REMEMBERING THE PARKVIEW HOTEL

Last night I was looking at some of my old prints and then I realized that i never posted a picture of this old North Bay landmark the Parkview Hotel. This place held a lot of memories for many People her in North Bay. It was a great place but like many other old buildings, it now is only a memory.

ABANDONED FARM, NORTH BAY

The old farmhouse at the end of our street looks pretty neglected  yesterday's fog added to the forlorn look of the Winter landscape.

REFLECTION, NYC

Have not been on any photo trip lately. I am working on some other projects but when I was looking for some pictures I needed I got interested in a file with images I made in NYC. So I liked this reflection but I made a few different interpretations of this picture. I made a few in colour, which worked fine but eventually I prefered this toned monochrome image.

BARN NEAR WATERLOO, ONTARIO

Here is the barn where I photographed the cat sitting behind the glass enjoying the sun. It is quite interesting going back through my files and then using the raw files to create new interpretations of an image. It reminds me what Ansel Adams said. The negative is the score and the print is the interpretation. The RAW files are simply the substitute for the negative.

BARN CAT

Again working with some old images because I simply don't feel wandering around in this weather to take Winter images. This picture I made some years ago at the end of the Winter near Waterloo, Ontario. This area has some very beautiful old farms. Outside a barn I noticed some cats enjoying the sunshine. One of them decided to stay in the barn. The barn was old and tomorrow I will post a black and white image of the old farm.
