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.

Mr. Rees,
I have enjoyed your photos for the past several evenings, and they are excellent. You have been doing photography a while no doubt. I just wanted to thank you as your blogging efforts are helping reduce some of the apprehension I seem to be having regarding my pending return to Newfoundland. I am 64, and have always said I would return when I retired. But I guess that even returning to a place you love holds some trepeditations. It's a big move, but hopefully my last one. Thanks again.

Thank you for your comments. As for the move, having been there myself, I understand perfectly the apprehension. Australia is a long ways from home. However, there is only one way you are going to know for sure.
