About Town

I am trying to contribute to a community project, so I've been taking a few photos around town. While I have some similar ones somewhere on my hard drive, I though I would begin anew.

The view from our main street bridge (called Bridge Street) looking downriver, more or less east toward the former railway bridge.

Then it was off to the railway bridge to look back at the main bridge. There is now a fence because the trains no longer run and the old bridge is in the process of becoming part of a recreational trail running through town for now and eventually connecting with other communities.

And we need a picture of the local high school for this project.

This final image was not part of the shoot but taken a day later. I had noticed a loosestrife plant earlier in the day, so I returned with the camera in the evening to get the flower in the foreground and townhall in the background. It was a good idea, but the light wasn't the best, the wind was stirring the water, and there was a machine parked by the building. But I took the shot anyway because what's a guy to do? I may return on another evening, but I imagine that the machine will still be there for awhile.

It is sometimes easier to start anew rather than digging through the hard drive :-)
It looks like a nice place to live.

Yep, what's a guy to do?!
I love these non-creative names, Bridge St., but prefer them to some old dead white dude colonial settler!

That first photo looks like a painting! Absolutely gorgeous!

ahah! The dreaded purple loosestrife! Isn't it supposed to be a noxious weed?
