Skate Out to the Picnic Table

This is my contribution to Debbie’s Six Word Saturday challenge and to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things found on a picnic table or in a park prompt.

There’s nothing on this picnic table but it is in a park. Strangely, I’m writing this sitting in the same park using the WiFi hotspot as we have no internet connection at home.

Bigger than a Bread Box

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Bigger than a Bread Box prompt.

This is a Citroen 2CV, also known as a Deux Chevaux (two horsepower). Launched in 1948 as a low cost, easy to maintain vehicle for farmers and others to take their produce to market. No doubt a few were used by bakers to take their bread to market.

The way the roof rolls back reminds me of the way some bread boxes open. I hadn’t noticed the picnic basket until editing the photo, bigger than a bread box and there could be bread in it.

Urban Erosion

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Urban Erosion prompt.

One subject came to mind as soon as I started considering the prompt.

This is the abandoned grocery store in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. It has been standing empty for years and has become one of the more impressive eyesores around town. The roof was leaking badly when it was still in use so the interior could easily be in worse shape than the exterior.

Cosmic Photo Challenge

12 months ago

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Christmas is coming prompt.

The prompt started me thinking about how much has changed since Christmas was coming a year ago. That got me thinking about the Santa Claus parade in the local town.

There was no parade this year, instead you could make an appointment to walk past Santa last Saturday evening.

Normally the parade involves travelling two blocks along the highway through town. This year the highway is ripped up for the replacement of water mains and sewers.

Between Covid-19 and construction work there wasn’t a chance of a parade this year. So here’s a couple of photos from last year.
