Swanny and Signets Feeding Growing Harbourfront Park Hamilton
Saturday july 17th 2010
Swanny and Signets are Feeding and Growing at Harbourfront Park in Hamilton Ontario Canada
Was a wonderful day to meet people and to see how well Swanny and signets were plumping up
in just three days from the last pictures.Comparing the Signets from three days ago to today there is a significant
difference in there size. They are looking as cute as ever.The Father swan was fending off dogs that were unleashed
and disturbing nature and other people. There are always bad eggs in any bunch and I was lucky today to meet 3 very
interesting people.The Picture below is the Male swan protecting his family from the geese whom were chased into
the water by the two unleashed Dogs , right by swannys signets.
The Signets are looking as cute as ever
After shooting some pictures of Swanny and family started talking to Ed and Susan.Ed Is a very interesting man and grew
up in this wonderful area. He informed me what the area looked like in the past, he belongs to the RBG and is outspoken on there
approach to Consevation or over protection.I have been reading information on the History of Cootes Paradise and Artists and Conservationists that view the effort
of the RBG to be less than affective. There will be more posts regarding the history of cootes paradise and Ed has lots of information I would like to talk further with him
and also to be part of DW photography series “Men and there environment”.
Hope he gets hold of me.
I met a gentlman that was riding what looked like a 10 speed at first site.After further conversation
I learned “Bear” built his ebike himself with ion batteries in his back pack, a motor in the wheel base, all way to technical
for me to remember. But a real cool person and interesting and a great laugh.I apologise for my grammer .
Cootes paradise was worth every hour today becuase of the people I met, and the wonderful scenery and cooler air. “Bear” is not his real name
and will be correcting this post and adding more about Bear and his love for technology after I speak with him via email.
Hope you enjoy the pictures today and the Posts to come.
Have a great weekend
