Beautiful Rural Waterloo Region

Taken earlier this year... I love the misty look and vantage point from the hill!

It almost reminds me of a Grandma Moses type painting - there are a few spots in our area that have such scenes.  

 

Greetings Cards for sale

Hello! It's been a long couple of months since I have posted anything.  I have been flat out busy with my day-to-day real estate photography work.

One thing I want to talk about today is that I am offering greeting cards now.  These are great ways to own or share a piece of fine art photography, perhaps before you purchase a larger version.  The cards are put together by hand and are blank on the inside.  These are for sale at the Uptown Gallery in Waterloo.  Or contact me directly.

Marshall Point Lighthouse, Port Clyde, Maine - Christmas 2016

Welcome back to my blog!   I haven't done any landscape photos this past week.. it happens.   A mini "dry spell" is all it is. 

This is a photo which I took last year almost to the day.  It has a somber but romantic, thoughtful atmosphere.   When you look at the girl walking, you imagine she is being quietly reflective as she walks.  She is soaking up the environment, the sounds of the water and the wind. Maybe she is thinking about her family, or her future. I imagine she feels good inside, and she realizes that her life is stable and blessed.  Even the color and style of her clothing matches that of the environment.  Although the scene is dull and cold, the lighthouse symbolized hope and light, and the wreath a quiet expression of Christmas.

It's been a pleasure sharing this with you

Wellesley, Ontario

Hello again! Here is an image which I took earlier this month – and forgot about posting it.

This was taken in an area of Wellesley, Ontario which was just off the highway, adjoining the river.   I’m sure I and many other people have driven past it before without noticing.   I mean basically this is a "swamp" or flood plain - what have you.  Roadside empty land.   For some reason I felt compelled to get out of my car and do photos that day.  I saw something in it.   The line of trees, the water, the stormy sky.   When the sun came out - CLICK - I nailed it.

 

Just for fun, I created a view of what it would look like in a home, hung over the fireplace:

I also converted the image to black and white....  lots of fun.  Not sure which I prefer?

I have to say the great thing about looking at winter photos is we can stay snug and warm while we view them ))))) 

Have a wonderful day
