While in Vancouver for work late September, was able to find time for an afternoon walk along the board walk and partway across the Burrard Street Bridge for this picture. We are looking into False Creek, Granville Island and the (famous?) Bridges restaurant painted yellow. Vancouver is a pretty sweet city to visit, particularly on days like this with the fresh ocean air.
Fantastic performance by Johnny Reid this past week in St. Catharines, singing only Christmas songs from his ‘My Kind of Christmas’ tour. This was my first introduction to Johnny Reid and will say he did not disappoint. More than any singer I’ve seen – ok similar to Sarah McLachlan – he has a way of involving the audience that makes you feel part of the show. Guess it helps there were a cozy 3,500 people in the arena 🙂
Looking into the Atlanta Braves baseball field, known as the Chop House, from the Omni Hotel in the Battery district of Atlanta. Its the end of October in this picture, and into the World Series featuring the Astros and Nationals. The Braves last played September 29. The ballpark looks fantastic and ready for another game. Kind of wish our SkyDome/Rogers Centre had this feel!
Can someone call up Cottage Life magazine and tell them we have their next front cover right here? Sometimes the lighting and mother nature just works in your favor… Very thankful to our friends for hosting us this weekend at their cottage on North Muldrew Lake, south of Gravenhurst. Sunset was at 4:56pm and this is around 5:15pm Saturday, during a period called blue hour. It works particularly well when there is fresh white snow to reflect the light. Going to print this on canvas as a thank you gift!
We are a few minutes after 8am on Saturday October 26, standing on the Dundas street overpass looking south down 16 Mile Creek. The sun came over the trees about 15 minutes ago, slowly bringing light and life as the birds got going. Mist from the creek rose and a sun haze stretched out across the tree canopy.
Two horses paid a fair amount of attention to me as I walked by while at the Bracebridge fall fair. My own curiosity picked, I took a few pictures and then watched them watch me for quite some time. Looking at the photo afterwards, it sure feels like they want to start a conversation. Or maybe their trying to say ‘leave us alone’!
We hit peak color this week in the Baysville area, punctuated by a bright sun and shadows of the forest. This is along Browns Brae Road, a gravel route connecting a few of the lakes in the Lake of Bays Township.
