APHRODITE OF THE NORTH

On our recent photo trip, John took us to an abandoned house. This house was constructed of concrete and reminded me of the wartime bunkers in Holland and Germany. Inside one of the rooms we found this completely dressed mannequin but without her arms so I named her Aphrodite of the North.

REMEMBERING TOM THOMSON AND THE GROUP OF SEVEN


Yesterday I went with Dan and John on a photo field trip along the country roads. There was still quite a bit of colour and this scene reminded me of the paintings of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. It is a scene which reflects the image of Ontario.But, While the paintings of the Group of Seven are very good, the problem for me is that their art does not really challenge you. I refer to their work as comfort food for the soul.

FALL, SIXTH AVENUE, NORTH BAY

Rain, rain and more rain but the colurs are of course magnificent. Yesterday afternoon I decided to go and take some final Fall images in the downtown area. The predominant colour now is yellow. I liked this very texture and pattern rich cityscape and still not all trees and shrubs have changed yet. all in all quite a romantic image.

A DARK AND WET FALL DAY

The last few days were weather wise very wet and dark. Actually it is very nice to get great Fall colour images but when I walking along the shores of the lake I made this one simple image. I liked it because of the limited colour range, which resulted in a picture reflecting the mood of these dark Fall days.

FIELDS, FOUR MILE LAKE ROAD

Maybe not as visually spectacular than yesterdays posting but I just like this quiet late Fall landscape.
