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.

The late afternoon sun was shining directly into the camera, so it was difficult to get a better photo.

Just wanted to say that your pictures are beautiful, very professional. My husband is from Conche. I would like to paint some of your pictures if that is alright. I am an artist in alberta. All credit will be given to you for the photography. Your name will appear on the back of my paintings. Hope this is fine.
Thank you

Madeline, thanks for the compliment. Nothing would give me greater pleasure than to know that a photograph I took was the inspiration for a painting. I used to paint myself and still take pictures with that in mind.
