My 100 & Me [Week 33]

I recently re-read “The Democratic Forest” by William Eggleston, a photo book that is highly regarded for it’s disconnected images that somehow still tell a story. Eggleston is highly renowned for his colour photography work, in a time when the “masters” were still shooting black and white.

My 100 & Me [Week 32]

Days are starting to really blur together. “What day was that again?” That’s certainly a question I keep asking myself, and others around me because it’s really tough to know for certain. We already can’t go anywhere, but with the deep cold weather setting in last month, it’s easy to feel like we are living in a bad…

My 100 & Me [Week 31]

This is really an “odds and sods” post. It’s a collection of images that really don’t have any reason to be together. But, since this is my online journal, I can do what I want 😎 As I mentioned in my Week 30 post, it’s been bitterly cold here. I mean, really, really cold. When it’s windy, we really feel…

My 100 & Me [Week 30]

I’m taking a little walk down memory lane, when life was a little simpler, when work was able to be accomplished outside of my house without the fear of catching, getting sick or spreading a deadly virus. These images were taken in early 2020 when I was still able to travel for my work.

My 100 & Me [Week 27]…New Year

I’m not one for resolutions but after the last year, it feels like it might be a good time to hope for something better. I hope that the world gets it’s shit together in 2021. I hope that people stop dying from COVID-19. I hope that people stop blaming each other for their decisions and start to show…

My 100 & Me [Week 27]…again

As I lie here bedridden for the last couple of days with a very painful back problem, I find my mind wandering. You see, TV really just doesn’t cut it for me. I don’t have the personality that can just sit down in front of a TV screen for hours on end and keep my mind on topic. I’d rather be doing something….

My 100 & Me [Week 27]

I’ve always liked the idea of toning my photos so when I saw that the 2020 Pantone Colour of the Year was a Classic Blue, it sparked my curiosity once again. My results were pretty hit and miss as you’ll see with the photos below. I really was trying to extract a bit more richness from the blue which unfortunately…

My 100 & Me [Week 26]

We’re in full blown winter here now. Minus teens at night, not much warmer during the day. Snow covering just about everything. Can’t get my feet warm no matter what I do. Going to have to move my office setup back downstairs to the dining room for the next 4+ months where I can be…

My 100 & Me [Week 25]

The first snowfall of the season has brought a blanket of the white stuff to Bedford Mills. While there isn’t that much snow collected on the ground, and there wasn’t this beautiful swath of light illuminating the house as the sun went down, I have high hopes that we are stepping into a period where…
