Here is another photo from the family outing that finally brought me to my local train bridge (kudos to Liz Klassen for taking us here and taking some pictures of us). Here is one of the best views in my home town Jordan (/Lincoln), Ontario of one of the bits coming off of the Jordan Harbour on Lake Ontario.
Local History 001
This is (I believe/didn't research this) an old piece of the train bridge that ran through Lincoln, Ontario in Jordan. Lincoln (/Jordan) is my home town, and for some unjustifiable reason, I had never been on our local train bridge, a problem which a family outing remedied.
"Another in a long line of somewhat stark looking urban landscape photos."
Here is just that. One of the various, ambiguously abandon industrial lots and buildings in St. Catharines. This shot is beautiful if I do say so myself.
"Blue brush strokes in the sky mean rain is near by."
I took this photo during one of my many visits to Municipal (Sunset) Beach in St. Catharines. This park is tremendously interesting for a number of reasons: firstly, the beach itself, which is positioned perfectly to watch the sunset, and on clear days, see Toronto; secondly, one-third of the park is greenery with beautiful tall trees right beside the beach; and thirdly, just across from the water is the Port Dalhousie Sewage Treatment Plant which means that this beautiful, natural space is tainted by the smell of human waste.
Lake is Eating Lakeside Park
This is the beach in Lakeside Park on July 22, 2017 in Port Dalhousie, St. Catharines. Port Dalhousie was one of the first places in Niagara to experience the effects of climate change very visibly with long-term flooding. Months later, and much of Lakeside Park is still underwater. The posts here are for beach volleyball nets (or rather, they used to be).
"Occasionally, Novar looks quite ominous."
This is a photo of the landscape that greeted me when I got off the highway in Novar, Ontario, where my family goes 'Up North' every year. The area is stunning, and when I think of the natural environment of Canada, this place is where I see. The clouds and black & white spell the kind of gloom I crave in landscape photography.
