Writing with Light

Light in the City

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and that all you Dad’s had a wonderful Father’s Day.

Back to Port Credit today…the original lighthouse, that sat a the mouth of the Credit River in Port Credit, Mississauga was in service from 1882 to 1918. In 1936 the lighthouse was destroyed by fire. In 1991 a replica of the lighthouse was built by the Lions Club of Credit Valley. The structure itself sits atop a sewage pumping station and house a tourist bureau in its base.

    Shame the original burnt. As nice as this image is, the lighthouse itself does appear to be artificial and built for viewing rather than working. Beauty pic Edith.

    I like the painting. It fooled me at first, to be honest 😉

  4. Looks like a painting, wait part of it is indeed a painting 🙂

    p.s: noticed that ur shots at the blog were really soft (that ur hosting on wordpress) , but the ones at the smugsite were real sharp. Did u know that u can use dimension in the smug URL instead of L,M etc to get the exact size … It would be much more easier to maintain and sharper too !

    • Thanks Sathya. Thanks for the observation. I’ve been frustrated with the softness when viewing on WordPress as well but wasn’t sure how to fix that. I’ll email you as I have some more questions. Thanks.

  10. Very interesting shot, Edith. Fooled me at first since I’m viewing on a small BB tablet. Really like your sky treatment.

  11. I love a good lighthouse shot, and this one doesn’t disappoint. Nice job Edith.

  12. Such a clever piece of painting around the base. Intriguing structure and the soft red paintwork comes across really well. Nice find, Edith
