Finding Inspiration in Port Stanley, Ontario

May 27, 2013

Last weekend a friend and I headed out to Port Stanley – a beach community on Lake Erie just about a 45 minute drive from downtown London, Ontario. It is quite pleasant to walk around the small town, observe the simple and beach-friendly architecture, and then to wander down to the waterfront to walk in the sand or go for a swim. Because I’m quite obsessed with my new camera, on this trip I was particularly interested in taking photos of the colourful buildings. Since the worlds of design and fashion often meet and mimic one another, I thought it would be nice to share my photos and then see how I could recreate the style of the buildings in fashion.
