I love blending urban decay with life. This is a different perspective on the same subject as an earlier post.

Years Gone By
Several layers of paint over the years add to the intrigue of this image. I have been searching for a long time for a door like this, with the old style handle, unique rust patterns, cracked and peeling paint. The search is fun, but the find is emotional.

This was a shot from a trip to a local junk yard.
Shapes and patterns can be found everywhere in a junk yard. I love the lines and circles in this image working together with the yellows, reds and purples.

Great feel ...
 
Meditation... by www.chrisbird.com

It was a strange night on the island of Koh Chang ,Thailand.
I hadn't been taking photos long and was really struggling to set the camera up and capture this spectacle..
I have seen hundreds over the years but this was like nothing else. 
Here I was on this small island in the middle of the Thai gulf with my tripod sinking in the sand getting camera shake and over exposing the images.
Pang had just bought me a beer but I couldn't relax as alI I wanted to do was capture this scene before the lights went out.
I took a hundred shots that night but due to setting up the camera incorrectly I had to bin 99 of them .
Luckily I shoot RAW so I kind of salvaged this as a reminder of the best sunset ever ..
Hope to see you again.

Tree Swallows
Tree swallows are quick, high energy birds. Each time around the pond they would regroup at the same spot making it easier to compose your shot, and click the shutter at the right time.

Winter exploration of a junk yard. A long forgotten treasure. I can't help but to think that someone loved this car at one time. Maybe someone's first car?

Keeping with the water fowl theme.
This adult male bufflehead kept it's distance from me no matter where I tried to position myself for a good shot. After what seemed like an hour, I managed to capture him against a nice coloured background reflecting in the water.

Male Mallard Duck.
Humber Bay Park (East), Toronto, ON
This male was very cooperative as I photographed him. It was as though he knew what I was after. Thanks M. Duck!

My recent trip to Algonquin Provincial Park this Easter weekend was terrific. While shooting the wind swept pines at Lake of Two Rivers, I spotted two female snow buntings along the rocky shoreline. Check that off my list!
