This afternoon I was in downtown Trenton and I was wandering around looking for interesting subjects. There were several to be found but my eye is more often than not drawn to unusual or abstract subjects. I found this old, steel staircase to a dilapidated building. It wasn’t so much the staircase that drew my eye but the rusty steel treads. I love this kind of abstract stuff!
This afternoon I was wandering along Concession Street in Hamilton. I stopped at one of the small parkettes and snapped a hot of the “uglier” parts of Hamilton. This is the area where Hamilton got its nickname of Steel Town. 2 big steel mills are located here. 1 is still in full production and the other is used occasionally. But as you can see from the image there is still lots of green in the city!
This morning I drove down to the Burlington Lift Bridge and walked around the piers. As always there were hundreds of gulls, geese and a few swans about. This is a shot of the gulls on a rocky outcropping with one of Hamilton’s steel mills in the background.
After an attempt to drive through freezing rain and a blinding snowstorm from Montreal to Quebec City this morning I got turned around by the Provincial Police since the roads were being closed. I made it back to Montreal and found this steel grate that was a wee bit colorful!
