In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Boundaries.”
This week the Daily Post invited us to explore limits, borders, and dividers–real or otherwise constructed. I wanted to post before the end of the weekend and my one window of opportunity was Friday evening. Already, after grocery shopping, sunset was fast approaching. To take photos, I would have to challenge a looming boundary: the end of daylight. I drove over to a nearby park, beside Lake Ontario, and found a physical boundary:
At the edge of the parking lot was a sign setting out park rules. Park signs are often amusing, and this one was no exception, despite the importance of the message:
As I stepped into the park, I saw the tree–part was green and the other half was orange. I had come upon the border between summer and fall:
Nearby, three Canada geese were hanging out. I am not afraid of geese, but I have heard they can be agressive if threatened. I approached slowly so as to not annoy my subjects, carefully testing their boundaries. It looks like they were ignoring me:
My final shots were taken at 6:45 PM–already the sun was low on the horizon–sadly the long days of summer are over:
I hope you enjoyed this small excursion. For more photo explorations of boundaries please visit The Daily Post.
