Honorable Mention – Doors Open Ontario

Each summer my wife and I visit various locations made open to the public by Doors Open Ontario. As stated on their web site, “Every year, Doors Open Ontario attracts large crowds across Ontario. From April to October, residents and visitors are invited to discover first-hand Ontario’s hidden heritage treasures, some of which have never been open to the public.” It is a great opportunity to take pictures of places you may not otherwise get access to.

Every year they have a photo contest you can enter by simply uploading your photos to their Flickr account. This year I am honoured to have received honourable mention in the objects category  for two photos I took at the Schnurr General Store in Linwood. The bike and the skates are two of the numerous objects the general store has on display representing it’s rich history in the town of Linwood.
