A Second Helping of Images from Wheelers

I posted of last weeks birthday brunch with our relatives at the Maple Sugar Camp, concentrating mostly on people photos. Naturally I have more photos, and, quite naturally, you are pining to see them.


Above: the Forest & Farm Heritage Museum, containing the chainsaw exhibit (below). Henry's Garage to the far right houses a vintage vehicle that I show two photos below.

A little known fact: Crocodile Dundee spent his best years in the Canadian wilderness.
This is the vehicle inside Henrys Garage. Because there's a barrier in the way (see photo above), it is difficult to get a photo. I switched my camera to Live View, hung it over the barrier, and snapped three photos to cover the whole vehicle. I later merged them into a panorama in Lightroom and applied processing in ON1.
I have been to Wheelers so many times, that it isn't easy to get new photos, but I have never taken this shot before. I like the light and framing.
Inside the other museum, the Maple Syrup/Sugar one, I found two items that I hadn't previously noticed.



Sitting outside before our parting, I took this photo of reflections in the truck's grill.


Several miles past Wheelers, just before we turned on the main road back toward home, I stopped to take this photo of a truck that has apparently been put to rest down in a little hollow. I had noticed the truck on our way to Wheelers and managed to keep it in my deteriorating mind to take a picture later.


And for good measure, here is a pic of Brian and me at brunch that I could have posted at the beginning, but I wasn't sure that I was going to use it. I should have been wearing my cap too, but I had left it in the car. I processed it in a gritty way to suit two aging men.

These do look like old pictures from a family album. You have given them a nice feel.

These are great photos and I do love the black and white/sepia effect.

Vicki Lane said...

Wonderful pictures! I usually prefer color but these sepias and B&Ws are perfect.

Of course how did you know that I was waiting for a second group of photos from the Wheeler outing. My favorite this time was the people reflections. Curious too about that red truck i the hollow and wonder whether it was simply abandoned and will rust in place.
