Photo Dump

“One doesn't stop seeing. One doesn't stop framing. It doesn't turn off and turn on. It's on all the time.”
- Annie Leibovitz -

No matter where I am, I always find myself framing something. First with my eyes. And then with my camera. There is so much to see in this world. So much to enjoy. And so much to capture. Just look around.

Here is this week’s round of photos...

And justice for all...
The Frontenac County Court House was constructed between 1855 and 1858.

Coming soon to a garden near you.

Looking forward to photographing people having fun in the water.

A rusty old wagon wheel.

Is there anything more graceful than a swan?

Along a country road.

An adorable ball of fluff.

Dark windows on an old building in Montreal.

Lots of pretty colours in the country.

An Irish pub in downtown Kingston situated in one of the oldest buildings in the area.

Have a lovely Tuesday, everyone!

  4. I'd love to pet that beautiful swan's neck but it would probably bite my fingers off.

  7. I did a double-take when I saw the courthouse, Martha... I had to recheck my photos to verify that it was, indeed, the Kingston courthouse I photographed while walking with my son in November 2011. He was doing his Master's at Queens that fall. We were very much offline and not watching TV the ten days I was visiting, so I only realized when I returned home that the infamous Shafir "honour killing" trial was ongoing at the time I took photographs. So I have mixed feelings when I look at my photos from that visit :(

    1. Yes, that was going on at that time. Such a horrible tragedy. It was all over the news during that period.

    1. I love visiting where those swans hang out. They are so beautiful. I approach them carefully, get as close as they will allow me, and sit quietly beside them to take photographs. It is always such a joy!
