I found myself travelling through a stretch of the city that I was not all that familiar with. I don't know if it was the brilliant sunshine, or the warm 21C! or the good lunch and interesting visit with my friend that made me happily more aware of my surroundings, but I found a multitude of photo ops as I drove. I was under a bit of a time restraint and the sun was perhaps a little too intense for many shots, so I made a note of specific places to come back to.
I continued on towards home with a brief stopover at the marina where I take all my pictures of the swans and ducks (with the much appreciated bridge from the Sunday post). But, between last Sunday and today, most of the swans had taken off - about 150 had already gone, leaving only 40 in the bay. I counted less than a dozen ducks, though there could have been a few more hiding or drifting. It is always sad when the swans migrate from this winter haven, though a few do remain behind all year.
So I need a new focus for my photo walks.
And I have decided to take you on a walking tour.
I drove through several different areas today, all well worth a visit. Now, they are not all 'picturesque', but definitely photo worthy.
Bearing in mind that, besides perhaps one person, none of you will have any idea what each area will elicit, I'll let you pick one at random for our inaugural tour of Hamilton.
So, where would you like me to start?
- 'Barton Village'
- Dundurn Park
- Pier 4
