Point

A sandy, rocky point on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario at sunrise. It’s pointing towards Chantry Island and its lighthouse on the horizon and on to Michigan on the other side of the lake.

Photographed in the mid 2000s, the water level in Lake Huron has since risen and this is all under water now.

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Point.

Focusing on the Details

This week Patti has given us the prompt Focusing on the Details for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

As Ontario is currently under the third Covid-19 lockdown I decided to look back at some of the details I photographed on my walks around the neighborhood while under the various lockdowns.

Colourful April

This is my contribution to Amy’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Colourful April prompt.

I decided to look back at some of colourful April photos from my archives. One for each decade since the 1980s with as wide a variety of images as possible.

Blob

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Blob.

On seeing the prompt I seemed to recall a 1950s horror movie called The Blob so I thought I would have some fun with it.

Skate Out to the Picnic Table

This is my contribution to Debbie’s Six Word Saturday challenge and to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things found on a picnic table or in a park prompt.

There’s nothing on this picnic table but it is in a park. Strangely, I’m writing this sitting in the same park using the WiFi hotspot as we have no internet connection at home.
