This was a very special day, as the afternoon was spent with 3 lovely & wonderful fellow Bubbler ladies: Pat Gubbins who was already a dear friend, and had the delightful pleasure of meeting Jules 572 and Robin Webster both of the Kitchener/Waterloo ON area. Pat and I met Julie and Robin at Doon Heritage Crossroads in the Kitchener area in CANADA.

Doon Heritage Crossroads is a pioneer village of the early 1900s. This general store is only one of the quaint structures comprising of the village. Being a windy day, I decided to illustrate that with a slow shutter speed to indicate leaf movement. My Nikon D80 and 70-300mm ED Nikkor lens were very happy to capture this setting. Minor Topaz simplifying was done to provide an artistic flavour, as well as a pinch of diffusing.

    Fabulous capture and how fantastic meeting up with fellow Bubblers! What a great idea!!

  • Thanks a bunch for the kind compliments and fave. Very grateful. Yes it was great meeting up with Julie and Robin. We had hoped to meet up again, but schedules and weather nixed those plans. Hope something can be arranged soon. As I already knew Pat, she and I get out regularly. Regards, Ron

    i like the floating leafs in motion !

  • Thanks for your compliment. That’s pretty well what I was hoping for, given the “stiff breeze”.
