These old HSR soldiers provided service in my hometown of Hamilton ON for years; the middle one the longest, in the 1940s, but given their dilapidated state at this Radial Museum north of Burlington ON CANADA, they face an uncertain future. The trio was captured with my Nikon D50 and 18-55mm DX lens. Burlington flanks Hamilton to the east, west and north.

  • Thank you kindly Carmen for your generous compliment. This was converted to a B&W I-R, and then modified the tones til I got the result I hoped for. May you and Danny have a wonderful Easter. Hugz, Ron

    Poor old icons – but you’ve memorialized them beautifully.

  • Thanks again Sheila. I figured B&W would be an appropriate venue for this image. All the best, Ron
