A Little Yellow Peeks Out

I'm not sure what this little weed is; I only know it's beautiful! There are a few that pop up around my garden, from under a heavy cover of other plants. They almost always only have a single yellow blossom showing at a time and several waiting their turn. It is only about 2mm x … Continue reading A Little Yellow Peeks Out

A Very Green Affair

I've been cultivating wild sumacs into a nice hedge for a few years now and they are always growing. The baby leaves are tiny and almost insect-like. When I shot this macro, the sun was extremely bright and it looked like white heat was emanating from the plants. All I needed to do was hike … Continue reading A Very Green Affair

A Procession of Pink

My Cabot roses are fading early this year, or so it seems to me. They only seem to last a day before wilting, but I may be imaging things due to my busy work schedule. I'm only really looking at them every few days. Regardless, I am endeavouring to capture the vibrant pink every chance … Continue reading A Procession of Pink

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Pushing Boundaries of Differentiation

Yes, I know...yet another photo of my beloved Japanese maple! What can I say? I really love it and get so much joy from the inspiration it delivers. This shot is all about textures for me. I zoomed in as close as I cool and then played with resolutions to get the distortions from the … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Pushing Boundaries of Differentiation

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Natural Contrasts

I grabbed hold of these for a whole different purpose... a natural dyes project. The berries give beautiful blues, purples and greens. The leaves give wonderful browns and greens in very subtle tones. I didn't try to use the stalks... I was told they can be toxic and cause skin irritation. The bark and wood … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Natural Contrasts

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Life Cycles

Dandelions and other similar flowers in their family have a special magic to them, at least for me. On the same plant, we can witness the entire life cycle at the same time. From the burgeoning nib on the stalks to the flower bud, onto the blossom and past to the seeding and decay of … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Life Cycles

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – It’s All Green To Me

One could argue that there is no actual yellow, nor orange in these strange pumpkins (so-called by the farmer at this particular market) and if you were in the middle of colour explorations in say a painting course, your argument would be quite on the ball. However, I still see the additional colours. Perhaps it's … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – It’s All Green To Me

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Inside Burgundy

I find myself attracted to Lily-like flowers. It's not so much the shape of the petals, but the wald range of deep colours, the luxurious texture of the petals, and the dramatic structure of the inside of these remarkable plants. All this becomes interesting to me only because I get really close to them and … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Inside Burgundy

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Laurentian Vistas

On a long hike near form waterfalls in Rawdon, Qc... We walked by various ponds, bogs, and streams. My amazing daughter spotted this vista and grabbed me to come and shoot it... this is entirely her framing. She didn't express what she was seeing and even after showing her what she caught, she claimed it … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Laurentian Vistas

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Rooted In Beauty

I seem to always get stopped in my tracks by exposed roots. These very old cedar roots are a perfect example. I see the inspiration for many fantasy landscapes and cityscapes, hiding places for monsters and inconspicuous doorways into the Faerie realms. Blur the focus, change the contrast, remove the colour and the whole scene … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Rooted In Beauty
