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.

Very busy craft! Newfoundland is pumping 380,000 barrels/day from its three wells. At $100/brl, that's a good day's pay. Nfld's share of government net profits is supposed to be 46% but the feds have been "clawing back " 70% of this , leaving them with an 86% share and Nfld only 14% . This is the royal rip-off that Danny is fighting to correct. The deal struck with P.M. Martin is only a partial solution. P.M. Harper's reneging on a promise is the obstacle now standing in the way of a fair and amicable settlement.
