Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Life Cycles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the stalks to the flower bud, onto the blossom and past to the seeding and decay of … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Life Cycles

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Just Before I Go…

Hydrangeas are another flower that kickstarts my imagination. It always amazes me how they shift through so many colours in a single season and then, as they are dying in the Fall, develop impossible amounts of character on their papery petals. When the blue has gone, we start to see faded lavenders, pinks, and greens … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Just Before I Go…

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – It’s All Green To Me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 Perhaps it's … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – It’s All Green To Me

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Inside Burgundy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 All this becomes interesting to me only because I get really close to them and … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Inside Burgundy

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Laurentian Vistas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what she was seeing and even after showing her what she caught, she claimed it … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Laurentian Vistas

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Rooted In Beauty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

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Glorious Decaying

Many of you have seen my photos of this little Japanese Maple tree that is stubbornly surviving in my backyard. It's been moved almost yearly since I first got it a decade ago. Many times have I thought it didn't survive the winter and there was a very dry summer I was sure it had … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Glorious Decaying

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Exposed To The Elements Of Tourism

Ok, so I admit that I titled this one over 3 months ago and I have no memory of what I was imagining in it. Perhaps the exposed roots with the bark gone and the wood worn smooth by the years of people sitting on them. Having explained that; I imagine this photo needs to … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Exposed To The Elements Of Tourism

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Essential Yellows

I'm not sure what kind of flowers these are. I found them at The Morgan Arboretum on a warm Summer's day and they reflected the warm comfort of that day. I love the complexity of the structures and sub-structures within this flower... There's a fantasy architecture of some alien world in these, where the petals … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Essential Yellows

Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Crowded Autumn Colours

Looking out the windows of my suburban home on this gray early winter morning, I'm happy to be reminded of the beauty that was and will be again. There are colours even in the cold dampness of this season, but they only start jumping when the snow falls. For now, we can remember the warmth … Continue reading Revisiting Some Unpublished Photos of 2020 – Crowded Autumn Colours
