The Changing Seasons 2016—August

It’s the end of August, which means, it’s time for my 8th installment of Cardinal Guzman’s monthly photo challenge, The Changing Seasons 2016.

I’ve been spending most of my free time this month in the garden, so it only makes sense to include a few garden shots.

Construction of the new swing bridge across the St. Peter’s Canal is winding down for this year. I haven’t posted any photos of the progress since June, so I went out yesterday to get a few more shots of it.

While I was on the on the canal bridge, I spotted a watercraft moving toward me, so, of course, I had to shoot it.

From the bridge, I made my way into Battery Provincial Park. It was a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, yet, I had the entire park to myself. So weird!

After leaving the park, I wandered up Denys Street toward the museum. Just like the park, nobody was there!

When I left the museum, I made my way to the main street to shoot a couple of fire hydrants that I was missing from my collection.

The rest of the photos were taken on my route home.

    • Years ago, all the fire hydrants in the village were painted as fun characters. They are gradually being replaced with new (boring red) ones, so I’m trying to get photos of all the old ones that are left. I’ve photographed six, and I’m aware of two more. The other two are in an area with high traffic, high speeds, and no sidewalks. I can walk to them, but it won’t be a pleasant walk.

  1. So many fun ones in here. I’m sure I’m like everyone else and love the fire hydrants! But I also love the guy “diving” from the rock/cliff, the huge metal petals, and the peas. Looks like you had a beautiful day for a walk around town.

    • It was a beautiful day for a walk.

      I’m not even sure why they have that no hiking sign there. If anyone is stupid enough to walk there, they deserve to take a nosedive off the cliff!

      “Metal Petals” is a local business. They sell those sculptures at farmer’s markets and at local shops. Their stuff is pretty nifty!

      As for the peas… I pulled all the plants out of the ground this week and planted a second crop. 😀

  2. I love the fire hydrants! How fun! Lovely photos (as usual). It looks like it’s starting to be more fall-like where you are (you are in Canada if I recall, right?). It’s still hot and humid as ever in Washington, DC, where I recently moved to. We are rolling out the fall drink specials at the coffee shop I work at in the next few days and I’m not ready for that, yet! It still feels like summer to me!


    • Thanks! I was told about another “hidden” fire hydrant this month. I hope to get out to photograph it before the end of September, for this month’s Changing Seasons. It’s one that I’m sure will make everyone smile. 😀
