Walking On S___/ Sepia Scenes


For decoration or for actual use, these snowshoes are for sale at an antiques and collectible shop in Port Perry, Ontario.

Not enough snow for snowshoes in East Gwillimbury yet! (We did receive a dusting yesterday but it's now only a memory.)

I saw on the news a few minutes ago that it's snowing in Dallas, Texas! I guess it won't be long before East Gwillimbury gets some that will stick around. This is a wonderful sepia picture.

I love this shot. My dad worked outside as a game manager. We had plenty of these laying around the yard and hanging in the barn. Makes me a bit homesick for the guy.

No snow in our neck of the woods yet either. We used that style snow shoe for years but we upgraded recently. I loved those old shoes. And they make a great composition, especially in sepia.

That is such a nice sepia. Beautiful shot and processing.

LOL! yes, snow is a four letter word.
The shoes are fantastic.

Jacob said...

So far so lucky with a dusting of snow. Put off buying these for awhile. Do you think they would really work?

Nice sepia like always!

Kerri said...

Neat snow shoes...and glad you only got a dusting :)

Jenn Jilks said...

Nice work! And I do love Port Perry.

Can't wait to have the snow replacing the cold rain...
God bless you!

I just love it when winter starts coming around so I see all the cool winter stuff that has no place in my world. Love the snowshoes.

Can't wait to see photos of snow in your your area soon!

Ralph said...

These snowshoes seem to fit the US view 'the Great White North'. Happily four-wheel drive exists today, so the snow shoes are a bit more optional these days. However, with flurries in Ontario, one cannot be too prepared...

Cool antique picture. Have you ever tried to actually walk in similar snowshoes?? I have. My dad bought snowshoes to walk in his garden when the snow lay 2 meter high. Worst thing I've ever had on my feet. So my dad thought.

I wonder if those snow shoes have traveled a lot of kilometers over the snow? We don't have any snow here yet either!

Becky and Gary said...

We got the same amount of snow as you did. Every day without will get us that much closer to Spring! I prefer to hang the snowshoes for decoration. I think they are so cool.

That first picture is awesome! It almost looks like a painting.

Seems like winter is late arriving in many places this year.

At first, I thought you were talking about another "S" word, EG... Guess my mind is in the gutter this morning. ha

No snow yet, huh????? Gosh--if you don't get snow there, then I know we'll NEVER get any. ha

Cute sepia shot though...
Hugs,
Betsy
