Abandoned house in BC

abandoned house--23

I visited British Columbia year and half ago, while driving in the coutryside I walked into this abandoned farm house. I think these are documentary photos. I find it odd in away that such decay transforms into rather interesting photographs, what do you think. Have I been able to capture the decay and odd beauty into these shots?

Monochrome Madness 35 – Lively street view

Ritva's Art - Monochrome Photography

This city shot from Vancouver is so suitable for a monochrome treatment due to the old-time feel of street. I did two variations of it to see which one suited better, the one I chose is my entry  to  the  Monochrome Madness Challenge (MM35) . Which one would you have chosen?

Please visit the MM link,  you will inspired I always am.

It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting.

The Bald Eagle is an opportunistic feeder which subsists mainly on fish, which it swoops down and snatches from the water with its talons. It builds the largest nest of any North American bird and the largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species,  Sexual maturity is attained at the age of four to five years.

Bald Eagles are not actually bald; the name derives from an older meaning of “white-headed”. The adult is mainly brown with a white head and tail. The sexes are identical in plumage, but females are larger than males. The beak is large and hooked. The plumage of the immature is brown.

I took these pictures of the under five-year old Bald Eagle in B.C Canada. It was sitting on an electricity pole near the sea. Usually It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting, this time also…
