in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada approximately 45 minutes before sunrise just before Christmas. There’s quite a few different light sources with the various lights down the street.

The photos start several weeks before Christmas with a fire truck near the start of the Wiarton Santa Claus parade on the South Bruce Peninsula early in December.

Some Christmas baking, Viennese Shortcakes made with my mother’s recipe from the 1970s.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Squares and Rectangles.
Lots of rectangles and a few squares on Berford Street, Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula. After moving to the area 11 years ago the idea of a smoke shop and pool hall combination seemed old fashioned and now there’s a pawn shop next to it.
Honestly, it seems like the town of Wiarton is stuck in a time warp, going backwards in time while the rest of the county moves ahead.
