My 100 & Me [Week 21]

I’ve been thinking a lot about fire these days. Not because I’m a pyro (well maybe a little at heart) but because it seems to me that fire is a source of a lot of metaphors in my life. A good fire offers a reliable source of heat, a comforting and often nostalgic appeal to our senses given the smells…

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 14]

I love these abstract images I created this week. There is something about the vibrancy of the colour palettes that I was able to extract out of these scenes that really appeals to me. The blues, yellows and greens really pop. I’d love to print a few of these really, really big on a…

My 100 & Me [WEEK 12]

More abstract images from the archives. These were originally posted to my Instagram feed so for the few of you that follow there intently (thanks hun!), you may have seen these already. My apologies. During the summer, you can really see the greens, yellows and browns come out in these pieces.

My 100 & Me [Week 09]

How quickly life can lead you in other directions. This blog is super important to me yet it’s been over a year since I’ve updated it. Why? I could list a thousand reasons – all of which would probably be valid in one way or another but I think the truth is that sometimes I just feel like I don’t…

My 100 & Me [Week 08]

It’s amazing how the weather shifts from week to week and how those shifts can affect your mood & emotional state. Last week was filled with blue skies, blooming flowers and an overall bright & airy colour palette. This week not so much. We were back to rain, flooding, and an overall sense…

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…

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)…

Foley Mountain Before the Storm

Standing on Foley Mountain watching a storm approach Westport was a sight to be seen. The heavy rain clouds I saw approach Bedford Mills earlier in the afternoon led me to believe there was a system of storms coming towards the area. While others might have said: “good time to hunker down and hide away…
