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.

Greater Yellow Legs. One of the more common of our shore birds. The sun had already gone down when I spotted this little fellow, so it was hard to get a proper exposure.

I saw one of these little birds for the first time last week in ricky harbour Well I'd probably seen one before but didn't know what it was. My more knowlagable friend told me the name. The reason I take pictures of wild flowers is that they stand still! I have a hard time getting shots of birds.

OOps, I just reread my last comment and I should have done that before I posted it. I meant to say Rocky Harbour, not ricky harbour. Sorry. Please feel free to visit my blog at

My pictures are very amateur but every now and then I capture a good one, as long as my subject stays still!
