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.
