My Photo

My home is in Chamberlains, CBS, Newfoundland: a place close enough to sea so that I can go there to watch the glorious sunsets over the bay, and the other infinite variety of sights and sounds that are forever changing, yet forever the same. I'm not as young as I used to be and don't get around much any more, but I've had many wonderful hours of enjoyment with my Yasihca 44 TLR and trusty old OM-2. I've always enjoyed photographing wild flowers, particularly the smaller ones, many of which , albeit mostly overlooked and dismissed as weeds, are exquisitely beautiful. Digital photography, complete with all the magic of its own portable darkroom, has brought a new dimension to the hobby. My OM-2 is retired now, but it is such a beautiful instrument, such a joy to hold and behold, that I don't think I will ever want to part with it. My digital, used mostly, is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30. Its 35-420 mm Leica zoom lens can really reach out for those hard to reach shots. My photographs are strictly amateurish, but hopefully some have succeeded in capturing something of the moment that inspired them.

Lloyd. Love your photos and am also one still holding onto my trusty OM-1 and OM-2 SLRs. I used to use my OM-1 for all my B/W shooting which I still think is the most elegant medium out there. Occasionally I would color some of the white spaces with Marshall oils but its been a long time since I did any of that. At 50 and being a single parent of 3 kids not quite in HS yet, it is just too easy to pick up my Canon digital and take pics. Oh well. From Chapel Hill, NC, USA, have a great weekend.
