From a Box Brownie, to the latest digital gear, it is all just tools, or a means of stating who we are, at various points in time. The sophistication of our images has more to do with our personal growth, than the equipment that we acquire along the way.

No Swimming? No Kidding!
Quite a while has passed since I posted anything on this site. Preparing for the Christmas Holidays, and the business end of the snowblower, has kept me fairly busy. However, this afternoon, I decided that I would find something out there for my blog. I visited the Government Dock, or King's Landing, as it has been renamed, and found this sign "No Swimming." It reminded me that in about 3 weeks from now, on New Year's Day, there would be those brave or insane folks, depending on your point of view, who would cut a hole in the ice on Lake Nipissing, and dive into the frigid waters. Those hardy souls are members of The Polar Bear Club, and I cannot foresee becoming a member myself anytime soon. Besides, I can't swim........Yeah, Right...Brrrrr! Hypothermia anyone? The slipping ice formation looks somewhat like a futuristic aircraft, blasting off for warmer climes. Winter is here!
