YELLOW TRUCK WITH RED MAPLE LEAF

The blue grey colour of the house and the magnificent blue Summer sky with the strong contrast of yellow and red truck, is what attracted me to this otherwise mundane city landscape. I toned the overall colour down to accentuate the brightly coloured new truck.

STILL FOR SALE

This picture is for John and Bob, who both told me that the statue of Christ was still for sale. Last year I posted a picture of the same statue. But I guess the owner could not get the price he would like to get so he is displaying the statue again. I don't think it includes the angle I simply liked the subject and it certainly makes for an interesting garden design.

STREET ABSTRACT

This morning I was looking for some images on the computer, I came across this picture of a wall I photographed quite a few years ago in the Kitchener area. In my photo wanderings I am always interested in abstract painterly subjects. it probably comes from my interest in the visual arts.This complex subject rich in textures, colour and pattern  is a very intriguing image.

FEED SILO WITH RED HORSE TRAILER

Traveling along the road from Cache Bay to Verner, we stopped off at a farm with an interesting feed silo. I had photographed this silo many years ago when it still had a weather vane of a horse. The young farmer gave us a tour of the farm and explaned that his dad designed and built the silo using concrete building blocks which he poured himself using a mould he made himself. It must have been quite a job.

BLUE DOOR 13

Another image of one of the boat sheds in Cache Bay. It is the weathered surface of the wood and metal, which gives this picture such a strong visual effect.
