Canada Geese in a Field

For the month of November for the Photo Challenge, I thought I would post “aged photographs” as November is a month for remembering (Remembrance Day in Canada and Veterans Day in the United States).

To start things off, in this photograph some Canada Geese enjoy a nice nibble in the grass. Coincidentally, this photo was snapped at a cemetery just outside of Brantford. A very pretty place with a pond, fountain, a small bridge, and some nice trees planted in memory of loved ones.
