I just happened to be taking photos of mailboxes the other day. When I saw this weeks challenge, I thought, how serendipitous!
I had read in the local paper that 3500 motorcyclist were going to be riding through. There were folks on the side of the road, ready to wave and show their support. These photos were taken at the Iroquois Locks.
The mission of the Ride for Dad is to raise funds for prostate cancer research. More information can be obtained on their website, http://support.pcff.ca/site/PageServer?pagename=RFD_14_Home.
Photo taken at the Aquatarium in Brockville, Ontario. There are no filters, no post processing. I just liked the colours as they were.
I took this photo while sitting in my car waiting for the train to go by. In the original photo, you could see my car mirror. I removed it using Photoshop, then used Pixlr to add masks and filters.
Yesterday, I was driving along my road when I came across a turkey vulture with his meal. When my car approached, it jumped on the nearest post. I happened to have my telephoto lens with me. I just had enough time to scramble to take the camera out, take a few shots, and then it flew away.
I have a particle board table that I left outside. After so much rain, and being exposed to the sun, it started to fall apart. The moulding on the side was the first part to fall off. This is what the interior of the table looks like. You can see the glue and the cardboard.
I was taking photos in Almonte, Ontario. They had bicycles for rent. They all had baskets and bells. The bells were all so shiny.
This year, I’ve purchased an iphone, downloaded photo filters. I’ve been having fun with that new form of art and technology. I still prefer ‘my old ways’, but new is not bad, it’s just different.
