Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Narrow

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Narrow.

On reading the prompt my first thought was of canal narrowboats but I had used canals and narrowboats in a couple of posts recently so I decided to go with a different take on the challenge.

I started thinking about some of the narrow streets in some of the remaining medieval portions on some towns and cities. Which got me thinking about the city of Chester with its narrow streets and the city walls that are a mixture of Roman and Medieval construction.

This is the walkway across Eastgate and under the Eastgate Clock.

Walk under the clock and along the wall you come to the Phoenix Tower, it stands on the northeast corner of the city walls.

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.

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.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Framing The Shot.

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Framing The Shot.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge but nothing that stood out. But inspiration came when I was working on my Monochrome Monday post.

That’s when I realised that the wooden structure on Berford Street in Wiarton would make a real, if somewhat large, frame. So on Sunday afternoon I positioned myself to be looking out at the street through the structure.
