This was my second visit to Exporail, and I’m still in love with this place. My initial visit was on August 1, 2015, almost a year ago. For my previous visit please see Exporail – Awaken Your Inner Child.
Located in Smith Falls, Ontario, the Eastern Ontario Train Museum is a small and informal museum with its own track system. The people who volunteer there are friendly and know their stuff about trains. In addition to some great exhibits inside the train station, you can walk through and climb on many of the train cars. It is worth a visit if you are in the area. And when you are there, say hello to Jack, their newest volunteer. He is a sweetheart!
Night Photos near the Wellington Street Bridge (March 30, 2016)
Well, I’m a bit behind on processing these photos! This past March I headed out to the Ottawa downtown area after dark to try my hand at some night photography. I spent some time under the Wellington Street bridge that crosses the canal, and I became fascinated with the lighting and shadows. I also love the power of the message behind the War Memorial.
“The Famous Five” Statue on Parliament Hill – “Women Are Persons” (June 9, 2016)
I am taking a summer course at SPAO on the history of photography, and as part of the course we looked at “iconic” photography. As an assignment, we were asked to select an Ottawa icon. This was a challenge, as there are so many things and places in Ottawa that are iconic to me. I finally decided on “The Famous Five” statue on Parliament Hill. For me, this represents many of my beliefs.
