OLD BARBER CHAIR

Yesterday I posted a picture of the JD Barbershop here in North Bay. I forgot to complete the information about the new barber chairs, which replaced the old "antique" chairs. One of these old chairs will be kept as decoration. So here an image of that chair. I think the American photographer William Eggleston would appreciate this barbershop interior.

GETTING A HAIRCUT

It has been quite awhile since my last posting. But yesterday I went to my favourite barbershop to get my hair cut. In my experience its definitely the best barbershop in town. Actually I posted a picture of this shop in October 2010. A few weeks ago the old barber chairs were replaced with new chairs and  an extra chair was added. While waiting I kept myself busy taking a few pictures.

CEDAR GROVE, ANOTHER VIEW


I could not resist posting another view of the cedar grove. What I like in this image is the illusion of movement. Every time I visit this small cedar forest I enjoy the sculptural quality of the trees, which seem to be taking part in some natural dance performance.

CEDAR GROVE, VILLE MARIE, PQ

What a beautiful day it was yesterday, when my friend Gerry and I traveled to Ville Marie to take some pictures at the site of the old Fort Témiscamingue in Ville Marie. It was very quiet because the site is not open yet. this of course was ideal for taking pictures. for me the most interesting section is the old cedar grove. I simply love the almost mystical atmosphere of the grove. The magnificent shapes of the trees and the light accentuating the textures and form of the trees.

DUCHESNAY FALLS DRY

I took this picture at the height of Summer when Duchesnay Falls is almost dry, in contrast to the the Spring and fall when the water cascading down the falls is truly spectacular. But I do like the rich textures and shapes of the bare rocks of the dry falls.
