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.

This will bring back memories to every lad who grew up in a Nfld. outport or in coastal Labrador.
It was quite a knack reversing the engine without having to use an ignition switch.

Great photos....really good to see Max...looks like he got the grease cups full anyway....I ran Acadias like this a few summers...strange setup with the wet exhaust...should have a loop down around to avoid water running back through the exhaust.....maybe he has a flapper of some kind to get around the problem.Tony,St.Anthony.

It was really good to see my old Buddy Max. I enjoyed seeing his boat and the Acadia Motor into her.
Seeing Max to the tiller. Brought back memories of the "Old Days" in Batteau. Saw "Sugar" in the back there and behind. Good Luck Max and Take Care. Alex D.
