One of the lovely old train stations Bill and I had the pleasure of spending a little time visit last year. I love the old clock, it and the architecture of the building are reminiscent of another period of time. Built in 1898, we can only image what it would have been like sitting waiting for the next train during the days of the old steam engine!

Just a little side note, this image catalogued with a stock agency. Stock photography is not a major source of income, but it does allow me to make available some of the many travel images in my personal catalogue for publication. It is always nice to hear that one is being utilized. That joyous “I’ve been picked” feeling, and a few extra pennies in my pocket for coffee! A nice way to start the day.

I hope yours starts with some good news.

I have been working through my library of images, processing them and getting them ready for the stock agency. The work has me going back through some holiday pictures of warm weather holiday places. It is cold outside, not the -20C that it might be in Ottawa! but it is winter in Canada, and since I am not able to get away for a warm weather holiday at this time this seems like a good place to be, tucked away in my cozy office/studio looking at holiday pictures!
I love the delicate feathery stems that reach out from the center of the tree providing a cool green all natural umbrella.
