Weekly Prompts: The Street

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.

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.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Outer Cold, Inner Warmth: The Comforts in Your Life

The latest Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt is rather long and Outer Cold, Inner Warmth: The Comforts in Your Life was giving me a problem coming up with a theme for the challenge.

After a couple of false starts I decided to go with a couple of photos taken when it was cold outside and one takes indoors in the warmth over the recent Christmas break.

I will start of on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise the morning after the winter solstice..

January Squares: Streetlights

This is my contribution to day five of Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

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.

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Show Us Your Christmas.

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.

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is Christmas Lights.

I decided to go with something a little different. A year ago I was on a side street for the formation of the Wiarton Santa Claus parade on the South Bruce Peninsula.

It was quite amusing, there was a selection of police vehicles at the head of the parade followed by a fire truck. After some discussion a local pipe and drum band marched past them all to lead the parade. The bagpipes and some of the drums had Christmas lights on them.

Here the band is marching past the fire truck heading to the front of the parade.
