My 100 & Me [WEEK 20]

As I often drive by this little body of water, I’ve constantly wondered who build this awesome structure on the bank? It doesn’t appear to ever be used, as I’ve never seen a boat or other watercraft down below. I can’t see any paths leading back to larger buildings or houses…

My 100 & Me [Week 11]

My travels took me back to Toronto for a shoot and the sunset from my hotel room window was simply stunning. I try to stay away from the standard sunset shots (landscape cutting through the middle of the image, sun placed neatly in the middle of the photo) and in this case, the horizon was so…

My 100 & Me [Week 07]

Spring has sprung! I repeat: SPRING HAS SPRUNG! It feels like we have been waiting FOREVER to see fresh flowers blooming, new buds on the trees and WARMER weather! For those in the area, you know when you have to turn the furnace on or start a fire in June, it’s been an abnormally cold Spring.

Winter Tree of Life

If you frequent this blog, you’ll know that I found this amazing tree that I’ve called the “Tree of Life.” It has these long reaching branches that entwine and feel like they reach on forever. I love photographing this tree using the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) technique because it adds movement to my…

Foley Mountain Winter Scenes

The views of our little town from the Foley Mountain lookout are enough to take your breath away. Westport has never looked so picturesque as it does when a light and fluffy snow has fallen over the town. The snow clings to everything it touches and the light bounces in every direction off of the white canvas.

Bedford Mills Winter Wonderland

Back when the snow was light, fluffy and new to the season, it looked so picturesque the way that it hung on the trees. I mean, who wouldn’t want to live in a country that had seasons that could produce these kinds of stunning landscapes? Eastern Ontario gets a lot of snow and so it’s the perfect place…

Perth Road Touring 02

It’s another weird day here today in Eastern Ontario. It’s like five degrees and the sun is trying to peak out of the clouds to give us some of that wonderful Vitamin D that we all crave during the winter. Yet, the school buses were cancelled (2nd day in a row) because of “treacherous” driving conditions this morning. I guess…

This is Forty

I cannot fathom how I’ve gone three months not writing single word or posting s single piece of work on this blog. It’s not like I haven’t been shooting, just not a lot of art was being produced. I’ve shot a bunch of family snapshots, which I’m glad I did but nothing that should (or will) be posted here. No…

Ninth Concession ICM 02

Another trip down the Ninth Concession just outside of Westport Ontario yielded some amazing new pieces of art. I love using the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) technique along side a fogged lens, some double (and triple) exposures, and a lot of luck, to create something unique (at least to my eye)…
