Yesterday I left off with taking leave of the Canal skateway to come into Lansdowne Park to get some shots. This is a view of the Aberdeen Pavilion from the east. The building dates to the late 19th century as an exhibition hall. In the age of Covid, it is only being used at the moment for the weekly farmers market.
Here we have it from the southeast.
Heading on my way to rejoin the Canal, I paused to photograph the stadium. The two stand sections are quite different; the south stands at left is newer, dating to 2014. Under normal times a football team and a soccer team play on the field. We'll see what happens as the year goes along.
There's a fair sized ridge along this side that's good for tobogganing. A light sculpture stands at the top of the ridge.
I returned to the Canal. This view looked back to where I had been.
And this looked to where I was going. The curve in the Canal completes itself up ahead, turning directly west as the skateway heads towards Dow's Lake.
Across from the stairs I took down from Lansdowne is an island in this part of the Canal. I noticed branches of one of the trees tilted downward and partially covered in snow.
I carried on. This shot at Lansdowne includes the pavilion among the trees.
The south stands is visible here. A large wooden screen curves around its back.
And here's what's ahead of us: the Bank Street Bridge. Most of the time when it's in the blog, it's because I'm photographing from on top of that bridge, as opposed to down here.
