If there is a more peaceful village than Coldwater, Ontario, I would be surprised. The Coldwater River flows through town and north to Georgian Bay. This spot is very very close to the “downtown core” of the village. I took this shot standing on an old Bailey Bridge section. Some wonderful large. old wood and brick homes along this part of the river.
In September, Coldwater has one of the best fall fairs in central Ontario. Just across Hwy 12 at the south end of the village is the Coldwater Canadiana Museum, small but delightful.

taken in 1998 with a Sony Mavica Fd 7 digital camera…. I wonder how far advanced digital cameras will be ten years from today. Note the width of those floorboards. This fort had no wall or palisade, just a collection of small buildings. 1880s era when th US Army fought the Apaches.
a thread on Photo.net where I posted sample photos from my Pony 135 and an interesting discussion developed about the quality of the photos and the relatively low cost of the camera, including the zone focusing of the camera.
just bought one today, my treat to me, still unpacking, charging battery and getting ready to take baby steps with it.
It is an awkward time to be buying , a new digital camera with the new kids on the block, CMOS sized sensored mirrorless interchangeable cameras just getting onto the market blurring the line between point and shoot and dslr….
a camera out of the old film slr tradition with some size and an actual viewfinder which is what I used in my film days, had the strongest attraction for me.
I did a lot of research and paid attention to Ken Rockwell and to dpreview.com
