This is the old Stone Arch Bridge that crosses Bowman Creek just outside Blair Ontario. It is visible from Blair Rd. just before Fountain Street. I have read that it was probably built in the mid 1800’s for a rail line servicing the mills in the area.
It is a beautiful hidden gem and hopefully it will receive some sort of maintenance so that it doesn’t succumb to the forces of nature.
Went kayaking on the Grand River in Cambridge today and was rewarded with this beautiful Heron strolling along the river bank.
A shot from this past weekend in Wiarton overlooking Colpoy’s Bay.
On Sunday I went for a bike ride down the trail along the Conestogo River south of St. Jacobs and came across this guy standing watch on the other side of the river. They are usually pretty skittish and fly away at the first sight of a human but he was content to stay put while I took his portrait.
The Bandstand in Gore Park, Elmira Ont. was originally built in 1912 by A.M. Bowman.
It replaced the original band shell that was built in the late 1800’s
Woolwich Community Lion’s Club supported the latest restoration of this Woolwich Township Heritage building in 2012. More historical information can be found in this article http://observerxtra.com/2/featured/and-the-band-played-on/
I took this photo a few years ago and republish it now with some PhotoArtistry added.
July 1st Canadian’s are celebrating Canada’s 150 years of Confederation. Fireworks are always part of the celebrations so I made my way down to Columbia Lake in Waterloo Ont. for the big show. For 20 minutes the sky was alive with the explosions, pops and sizzles. Here are a few shots I captured.
The barns in Alberta are quite different than here in Ontario. They are generally smaller and the boards run horizontal as opposed to vertically here in Ontario.
We found this abandoned barn east of Edmonton. With the sun shining on it’s face and the windmill in the background I could just imagine a time when a farm family called this property home.
