“Bought a beat up six string in a secondhand store, didn’t know how to play but he knew for sure…” (Lyrics from Juke Box Hero by Foreigner)
This afternoon, after arriving home from Montreal, I did some running around. The sky was boring and it was windy and cold out. So I decided to set up a shot indoors. I used an antique slide projector for a prop. I photographed it at a pretty big aperture so that only the lens in the front is in focus.
This morning I was sitting in the Air Canada lounge at Toronto Airport and as I was about to leave to head to my gate and I happened to glance outside. In one direction it was crazy windy and pouring rain and in the other, a spectacular sunrise! This shot is out the window at the lounge looking towards the control tower.
Late this morning I dropped by Woodland Cemetery. It was raining slightly but I thought I would check out the Owls. No Owls were around and I did not see any other birds at first either. As I was walking back to my vehicle I noticed this shape up in the tree right beside my vehicle. What looks like a young Hawk was having his lunch, I believe a small bird that he had caught.
This morning I had to drive to Belleville for an appointment. After passing through Oshawa along Highway 401 I happened to glance south towards the lake and I noticed these big, beautiful, black clouds and the sun streaming through some holes in the clouds creating awesome beams. I hummed and hawed about getting off of the highway since I did not want to be late for my appointment. I decided to take the next exit and gave myself 15 minutes. I found the Port of Newcastle marina and what to my surprise and delight but a completely ice covered lighthouse and waves crashing up against the short pier. Add that to the beautiful sky and I would say Mother Nature was yet again being kind to me and showing me the beauty she can create.
