If someone offers us the use of a boat, my hubby immediately grabs his fishing rod and tackle box, and I grab…..wait for it……my camera, of course :). So, when my cousin asked us if we wanted to take a boat out while at his resort in Port Loring, Ontario a couple of weekends ago, we jumped at the chance. I had packed a lot of warm clothes for that weekend seeing as it was September and the weather had started to change already, but that day was warm and sunny, and we had a blast out on the water. No, the fish weren’t biting very much, but for Mikey trying was almost as fun as catching because it was relaxation that he hasn’t experienced since before the summer rush began at his work.
So, we puttered around the lakes, and while Mikey was tempting the fish with juicy worms and colourful lures, I snapped pictures of anything and everything. After taking the standard scenic lake and shoreline photos, I started looking around for unique shots – anything that caught my eye in some way, but wasn’t the standard photo. On our way back to the resort, we passed an old, falling down boat house, and I snapped multiple pictures from various angles, but it was when I zoomed right in on the side of the boathouse that I got my favourite shot. Other people might wonder what the heck I took a picture of this for, but I love the colours and textures, and the way the scene is illuminated perfectly by the sun. This is one of those shots that I find keeps my eyes busy for minutes at a time, examining every little detail. What do you think? Do you like unusual shots like this?
