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.

Spotted those today near my mailbox. Had to hurry back for my camera because the blossoms fold and fade before sunset.

In all the eight years I've been here I've yet to find a Pitcher Plant. Every inch of land on ther southern Avalon is scraped over for new housing development . Fools paradise I call it. I grew up on Bell Island '

I'd love to live in the Corner Brook area just fot the joy of photographing Lady's Slipper, arguably the most beautiful of all our wild flowers.

Danny is smart, no question about that. The question is whether or not he is wise.

Hi Lloyd,
I'm with you on wishing to live in the Corner Brook area. My mother used to grow Lady Slippers in our front yard in Corner Brook when I was a boy. We could both go together and have a great day photographing this delightful flower. Forgive me for a moment of wishful thinking. Thanks, Dave
