Polish Mushroom Picking

Just a few pictures to all my friends with a special nod to the Polish / Ukrainian / Russian and other Eastern European friends who have memories and flash backs to the days when mushroom picking was a family activity! Happy mushroom picking everyone!

Live Like Water Retreat Winter Pictures

I got away from the city on boxing day and went to my country home in East Bolton, Quebec. The obligation of the  holidays over I made my retreat. Many of the tree’s were devastated by the freezing rain which forced them to bend to the ground. During the course of the week I took the following pictures. I also wrote a poem but I am not ready to post it just yet. So in the mean time I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Fall Abstract

During our fall semester at Dawson we had an assignment to practice zooming in and out while exposing. I took these shot at the live like water retreat while the leaves were changing colors. Here are a few shots from that series.

Photographic Impressions.

 

After seeing the Impressionist exhibit from the Clark Museum here in Montreal I am compelled to offer up these images in hommage. When Photography entered the scene some of the painters thought it was the end of their craft and profession. But, according to Renoir apparently he said “now the shop keeper only has to go to the photographer, worse for us better for the art of painting.”  The Impressionists concentrated more on the art of expression and feeling. I feel some what of an similar situation with photography in the 21st century. So many people with cameras capturing…well the only way to go is deep down inside ourselves and our feelings…the camera is now at the mercy of expressing the abstract and creative concepts as well as our daily relality.

Live Like Water Retreat:Winter

These photos are from an on going project to photograph the Live Like Water Retreat throughout the seasons. Here are some early winter shots of 2012.

Fireflys and Flowers

I guess I now know why fireflies light up all night…glowing green lights flying through the night air; its because all day long they’re busy loving one another! I’d be glowing too!
