Watching The World Go By


I took the following series of photos this past September while standing by the lifeguard 
building at Lawrencetown Beach.

  1. The world does indeed go by as we watch, and when it gets all too busy, we want the world to stop!!! Lovely views from the doorway, specially the car with a surfboard on top, the driver will want many more days like that. full of sunshine and water waiting. Cheers from Jean

    1. Actually the sun is out today and the temperature is around 3C. I am sure there are surfers (in wet suits) down at the beach as they are most everyday the conditions are right.
      Enjoy your weekend Jean.

  2. Watching the world and people go by is one of my favorite past times.

    Whatever you're 'watching' I hope you enjoy your day, Jim!

    1. Pat, that was what caught my eye at first. Almost like looking at a screen of a TV.

  4. What a fun idea for a photo series. I would like to try this sometime. And, Jim, everything looks so much neater and cleaner in Canada, even the cars.

    1. That is probably due to less population here, Inger. We have 30+ million compared to 300+ million! And Canada is larger in size too. More space to move around.

      It was fun doing this and I could have spent all afternoon there.

  5. I love the shot of the blue car with the surfboard. It speaks volumes.

    1. The beach was packed that day and in spite of the fog, it was a reprieve from the heat in the city. I got a lot of good shots that day, Stew.

  6. I have to channel a little of your ability to relax and watch the world go by, Jim. I'm always flitting here, there, and everywhere!

    I know just how that day felt, though, having spent a lot of time on Nova Scotia beaches. Loved the touch of misty haze on the horizon - it brought back lots of memories.

    1. That misty haze, Louise, is good ole Nova Scotia fog! The sun was trying its best to shine through that day.....thus the great light created.

    2. We never get good fog here. :(
      I can remember being down on Long Island off Digby Neck with fog so thick I couldn't see my hand if I straightened my arm. It was pretty cool!
