My whereabouts is my neighbourhood as it transitions from autumn to winter. Blue skies and warm temperatures are appearing less frequently and are being replaced with rain and cooler temperatures. We’re enjoying the final days of autumn flowers. Gardens are being put to bed as the leaves begin to fall and blanket the roads with reds and yellows.
My photo walk takes place on Sunday. Friday and Saturday were exceptionally busy and I didn’t get out for my long walk. Today I made sure to get out before noon.
I left my house and walked toward the park that edges onto the lake.
I continued along Lakeshore Drive and turned onto 4th St. which ends in a dead end but the property on the east side is abandoned so I walked toward the lake again.
I noticed that a large flock of swans were swimming together at the foot of Prince of Wales Park so I continued east.
After taking a dozen or more photos I decided to continue on my walk along the shores of Lake Ontario before the swans decided they had enough of this intruder with her iPhone camera. You can see from one of the following photos that there’s still a little bit of ice hanging onto the shoreline.
As I left the park I continued through the neighbourhood until I reached a tiny parkette on Sand Beach Road.
I then turned north and walked towards the busy street of Lakeshore Blvd. and headed home.
The task is to post at least one photo that depicts the concept of ‘dreamy’. For me, right now in the middle of winter here in Toronto, dreamy images are ones of warm waters, sandy beaches and sunshine. Let me take you back to summers at the cottage.
