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.

Mostly setimental reasons. This little plant is coming into its first bloom. It is a clipping from from my mom's African Violet that has been well cared for in her memory. My mom has been deceased for 38 years, so the mother plant has got to be at least 40 years old. She was a great lover of plants and would be glad to know that her Violet is still thriving and sharing its beauty.

A very nice plant and story Lloyd. It is nice to find that there is someone else besides me who still remembers MOM after all these years. My mother loved and grew roses, and I have one growing and blooming in our back yard for her right now. She has been deceased about 42 years but I still think of her often. Thanks, Dave
