Study in Black and White

Nigel, Paul and I headed down to Fort Erie this morning in the hopes of photographing a lighthouse that is normally closed off to visitors in the winter months. Unfortunately we were one weekend too early to get onto the grounds unless we paid for a group tour. We decided against this and went to explore the Erie shoreline instead.

I had done some online research to see what was in the area and I came upon a photo of a beautiful ruin of the Crystal Beach Amusement Park. As it turned out it had been demolished for years. How did I miss this? Absolutely no clue. Maybe it was that I didn’t do enough research. We were just not having a lot of luck with structures today. So we continued along the shoreline and did find some remnants of certain sections of the park, closed back in 1989.

We continued along the shoreline into the Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-lake before deciding to call it quits for the day. While on the way home we decided to stop at 50 point pier to photograph the old piers.

As you know, I’ve been here a lot but it still makes for an interesting subject. Sometimes its good to revisit a place over and over as things will always be different each time.
