SundayStills – framed

Toronto 011 The Tall Ships arrived in Toronto this week and I thought what a perfect subject for framing – all those ropes and masts! The top one is a a canoe between seen through the rigging on the Bounty.

Below is the Niagara in the foreground with the Bounty in the centre. And, I cannot remember which the other two ships are, possibly the Unicorn and Roald Amundson?

  16. The last one on the left, good framing by the trees.

    I liked your header, is it a poppy? It inspired to take my photos because I just adore the poppy bud.
