EARLY MORNING COFFEE

Occasionally I like to use my iPad to create pictures. A few days ago I had to upgrade some apps and, after downloading, got a renewed interest in, what is referred to as mobile photography or also iphoneography. Artists and photographers use their iPhones and tablets to create their images. So here is one I made after taking asimple picture of my early morning coffee sitting on a little glass table next to my chair. What attracted me first of course was the light and shadow pattern and I should say it worked well in a traditional black and white rendition. But then I started to play with a few apps and I ended with a rather painterly image, which I liked.

SNOW LANDSCAPE, POWASSAN

I have never made a print from this negative. It was shot on 400ISO film which I had overdeveloped at the time, my mistake, but yesterday I had scanned the negative and simply loved the result. The grain added to the feeling of a snowy day, while giving the image an almost charcoal drawing effect.

WINTER LANDSCAPE WITH BARN

Another cold landscape. I hope Linda will like this as much as the one I posted yesterday. It was a beautiful Winter day with ice all over the trees. The light was beautiful and of course I had to photograph this very Wintery and romantic winter scene.

WINTER LANDSCAPE NEAR POWASSAN

This is a more traditional landscape photograph. I still enjoy these old images reminiscent of the old pictorialist tradition of beautiful black and white prints.

DUCHESNAY FALLS, SUMMER VIEW

Today a classic black and white print of Duchesnay Falls in the Summer. In the Spring and Fall of course the view is very different but at the height of the Summer the falls are dry. So this is a different view with the strong textures and patterns of the exposed rocks.
