Camera Girl

Andy | Sunday, September 30, 2012 | | Best Blogger Tips

I was photographing the coastline when this young lady came into view. I always get a feeling of uneasiness when I see someone walking on terrain like this while wearing flip flops on their feet. I've seen people
receive serious injury by not wearing the proper footwear.

Ghost Town - School Section #17

Andy | Saturday, September 29, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

A brick schoolhouse in the Altona Ghost Town, built in the 1850's, fell victim to fire in 1909. The school that stands today in Altona is therefore of a much later period by nearly fifty years. In June 1909, a call for tenders was advertised for the erection of a new brick schoolhouse for Altona. The building was completed and opened in 1911. For the next fifty-five years the ‘new’ school served the community. Renovations to the basement were made in the early 1960's to accommodate a second school room, and a second teacher was hired. With the advent of the regional school boards, however, the school was closed in 1966 and the students were bused away from Altona. I'm Linking to Weekly Top Shot.

This is a continuation of yesterday's posting. I decided to explorer the rest of the property and here's a few items I discovered. What's left of the farm house is located about 300 feet from the barn.


These are not wagon wheels. They are large size spools use for holding cable.


The remains of a boat. I have plans to return soon. I want to see if there are any more interesting items to be found.

It wasn't fun pushing through the wet goldenrod but it was worth it to get closer for this shot.


This last photos shows the side with the main doors. This barn is abandoned and the land is slated for a housing subdivision.

Resident Campaign Protects Home

Andy | Tuesday, September 11, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

A much-loved West Shore home will remain safe from developers after council voted to initiate a heritage designation for the building. Many residents spoke out about their love for the Georgian-style cottage at 560 Park Cres. during a four-hour discussion at a council meeting on April 16, where they presented more than 1,000 signatures in support of giving the home heritage designation, which would protect it from demolition. The home, built in the 1850's, is one of the last vestiges of an early Scottish settlement surrounding the hamlet of Dunbarton.

It's not unusually when on hiking trails to find objects of clothing hanging on a branch. It's a courtesy that people have when they find lost articles of clothing. It also happens on the streets where I have seen hats, jackets or gloves left in an easy place for people to spot.

On the 200 th anniversary of the War Of 1812 it's been a year of reenactments and displays in Canada and the United States.. I came across this gentleman on the Canadian side of Lake Erie. The weapon he is holding is a blunderbuss. It could be considered an early version of the shotgun.
