Spring Loaded

...on a spring walk through the fort.

We went to Fort Edmonton this morning. Today was season opening, and the historical museum was cluttered with people enjoying the late-blossoming spring.

I’d delayed on this week’s photo. Not deliberately, but just out of simple lack of time.

But then knowing this week’s photo goal, and knowing we were headed to a place like the Fort — rife with all manner of old farm machinery and steam-punk-esque antiques — it may have been worth the accidental delay.

So, I went to enjoy the day, too. But I also went on something of a mission: macro lens, camera set to a high-contrast monochrome colour mode, and an eye out for cogs and wheels and twisting turns of nineteenth century technological wonderments.

I found plenty.
