The Photo Challenge at Donna's blog this month is street scenes. I have chosen 3 photos from my archives that depict the main streets of 3 different sized towns going from small to large. Each of the photos were taken with my Canon point and shoot set on Auto.
This photo was taken on Water St. in the tourist town of
St. Andrews, NB. It was a lovely warm day on August 31, 2013 with lots of tourists around at 4:00 in the afternoon. This is one of our favourite places to visit in the summer. It has a lot of history and beautiful buildings and is situated on the Passamaquoddy Bay.
I like the flags, hanging baskets and lampposts, the colourful wooden buildings, the cars lining the street and the people.
This is downtown Moncton, NB, the city where I was born and grew up. The Main St. is very busy. The scene above is an underpass with the railway tracks running over the street. It's always been called "The Subway" even though it's not underground. This photo was taken at 11:47 am on August 23, 2012. It was a very hot summer day. I like the colourful flowers, the trees, the cobbled sidewalk and the banner on the post. It certainly looks much more attractive than it did when I was growing up!

Yeah, it looks so much better today!! :)
I took this photo from the top of a double decker "hop on-hop off" bus in Times Square, NYC. It was just after 5:00 on Sunday
Nov. 18, 2012. My friend and I took the bus with the intention of sight seeing but the bus was so slow that we got off near Macy's.
I love the busyness of the scene, the traffic, people waiting to cross the street, and all the colourfully lit signs. NYC was fascinating to me with all the activity 24/7, and we were staying at the Crowne Plaza Hotel right on Times Square so we were in the heart of it all. A far cry from the rural road I live on which you can see in my header photo.
Donna is hosting this photo challenge right here!
I invite you to join us or perhaps just visit the other participants.
Have a wonderful weekend.
