halloween is coming

halloween is coming

At the end of the summer I stumbled across this old barn on a country drive. It was a fantastic sunset with a rippled effect over the fields. I took several shots but all the files came out corrupted, probably cos I didn’t format the card properly.

So I go back and take this. Nowhere near the original scene, even tho it’s the same scene, just several weeks later. Moral of the story. You can’t step in the same field twice (from Heraclitus, “you can’t step into the same river twice”.. i.e. change is the name of the game).

Here’s another shot taken with a SONY (first was a Canon; both have been edited for contrast):

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.

Took this one last night. It’s an area that my grandfather used to frequent as a country doctor and MPP. Hence the old time filter.

Old and New

I’m fascinated by the contrast between old and new. I like both, although I hate to see the countryside gobbled up by munchkin homes… you know, those faceless carbon copy sub-developments that all look the same.  This was taken near Port Hope Ontario. I’d just stopped by a Service Center to have a stretch and liked the old barn off in the distance.
