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.

Delicacy. Found almost everywhere along the walking trails.

The warm colours in the boulders and the coolness of the colours in the water makes this photo dynamic. I really like it.
I have not seen the power of the sea being from the interior of BC but I can only imagine

Thank you for your comment! This is such an ordinary scene down here that I was on two minds whether or not I should post it.

You are most welcome! I'm glad you chose to post it....sometimes ordinary scenes photographed with the right "eye" makes the scene wonderful.
