I'm finishing up shots from Guelph today, and a reminder that tomorrow is a new City Daily Photo Theme Day dealing with the theme Squares. Also, for those of you in North America (I'm not sure if the tradition extends elsewhere in the world, but that's possible), the first Saturday in May at comic book shops is Free Comic Book Day. If you've got a shop in your area, it might be a good photo opportunity this weekend, particularly if people turn up in costume.
Riverside Park stretches along a portion of both sides of the Speed River as it flows through the city. This windmill can be found at the south end of the park, close to the river's edge.
It stands out rather nicely against that sky.
Much of the Speed River in town stays open through the winter, running swiftly enough that ice doesn't form. Ducks and Canada Geese take advantage of the open water.
This footbridge is further along in the park, offering a link over to the west side.
Even in winter, it gets a good deal of pedestrian traffic.
A glance back downstream gives us this view of the river. Sure, it looks cold, but this was in the dead of winter, and after all, cold's a good thing. I will have to photograph this river in warm weather.
