Red barn

Here’s one I took last summer, near Port Hope Ontario. This was a second attempt. The first time around a stunning sunset was hitting the barn, surrounding fields and water tower.

Much to my chagrin on returning home, I found that my SD card had munched it. I think the problem was that I either switched the card among cameras without reformatting. Or maybe I did a Windows format instead of an in-camera format.

In any case, I lost the first photo. So this one was a retry, taken several weeks later. Instead of stunning sunset we have haze and mist.

Oh well. It’s still okay.

When all else fails…

Here comes the sun – Instagram / Tumblr

Lay down and take a picture…

Cold weather and other factors have kept me penned up in the city like a rat in a cage. Yesterday, the sun came out and the weather forecast spoke to warmer temperatures today. Just after taking this I managed to get outside the gates of the machine (a metaphor I often use for how it feels getting outside the urban perimeter) for a nice country drive.

Today is warmer. This photo was the turning point.

went for a country drive yesterday… turned off this road to clean the windshield as it was getting dark.. turns out the road’s sole existence is to test paint strips! it’s a dead end… or is it..?

In Ontario we generally don’t paint our fences white as in parts of the USA. To me, that looks sort of hokey. But I guess it’s all a matter of what you’re used to.

I got out of the city yesterday, stopped here at Tim Hortons for some eats and coffee. Really nice spot, out in the middle of nowhere. Listened to Hank Williams Sr. for the entire trip…

For those outside of Canada, that’s a Canadian Tire gas station outside, lights mingling with those inside.
