Lake Huron shoreline at dawn

Throwback Thursday travels back 12 years to a dawn over a section of the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.

Taken from The Long Dock looking towards the flagpole at the bottom of High Street and the range light at the mouth of the Saugeen River. The flagpole and flag are visible above the horizon.

Another small town in Ontario, Canada. This is the old grocery store in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula. Replaced by a new store on the other side of the town it’s been standing empty for years becoming a bigger eyesore by the month. You would think a town trying to attract more tourists would do something about it.

Friendly Friday: Ignored.

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Ignored.

My first thought was of some of the wildlife species that have ignored me when I was photographing them. I thought that idea was to obvious so I watched out for things that are ignored while wandering around Southampton, Ontario, Canada early on Saturday morning.

That was when I noticed people that are probably ignored by a lot of people. Most visitors to the town will never think about people emptying the garbage cans and watering the flower displays.

First there was a council worker emptying the garbage cans on High Street in Southampton.

I thought of a few traditions before thinking of one I have photographed over the past 20 years at various locations. The tradition of fireworks on Canada Day.

Preening immature Red Knot.

Throwback Thursday travels back to 2006 and an early morning visit to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton for the sunrise.

I found some immature Red Knot on the shoreline and spent some time with them. After a while they were comfortable enough to feed, bath and preen while I photographed them.
