Walk in the park

 I had the amazing pleasure of having my 8 year old nephew come to visit this past weekend. It has been way too long since I sat on the floor and built a pirate ship out of Lego for several hours. We managed to squeeze a bunch of cool stuff in over the course of the weekend, including a visit to the Children’s Museum, making sundaes, and a visit to Waterloo Park, complete with the mini-zoo. I took a few photos while we were there, but I felt like I missed something. Rather than divert my attentions from my wife and nephew, I chose to come back on Sunday evening by myself. What a great opportunity to see Waterloo Park in a different light, both literally (it was now sunset), and figuratively. The thing I love about taking photos is that I have started to slow down and make the time to consider every little thing along the way; to try and see things in a different light and to notice a great many things that I might previously have never seen. This is one of my favourites from that day. The building is the old Erb Grist Mill  which was built in 1816 (well, actually the building is a replica, but there was a grist mill there from 1816-1927). I’ll try and post a few more from that day, but for now, enjoy!
