Duffins Creek

Footbridge over Duffins Creek, Ajax

Sunshine, shadows and reflections - what you can't see (or hear) are the workmen repairing the bridge out of the photo to the left. Monday was a cool but lovely day here.


A few weeks ago, I saw a list of fill-ins in on Rose's blog.  I copied the list and filled in the blanks for the first five here.  Next I filled in groups of five here and here and here and here and a groups of four here .  Here are the last four:



30. If I were a city I’d probably be Toronto.  It’s the city I know best, although I admit I don't know the city itself super well/ However, I'm quite familiar with the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the fourth largest metropolitan area in North America (behind Mexico City, New York City and Los Angeles). The GTA has much to offer!


31. If I were a door I’d be at the entrance of a beautiful garden.

32. If I were a pair of shoes I’d be comfy walking shoes spring, summer and fall, and boots good to -30°C in winter.


33. If I were a poem I’d be about appreciating the natural world around us and how important nature is to our well-being.

What a wonderful bridge, elegant in it's simplicity!

Gayle said...

Can't hear the workmen but in my mind I hear the water. Nice reflection of the bridge too.

If I were a city, I think I would be Vancouver -- at least in Canadian terms. Maybe Victoria although I know it less. TO is too much for me.

Beautiful river and bridge photo! Enjoyed your fill-ins. I've never been to Toronto but should travel there someday. And I had no idea it was that big!

Bridges seem to make good subject matter for photos ... this one is no exception. I also liked your church, door, and window photo in earlier post. Nice work, as always.

glad we can't hear the noise while looking at this walkway bridge. i love nature like you do and i prefer it with only natures sounds.
I could be 4 different cities, all of which i know really well, Savannah, GA, Bradenton and St Peter Fl and the last is the one i would choose Ormond Beach FL...

Fotolosopher said...

It does look like a nice day but where's all the greenery? Maybe the workmen stole it?

Rose said...

I have loved reading your 'If I were" fill-ins. I read the one before this last night and don't think I posted a comment for some reason.

I have sure wished I had thought of some of your answers...

Karen S. said...

That's my idea of a great place to be a door/gate too! Lovely picture.

Montanagirl said...

That's a wonderful bridge! I liked your answers as well.

Kathy said...

This looks to be an iron bridge. I love it! So glad it's being kept up.

Michelle said...

That is a lovely footbridge.

TexWisGirl said...

if i had to be a shoe, i'd be a rain boot, otherwise i'd be barefoot. :)

Dearest EG; Oh, it's a kind of different from our footbridge; very lovely and I like the color.
If I were at time of 5 years old, I wish wish I were mom's high heel p:-)

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*

I like footbridge and this one is wonderful! Your answers are really interesting...

Carola Bartz said...

That is such a nice bridge, I would love to walk it. When you mentioned the workmen repairing the bridge I could actually hear them!

Taken For Granted said...

Fine reflection of that bridge in the water. Glad the bridge is being repaired.

Carletta said...

A very substantial bridge. I like the way you framed the photo. The scene looks so peaceful so I'm ignoring the fact there might be pounding and drilling going on. ;)

carolann said...

Ajax was a stumping ground when I was a kid.

Sylvia K said...

What a great bridge and a marvelous capture as always!! And, as always, I love your answers to the "if I were" questions! Hope you have a great day!!

Andrea Priebe said...

What a great shot of the walking bridge ... I have a small bridge near me that is just like that and I can't pass it without taking a picture of it. Don't know why, it just draws me. I also liked your fill-ins, especially the last one ... oh so true:) Lovely post EGC ...

I totally agree about nature. I would be the door to a garden, too! I like that bridge reflection!

Linda M. Carmean said...

Love your last five! I have five more in my next post tomorrow! The bridge is awesome, too with the reflections.

Ida said...

Great looking footbridge and fencing. I'd enjoy walking over it. - I agree about the "comfy" shoes.

bj said...

Good-looking bridge. :)

cieldequimper said...

Lovely choices EG. Now of course I'd like to stand on the bridge and look at the sand...

Giga said...

Nice cover and interesting looks in the picture. I like your answers to the fun, especially 32. Regards.

I love footbridges. This looks like an expensive one.

I learned something new. I had no idea that Toronto was so darned big. Ignorant me.

Debbie said...

Such a lovely spot to walk and such a pretty, soft reflection from the bridge!!

Randy said...

Nice reflection.

Pauline Woodcock said...

What a lovely bridge. I enjoyed reading your answers. I had to think about the city question. I think I'd choose to be Vancouver, like one of your other followers. It's the nicest city I've ever visited, not that I've seen all that many.

Halcyon said...

Love your outlook! :)

Jen Masssey napierdailyphoto.blogspot.co.nz said...
