“Happy Canada 150”

This image is a bit of an oddity for me. I’m usually sharing images of plants, wildlife, landscapes or some of my abstract impressions. Today, I’m sharing a snapshot of a moment in my life. You see, today Canada celebrates 150 years as a nation. A nation I am so proud to call home. A nation where I can travel freely, enjoy incredibly diverse environments. A nation where, quite frankly, I can simply enjoy life, with friends and family. Times where we share our days, our experiences, often over a cool beverage at the end of the day.

This image was an impromptu iPhone composition, made while sharing a beer with my neighbours. The ‘stubby’ beer bottle disappeared from Canadian breweries in the early eighties, in favour of a ‘better’ design. The long necked bottle, yet there is a nostalgia, Canadiana to the stubby.

In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, one of the breweries, Molsons, which makes Canadian Lager, brought the stubby back for a brief time. So, it was a great opportunity to capture this memory. The stubby bottle of Canadian, with a muskoka chair and my neighbourhood in the background as an appropriate starting point to the upcoming celebrations. Happy 150 Canada.

Thursday Doors – December 15, 2016

“Neighbours” - Saint John, New Brunswick

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

Back to Saint John, New Brunswick once more and it’s variety of lovely doors. This one is title “Neighbours”, for fairly obvious reasons. I found it very interesting how two adjacent doorways could look so different, based on the homeowner’s decorating style. It was also interesting just how much the light changed the colour of the stonework from warm to cool.
