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.

Outside my window. Since my last posting I've been on one heck of a trip: Up to death'
door,literally, but clawed back from the brink by the miracle of modern medical tecnology. I have also changed my address. I am presently living in a Personal Home Care facility: Meadow Creek Retirement Centre, Paradise, NL, and contrary to everything I imagined, I love it here,and am feeling better and happier than I have been in a long time. My children placed a bird feeder near my window and it soon attracted those beautiful birds,. The only problem is that the crows get there first and clean up most of the food, I'd like to wring their necks, they are such an awful pest . In this case I'm not sure that intelligence is such a virtue. They are very greedy.
