GETTING READY FOR THE HARVEST FESTIVAL

Yesterday we visited Screaming Heads in Burks Falls. There was quite a bit of activity going on and the owner told us that they were getting ready for the Harvest festival. Now it became clear to me what the function was of the various domes and pyramids on the property. These were the frames for the temporary tents where a variety of performances take place. I never realized the size of this festival. It definitely is not a traditonal harvest festival taking place during September and early October. So check out the festival's website to get an idea of this truly fantastic event.

PEGGY'S COVE, NOVA SCOTIA

Peggy's Cove is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Nova Scotia. At sunset everybody watches the sun set behind the lighthouse. But what many people miss is the very interesting rocky landscape around that same lighthouse.I simply prefer the beautiful shapes and textures of the rocks.

WHALE BONE, PEGGY'S COVE, NS

Looking for some negatives I came across a few images from a trip to Nova Scotia. I made this picture at Peggy's Cove. It was a difficult negative to print because of the low subject contrast. The grey whale bone was left against a grey rock. So I scanned the original negative and using a few image programs, the result was a visually quite interesting picture.

This image is just pure colour, patterns and textures, which reflect the noise and the vibrancy of this neighbourhood in Toronto.

LIQUOR STORE, NORTH BAY

Stopping off at the liquor store on a warm Summer day I took a picture of this simple cityscape. By making some adjustments, which gave this image a visually interesting twist.
