TRAIN ENGINE 503, NORTH BAY

It saddens me to see the old steam train engine deteriorating in one of the cities storage areas. This train should be placed at the museum because otherwise I am afraid that soon this piece of history will be lost.

APPROACHING THUNDERSTORM

Turning into our street after returning from lunch this afternoon I saw this magnificent cloud formation over the summer landscape. It looked quite spectacular so of course I had to stop and take some pictures. It definitely called for  a black and white image to emphasize the great cloud formation.

DRAMATIC SKY, LAKE NIPISSING


This morning I was looking through my files looking for an image wanted to work on when I came across this picture, which I took last October. It looked interesting so I thought let me work with this picture. So here it is as a composition its very simple but the sky gives it drama.

ASSEMBLING THE WATERFRONT SCULPTURE, JULY 1991

Yesterday I promised to post a picture from my photo story on the making of the waterfront sculpture. It took more than thirty area workers to make the various components for the artwork. Here Michèle Lapointe and René Rioux are hard at work finishing their sculpture.

LE DROIT À LA DIFFÉRENCE (DETAIL) , NORTH BAY

What a beautiful day we had today. So this morning we decided to go for a walk along the waterfront. The clouds were simply monumental and when we got to the sculpture on the waterfront we realized that this Summer it was exactly twenty five years ago that we met the artists MichèleLapointe and her partner René Rioux. During that Summer we had a wonderful time together discussing art and politics of course while enjoying good food, wine and chocolate. I took many pictures and I might post some of them in the coming days.
