Nik and I went out last weekend, just driving around town. I had decided at the beginning of the drive, that we would check out this park that we had stumbled across, that was very hard to access with my little car in the winter – apparently winter maintenance was not done on the parking lot or driveway of this particular location. Now that the weather here is beautiful, I thought it was high time we check it out. And I fell in love. And I’ve only seen maybe 10% of it.
I don’t even know the name of it, just know how to get there from my place. It seems to be an old quarry that they’ve allowed to naturalize, and there’s a great swampy area with a boardwalk that runs through it. Blackbirds, Canadian Geese, frogs, water snakes, fish – all these creatures living in one area peacefully trying to simply survive. And what a gorgeous spot to do that as well! I’ll be going there numerous times, to see what I can photograph. Here are a few photos from that day. There’s also a photo tucked in from the waterfront park here in town, with Nik checking out those stationary binoculars you can pay to use.
You’ll see another post soon about my first photo shoot, and some of those photos are taken at my new favourite spot. Well… I guess this is kinda my first photoshoot, since Nik seems to have been my model that night!
