Some pics from the cottage...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I went to the cottage this last week and thought I would share some pictures. If you want to see Nakita, check out FurPictures forum. Sorry that the pics are large, haven't adjusted them yet.

It rained almost every day and was cold! Here is a pic on the one day that it was sunny.... taken while on the dock.


Flowers, have no idea what these two are.....(let me know if you know what they are, thanks!)




The often overlooked dandilion gone to seed for another year...



My sister's birthday is this month and she wanted a picture of the cottage. Since the property has been in my family for close to 70 years I thought I would create a 'historical' look to some pictures and give them as gifts. Here's the first one, of the cabin, that I altered in photoshop. When I have more time I hope to do all 5 buildings on our property and give them as a set to my family.



Hope you enjoyed them!

Thanks everyone for your replies! The cabin was the first thing build by my grandparents when they bought the property. Then they built a small cottage a few years later and we built our main cottage in 1963.

To answer Miss Mew's question I'm starting to look into a side business, but I'm not there yet. I did sell one of my photos to an artist last year though.

It's located 2 hours north of Toronto, Ontario otherwise known as cottage country. Or up to 3 hours if the traffic or road construction is really bad!! Because of the explosion in cottage owners they now have to widen all the roads to accomodate 4 late highways. It's a shame since everything is changing so much for the humans benefit, and the natural environment is suffering.

Our cottage is no longer the same as well. Everyone had simple cottages up until the 1990's then the yuppies started building their million dollar cottages and purchasing huge boats. They even found a decapitated loon last year on my lake as a result of some moron and his boat.

It sickens me to see this thing we call 'progress'. My grandparents would turn over in their graves if they saw all the changes. Ok, stepping off my soapbox.
