A Photo a Week Challenge: Shades of Pink.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Shades of Pink.

I decided to go with three photos taken on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.

Throwback Thursday only travels back 12 years. At the time I was living in Southampton, Ontario, Canada on the Lake Huron shoreline.

I had recently purchased a new digital camera. The results from the camera had convinced me to finally stop shooting film alongside digital. Although I must admit that one of the reasons for stopping shooting film was the difficulty of getting transparency film processed. Slides had been coming back from processing labs covered in scratches and water marks for some time.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Your Choice.

As this is the first anniversary of the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge the subject has been left to the contributors this week with the prompt: Your Choice.

After having a few thoughts for the challenge I came up with the idea of photos taken during the blue or golden hour, one for each decade starting with the 1970s.
