January Squares: Imperial Tower at Twilight

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

First I must admit that I cheated a little with the title of this post. The official name for the lighthouse is the Chantry Island Lightstation Tower. Although it is more commonly known as the Chantry Island lighthouse locally.

It is an Imperial Tower, one of six built around the Bruce Peninsula on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay in the 1850s. No one seems to know where the Imperial Tower name came from.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Communication

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Communication.

I thought about how quickly the smartphone has taken over as a means of communication, not just phone calls but texting and email.

Then I spotted a payphone and thought about how they had almost disappeared.

Edited to give the photo the look of an old film shot.

October Squares: Red Lines in the Sky

This is my contribution to day 31 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge. The final day of the challenge so a sunset seemed appropriate.

A big thanks to Becky for another interesting and entertaining Squares challenge.

Lake Huron, Sand and Sunrise

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Sun, sea and sand.

Currently living in Ontario, Canada I’m a long way from the nearest salt water. But I am close to some of the sandy beaches of Lake Huron.

So here’s a sandy, fresh water beach at sunrise. The giant Canadian flag and flagpole at the bottom of High Street, Southampton, Ontario is visible above the horizon. A digital capture, I added a Polaroid type border to the image.
