Rural Picture from the Lost Motel

I took a photo of this before the fire. Thought I would get another photo in the morning, in better light. Never had any thought that there would be a fire. Wish I had taken it off the wall when we ran out and brought it back with me. I really like this. Never even had the chance to find out if there was an artist name on it.

I like the colours and the atmosphere/ mood of the scene. Kind of has that feeling of an abandoned place out in the middle of nowhere. Though nothing looks ruined, it seems lost.

The Uprooted House

 

 

 

I’m not sure which street this was on. I got a bit turned around in my directions when I came along the street to see this house. I had to turn back and of course took advantage of the wide space for turning in front of this old place. It is in Aurora, near Vivian and Bayview (my best guess). I’m not sure why all the photos came out so light. I think it might be the weather. Very cold and snowy today. Welcome to Spring, eh?

More from the Grave…




More pictures from that cemetery I went to the other day. None turned out as well as I would have liked. But, right after my battery gasped it’s last breath the light changed and became much more filtered and greyish. That would have made a huge difference in my pictures. None would have been too light then. Still, I’m very glad it’s a digital camera and I have the battery charger now. It would be a lot more expensive and frustrating otherwise. Now I can learn as I go and not feel bad about the disaster I leave behind me.

Cemetery Photos



I took these today at an old Catholic cemetery near Tottenham. Most of the stones on one side were easily over a hundred years old. The church had been preserving or propping up many of them. Some had metal braces around the stones and others had been cemented back together. It was nice to see people looking after them.

This one was the most unique looking. One picture turned out too light but the darker one shows the wooden log look. It was the only one like this there and was up close to the back of the church. I’ve seen a few others like this, I really like them even though I also love the engraved and carved stone too.
