PhotoHunter: Triangle

This week’s PhotoHunter theme is “Triangle”…

The Andrewsville Road Bridge at Nicholson’s Locks in the Rideau Canal. A makeshift memorial to two people drowned two weeks before, one, an off-duty Navy rescue person, trying to rescue a drowning teen. A reminder that even the most quiet river can have hidden dangers.


The next image is one of a series which I have tentatively titled “The Portfolio“. They “recreate” the portfolio of a fictional woman photographer of the mid-19th century, as it would have been rediscovered long after her death. Since it is a work in progress, many of these are experiments.

    Oh, what a terrible tragedy on the bridge. Bridges always conjure up such a peaceful image, but can have such terrible endings… Your portfolio is certainly intriguing!

    This is a wonderful set of images, so imaginative and artistic. I love the “raw negative” quality of them. Oh, and there are triangles. I would happily have looked at these without the tie-in to the theme.

    Your Portfolio looks very intriguing, an interesting concept.
    That first shot has a look of destruction to it that is most likely not evident in the original.

    In New Zealand people put flowers where people die.

      There are all sorts of thinks put up, here. Sometimes stuffed toys, candles, ribbons… flowers – both plastic and real — crosses…..

    Wow… beautiful! 🙂 I love the first one as it gave me a bit of risk taking feeling. 😛
