Lily Pads in the Sun – Fruitlessly Hunting for the Flowers at Noon

Another outing on my kayak and I thought I was better prepared with a wide brim hat and prescription sunglasses... you see, it is very glary on the water and very hard to see the camera screen... I'm also averse to the practice of taking dozens of shots and hope one is excellent, but with … Continue reading Lily Pads in the Sun – Fruitlessly Hunting for the Flowers at Noon

Recycled Centuries – Montreal Walls – Thirteen

See more of Montreal Walls... Montreal is a port city founded over 375 years ago and the building materials were readily gathered from the land of the island, as well as the iron rich, sturdy slate, and granite core of this dormant volcano we live on. In the older parts of the city, the foundations … Continue reading Recycled Centuries – Montreal Walls – Thirteen

Creative Blocks – Grey Sunshine

We can find the most amazing things to see when walking to clear the mind. Concrete has always fascinated me, literally. The greys are almost always warm when dry and they feel both solid and ephemeral at the same time... as if they could be crumbled to dust with an unexpected tap to the right … Continue reading Creative Blocks – Grey Sunshine

It was a mix of topsoil, clay, compost, and sod-soil. It came out dry and granulated. I raked it over roughly … Continue reading Traces At Sunset

Just So… Beautiful

It's really easy to walk by certain gifts from Mother Nature and take them for granted. Macro photography has been allowing me to, well, stop and smell the roses. There is so much beauty always around us that I can't help but feel my soul soaring in happiness and gratitude for it. The fragility of … Continue reading Just So… Beautiful

Greyscale Sunrise At War

It's amazing how strong and vibrant the sunrise gets in the Spring over Montreal. There's always lots of humidity in the air to haze the brightness, but the sun feels like it's burning through it all to touch us with the hope of Spring and the promise of warmth in Summer. If you can imagine … Continue reading Greyscale Sunrise At War

The Sun Burns Through

I almost didn't post this one. When I was framing it, I felt my retinae burning and wasn't sure if I was capturing the effect I imagined. The effect was that the longer you stare into this sunburst, the wider it seems to be getting. While editing it, my doubts came back again as I … Continue reading The Sun Burns Through
