Every night when I turn on my computer I am reminded of how few and far between my blog posts have been lately. It’s certainly not because of a lack of photos because I have pictures from back in March that I still haven’t shared with you yet. As I mentioned before, I backed off on blogging this summer so that I could sit outside and read every free moment, but what’s my excuse now? None really – I think I just need to get back into the swing of things.
I was randomly clicking my way through my photos tonight trying to figure out where to start, but I am feeling a little bit discombobulated (I love that word :)) tonight after a busy day at work, so I decided to post this photo for no other reason than it popped out at me. A few weeks ago Mike and I drove up to Owen Sound to see the Tall Ships which were going from port to port to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812. Unfortunately, the setup and safety rules meant that unless we had bought boarding passes (which we did not), we couldn’t even get close enough to take pictures of the ships. There were other displays to see, but I was disappointed that I had to go home without any tall ship photos. However, if you look around with your eyes truly open, you can always find something unique to photograph, and I ended up totally engrossed in taking pictures of the harbour and a huge steel cargo ship, which actually led to some very interesting captures.
This photo, in particular, appealed to me because of the varying colours and textures of the water, the wood pilings, and the ship in the background. It also made me curious as to how the rocks ended up on the top of the pilings. What do you think? Did birds carry them there for something fun to do, or had people walking by been taking target practice? Whatever the case, I just love this photo.
Ooh, ooh, I just realized that this is my 500th post!! When I started my blogging journey on a whim, I never thought it would result in 500 posts. Wow, time really does fly when you are having fun :).
