This is a shot I took in Paris last year. Paris Ontario Canada that is! The sun had gone down and I set up the tripod on the bridge to catch the lights reflecting in the river.
This is a 3 exposure HDR processed with Photomatix then brought into Photoshop and filtered with Topaz adjust and the Paint filter in CS6.
The Nith River runs into the Grand River in Paris Ontario. This shot of the Nith is just a short walk from downtown Paris. It was a great spot to go for a hike.

Something a little different today. This is a shot of the railway bridge in Paris Ontario. It is a great structure and I can just imagine the hours spent by engineers working out every detail of the construction. I bet it was with great satisfaction and relief the first time the train passed over it. I wonder how the engineer operating the train felt the first time passing over the new bridge?

Another shot from our Paris Ontario photo walk. This is a most unusual church. Not sure if it is still being used as a church any more. I think there was work being done to the roof and the sign outside had nothing on it. Maybe being made into apartments or something.

After taking pictures of the Soul Tree we went down to the dam on the Grand River. It is a very interesting spot. I’ve never seen a dam built with a S curve before. Construction started in 1918. It was built for Penmans Limited clothing company and was used to provide waterpower in order to operate the company’s mills in the town. Follow this link http://images.ourontario.ca/brant/72637/data to see a picture of it under construction.
Yesterday a group of us went on a photo walk in Paris Ontario. A friend suggested we shot this tree just outside of Paris that is filled with shoes.
I have no idea what the significance of the shoes is but it gives the tree lots of soul!
