This is a life guard station along the lake shore in the Beaches area of Toronto. The golden colours acted like a magnet as I walked along the shore with camera in hand. Of course I had already taken a few photos of the moon and the moonlight shimmering on the water. This time I saw something more and quickly found a fence post upon which I rested the camera in hopes of getting a decent shot. I am satisfied with the result.
It is easy to see the small structure as a beacon of light in the darkness. Somehow, this struct me as being an image of the masculine trapped in the darkness looking towards the moon, the feminine, trying to find a way to bridge the distance. And in saying that something more emerges and I see the golden structure for what it is, a beacon that gives one hope in the darkness, a beacon not so unlike a church that says one can be saved from the chaos of darkness.
With the photo taken, I rushed off to rejoin the others with whom I had taken the evening walk.
