Everything New is Old Again

Sifton Bog - London, Ontario - NorthernShy 2014

Drove over to the Sifton Bog for a wee hike on the weekend since it was such a beautiful day.  Strikes me that I must drive, but thankful that there is a place, right in the city actually, where you can feel like you are away from the city.  Such a contrast to back home, where you could walk out the door and be steps from the wilderness. Remembering now, my Mom walking to work and coming face-to-face with a black bear that rose up on hind legs, perhaps just as startled as the woman in front of him, frozen in her tracks. I’ve edited my photos of that day in the Sifton Bog, making the bright, colourfull fall photos look aged, and that pleases me somehow.  A nod, perhaps, to those days gone by of wilderness & bears & memories & home.

Fanshawe Lake - London, Ontario - NorthernShy 2014

Reflecting today on the passage of time. Another Fall. Another season change. That old, broken tree trunk down by the lake is catching my attention today. The leaves are starting to change.  Screaming for attention. But that old, broken tree trunk, it speaks to me today. Quietly. And it is beautiful.
