This is Engine 6593 which happily pulls passenger cars full of tourists and train enthusiasts between Waterloo, St. Jacobs and Elmira.
I took this shot at the train yard in St. Jacobs. Built in 1957, it has been lovingly restored by the members of the Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society (SOLRS).

What was once Modern Machinery now sits as an ornament at the end of a farm lane in the shadow of a modern windmill.
The summer winds blow through the wheat fields making them look like flowing rivers. That is the feeling I was going for in creating this work.
Chickadees are friendly little birds that will eat out of your hand once they get used to you. This one posed for me at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hamilton Ontario.
