****************I've been wondering just what direction my blog will go now that I face serious limitations doing photography. Most of the past 6 months pictures have been taken from the front car seat. Even if we get the chair out of our car, I can't easily position myself for anything other than a straight forward shot, and even then I can't easily hold my favourite but heavy Nikon, so I've been using my phone.
For all this I depend on Mrs. F.G. as my driver of course, and both blog posts and the actual photography are becoming more of a joint enterprise. Slowly, we're finding daytime events like these and our visit to the Art Gallery 3 weeks ago, that we both enjoy. There are a surprising number of them around here and I expect they'll keep us quite busy over the summer replacing part of the effort I used to put into solitary hiking and photography expeditions. I need to thank Mrs. F.G. for the effort of getting me out and about.
You'll probably notice a shift from natural history to local history too, and posts that take a bit of research for me (as Patsy said in a comment on my last post, 'once a professor, always a professor'). Given the time it takes to be paralyzed and still be up and about every day, I'm not going to try and post every day either. If I don't have something ready, you're just going to have to wait!
But I'm finally feeling satisfied with how this is evolving; hope you enjoy it.
If you're wondering about the logo and the name of the museum, this is Grey county, which accounts for a lot of the name. In the logo, seen from outside, green represents the forests, a big part of the first 100 years in the county. Grey are the rocks of the Niagara Escarpment, yellow is agriculture, wheat being a major crop, blue is water, and red stands for celebration. The museum was established to celebrate the people of Grey County.
