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.

(Note earlier posts on plant.)
This is a delicious drink, easy to prepare, abundant and free because it grows in the wild. I wonder why no one has hit upon the idea of marketing it.

A very lovely and inviting photo Lloyd! Next time I'm in Newfoundland, I will be sure to gather up some of this plant and enjoy it as you suggest. I really enjoy wintergreen tea picked from the bush, but after about 3 or 4 cups, it has a rather laxative effect. But the smell of it brewing is absolutely wonderful. Thanks, Dave
