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.

Surfing the internet today I came across your beautiful photgraphs. This photo particularly caught my eye as I spent many summers playing and diving off that very wharf. It is located across the road from my grandmother Teresa Bonias' house. My mother is a newfoudlander who moved to
Miami,Florida in 1968, where she met and married my father and I was born. It was nice to see a picture that brings back many fond memories of the birth place of my mom, where half my family still lives and of the wharf that my grandfather Jeremiah helped build.
