Company came on the weekend: Sue's niece and her daughter, whom we haven't seen for a very long time. We managed to keep one another quite busy. We spent a good chunk of Saturday at the Mill of Kintail, and headed out to Wheelers Maple Sugar Camp on Sunday.
Naturally, I took many people photos, but I am going to concentrate on those that appeal to me more photographically today. Either Sue or I or both will get around to the people component later this week although a few will make the cut into this post.
This collection is from our visit to the Mill of Kintail, mostly from inside the old Tait McKenzie residence.
A section of the parlour with the grand piano: above in colour; below done as an antique photo.
Among other accomplishments, Tait McKenzie was a sculptor and some of his work is displayed upstairs. Our guests, Andrea and Frances, are sitting on a windowsill by one of his medallion-like pieces. A model of the house sits below the sculpture (if that is the right word).
Below: later in the day, JJ wanted to go back for another visit. In this photo, he sits patiently on the stairs while I snap a few photos. We soon climbed those stairs — for the second time that day,
I took the above shot of Andrea outside. I had wandered across the river to try to get a picture, and all I got was her walking away, but I kind of like it.
Finally, a photo similar to the first one but it was an HDR blend of three photos, so it was arrived at differently, even though it looks much the same.
