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.

A magical capture. The light streams and the clouds outline the people perfectly.
You're much, much more talented then strictly amateurish!!

You're most welcome.
I like your vision, your photographs of the fauna are well composed and show thing most people would walk by. A great assortment of Newfoundland plants. I look forward to seeing more

I absolutely love this! You've captured the very essence of youth and playfulness! Also says something about...ah can't explain it other than...the kid in front looks like he/she is busy with a cell phone while the young boy in back couldn't care about any "new" technology and would rather go back to the way kids used to play, each unaware of what the other is doing. This photo really is worth a thousand words!
