Through the Lighthouse Window

I recently took a drive up the Bruce Peninsula. At the end of a very long one-lane gravel road is a beautiful old lighthouse. Decommissioned many years ago it is now preserved as a museum. It was built as a house for the light-keeper, with the light tower added to the top of the little white house. Not having a boat, I was having difficulty getting a good photo of the building. So I decided to present it a different way – as a series of photos of the windows, looking through from the inside.

Details, details.

I love details.  They’re the little things you see all the time, but never really notice.  Often they can be surprisingly beautiful.  A personal favourite of mine is old door hardware.  You see a lot of them in my Complications Portfolio. Here is a door latch I found in an alley in Port Hope:

In a Toronto alley, I spotted this interesting basement window with a woven steel mesh that has corroded nicely. I like the irregular spacing in the weave.
