What a glorious Spring day it was yesterday. So, of course, John, Dan and I had to go on a little photo trip. Walking onto the beach I was struck by the intense blue colour of the shadow on this little part of the beach. It had just a hint of the warm colour from the early morning sunlight. An excellent beginning of the day.
Yesterday my friend Dan and I went to Sturgeon Falls and the village of Field to take some pictures. The weather in the morning was very nice with quite a bit of sunshine but just when we stopped off to have our lunch, it clouded over and then the rain started. We managed to get a few interesting pictures along the lake before returning home. All in all we had another satisfying little photo excursion.
On this beautiful early Spring day another North bay landmark was torn down. The old Thorn's farm on our street was demolished. it was actually not unexpected butt it was still sad to see the building quickly disappear. It has been there for a very long time and I made some wonderful photographs of the old place.
Spring has finally arrived, well I hope so because you never know. But this weekend was simply glorious. I took this picture yesterday morning on the waterfront in Callander. The colour of the scene and the chair simply symbolized the Spring and the promise of Summer.
Many people, who saw my posting yesterday, wondered if this old station could be restored. Well of course it is possible but at what cost. I know there are people in Mattawa who are trying to save this historic building. This morning I tried to find images of the station in its glory days and found an interesting picture on the Saskatchewan Archival Information Network. In its hey'day it was quite a busy place.So lets see what happens.
