• Watermark
    Lake Ontario, ON - Francesca Fernandes

My Watermark is Lake Ontario.

Every summer since 2009, I visit the islands, Centre Island and Ward Island in Lake Ontario.

I take someone new with me every year and I pretend to be a tourist guide showing around and teaching them all I know.

In this process I have learned more and loved more in this lake, more than anywhere else.
