Last year I started to experience problems with the external hard drive I used for storage of all my photos.
I was afraid of losing all these files, including hundreds of old photos that had been painstakingly scanned and saved, so I began the tortuous process of moving my photo library in Lightroom to a new external drive.
I’m sure there is a relatively easy, straight-forward way to do this transfer, but I seem to have opted for one that is long and cumbersome – made more complicated by the flakiness of the source drive.
This is really just a long way of saying I’ve been rediscovering photos I’ve taken over the past several years – including these two taken last winter.
This was found on a secluded section of waterfront at Scarborough Bluffs in the east end of Toronto.
When I first eyed it, I immediately thought of a dinosaur, but a nearby plaque explained otherwise.
This ‘monument’ – not sure what else to call it – is called Passage.
To quote from the plaque, it “links together the idea of a significant passage through life, the elegant passage of the fish through the water that shapes this site, and the silent passage of the canoe, symbol of the exploration of our land“.
It was such an unusual find during a cold winter hike – quite frankly, I don’t even know where exactly Helen and I found it that day.
… but an unexpected find, in an unlikely place, is something I really like.
