Like many people I’m sometimes guilty of not taking advantage of sights and activities that are relatively close to home. We often think of travel or things we want to do as being distant when in reality that doesn’t have to be the case.
One of the things I've been doing recently is reorganizing my workspace to prep for new work coming in and for some shows I'll be in this year (I'll post info about those soon). This means though, that I'm having an bit of a clearout and some items really just have to go!
You may have noticed, if you’ve been browsing through this website, that there are a few new offerings now available. I’ve been pondering it for quite a while and rather than take the plunge I’ve decided to go ahead and ease into it.
One of the great things about having a plan is that you’re organized, you know that you need to do and have something to guide you. One of the other things though, is that you can veer off in another direction and call it improvisation. Or off piste…
As another long weekend approaches, the last of the summer, I’m looking forward to getting out and making the most of it for photos as well as having a little down time. For the photos, a key thing will be to load up my camera backpack and try to take only the things I really need with me. That’s always a challenge!
As mentioned in my previous post, I recently visited a nearby oil refinery and I’ve started work on some of the images I took. Industrial plants always intrigue me with their often intricate structures and processes, along with their history and impact on the nearby communities.
Well, that was a year we'll all remember, and a holiday season that just flew by. I won't dwell on either here as I think most people are ready to move on and look ahead to potential positives of the year to come.
I posted a photo on Instagram today, to bid farewell to the glorious colours of autumn as we slide into the long, dark winters nights, winter solstice on the horizon. The photo was taken along Elmcrest Creek in Toronto, and highlighted the abundance of golden, which is really the best way I can describe the intense glowing foliage. When I posted it though, I then started to think about winter colours. And yes, they're not all a dull grey!
As frustrating as lockdown can feel, it does give a bit more time to get stuck into things we might not have otherwise got to, and to spend more time on the things we normally do. Not feeling like I'm working against the the clock, I was surprised that I was able to develop two completely different composites in a relatively short space of time recently.
Well, I hadn't intended to do another post about natural landscapes and autumn colours at this point, but I can't really resist this one. It's actually more about a natural landscape and sunset anyway, so it is a slightly different focus to my previous post!
First blog on my new website! It feels like everything is starting to fall into place now, though there’s still plenty to do. I’ve set up this page to provide informal updates, background about what I’m working on, stories behind images, that type of thing.
