2010 - Day 296. Oct. 23, 2010.
What a glorious afternoon I had being shown the beautiful sights of Windsor, Ontario by my Flickr buddy, windsordi ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/windsordi/ ) ! It's always such a treat to meet an online colleague face-to-face! Di, I can't thank you enough for the time you so generously shared to show me around.
Although I took dozens and dozens of shots that afternoon, I kept being drawn back to this one. Collingwood, where I live, was once a shipbuilding town, an industrial hub for the area. Now at the heart of an ever-growing tourist centre, we've lost most of our industrial base. I like this shot of the 'working' river.
I bumped up the blacks to emphasize the vertical shapes. I like the way the old pier pilings on the Canadian side of the river are echoed by the industrial shapes on the American side.
