November Theme Day - Colour Blue



This month's theme is the colour blue. I chose to take this photo of the original Chief Commanda boat that formerly plied the waters of Lake Nipissing serving as both a pleasure craft, tourist boat as well as a supply ships for some of the communities on the French River. The boat is now permanently moored at the North Bay Marina where during the summer it is used as a restaurant. The colour blue can be seen throughout the boat, from it's smoke stack, window coverings as well as the awnings on the entrances.

Love the shot of the ship. North Bay is a beautiful city. My cousin lives there and she loves it. I'm not so sure I would want to live that far north. I'm in southern Ontario.

Neva said...

Olivier I agree with...nice sky behind the boat!!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Cool shot, great boat photo, very well done, Craig! :-D

Zhu said...

Hi there !

I was browsing your pics but I figured I'd comment on the last one.

North Bay looks nice... I'm from Ottawa (well, really I'm French but I moved to Canada a few years ago) and I miss water - anything, sea, river etc. - so much ! Well, we do have the Ottawa river but it's not the same..

Is it cold up there? I had this idea the NB was quite cold for some reason... maybe the name ;)

Lynette said...

Great photo for your theme day photo. Have you eaten there?

Blue on grey ... nice shot

Kerri said...

Neat shot for theme day! I bet it would be fun to go to dinner on that boat.

Annie said...

Restaurants in formerly otherwise used places always strike me as just right. I'd like to board the boat for a relaxing supper.

Jules said...
