I photographed this strange sculpture, which I simply titled anguish. Because the scene looked very "Victorian" I simply made an image using that nineteen century hand coloured photographic process, reflecting that specific period character.
Thanks for your comment yesterday David. I have to agree with you that many folks are slowly fading away. Maybe we are too of course. Anyway I thought you might find this image appropriate. someone left this old armchair in a field next to an old storage shed. This shed is actually down our road and I did post some pictures of this old place. It might be a nice chair to spend a pleasant Summer afternoon reading or just contemplating life and enjoy nature..
After my trip to Cobalt, I got the idea of visiting all the various small towns in the area to see what their local museums look like and develop a photographic diary of my visits. This dress is part of the Callander museum collection.
In his last posting David Ernest asked if we had visited Laura's Art Shoppe. I regret to say we did not however I took a picture of the store and, after reviewing the webpage, I definitely will make it one of my first stops in Cobalt.
Yesterday it was a beautiful Summer day, so we made a little trip to the town of Cobalt and the city of Temiskaming Shores. We stopped in Cobalt where I took this picture of the Firefighters museum. I have taken many trips to the old mine and smelter sites of this small town but have not made many pictures of this very historical town itself.
Today is a good day for photographing my wife's garden. The garden is at its Summer peak and it looks great. I am not a gardener but enjoy the result of her hard work. After the setback two years ago, when we had to dig up the whole back yard to replace our septic system, the garden looks just magnificent.
Walking downtown Toronto I couldn't resist taking this picture of this motor rider pulling away from the curb. Again I felt that the black and white image was stronger than the colour version. It reminded me of the street photography from the fifties and sixties.
I enjoy visiting Toronto for a few days. Simply the atmosphere of a large city is something you need on occasion, not every day and I would certainly hate to have to commute to work every day but I still enjoy the noise and hustle of the downtown. It brings back many memories when we lived downtown after arriving in Canada.
