Cee’s B & W: Things Made From Wood.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things Made From Wood.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of some photos from the early 1980s. I decided to go with one photo from last summer and one from 36 years ago. Both feature some old, weathered and worn wood.

First, an interior of a ward in a former small pox hospital. I documented the hospital prior to the site being cleared in the early 1980s. The site was being developed to make way for new medical research facilities.

The remains of wood piles sticking out of the water on Colpoy’s Bay, South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. Taken last year, I couldn’t take the shot this summer as the water level in the bay is up this year. Only the tips of the tallest piles are sticking out of the water at the moment.

Saturday morning of week 35 saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. Another sunrise with no interesting cloud meant that once the sun was above the horizon I was looking for ripples and reflections.

The photo shows a row of old wood piles in Colpoy’s Bay. The sun is above the Niagara Escarpment in line with the right edge of the piles.
