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.

School's out, the tulips are up and the capelin are in: the sure signs that summer had arrived. Nothing has remained unchanged except the "capelin scull" weather .
Great monsters of the deep have vacuumed up the capelin for the purpose of extracting the spawn from the females., while the remainder , including the males, are dumped back, dead, into the ocean. Capelin being the lynchpin of the ocean's food-chain, nothing illustrates better the insufferable greed of humankind nor the oft times barbaric abuse of the ecosystem.
