The Birds, Bees & Wakefield Covered Bridge

This was my second attempt at trying to photograph a hummingbird, and with a few tricks I learned, the results improved. However, I still have a long way to go … need to learn some more tricks of the trade.

On the way back home, I decided to take a look at the covered bridge and Gatineau River just outside the town of Wakefield, Québec.

Abandoned Barn – Lochiel Township, North Glengarry

Several weeks ago on my way east on highway #417, I noticed what looked like a large abandoned barn just east of the highway #34 exit.

Someone appears to be recovering some of the better wood from the barn. Next to the barn is what looks like a horse stable.

Here are some of the photos that I took while walking around the barn.

No, not the eating kind but instead the Big Apple, New York City.

I had an opportunity to play tourist in New York City over the Christmas holidays and, naturally, I took many photos. I was four years old the last time I was in New York City and that was a while ago, so things have changed a wee bit since then. As I was walking around, primarily on the island of Manhattan, I would ask myself the question, “What is New York City to me?”

I believe the best way to answer that question is through some of the photos I took while I was there being a tourist …
