I am still working on some of the pictures I took a few days ago of the pile of garbage people just dump in the country. Old cardboard and piece of linoleum, which have started to decay. However I made some very interesting images from these discarded "bits". it will make for a nice limited edition set of abstract prints.
Yesterday I decided to see what changes took place at the sandpit. I knew that the owner was removing the old equipment but to my surprise I found only a conveyor belt left. I did find some garbage people left behind , which was some old cardboard boxes and scraps of old linoleum. Actually I made some interesting abstracts from this discarded material. Here is one of these pictures.
Thanks for your earlier posting Mr.P Here is another view of Domenic's garden. It is a very nicely shaped apple tree, which Vincent van Gogh, if he had lived in North Bay, would certainly have made famous in a few canvases.
We returned last night from our trip to Ottawa. Of course we enjoyed the time with our family but I did not get a chance to take many pictures, except a lot of family shots. When I saw the light streak on the wall behind the plant down the hallway at my daughters home I thought about my earlier image, which I posted a few weeks ago. The form and texture of the plant contrasts nicely with the smooth background.
Hostas are some of my favourite garden plants and I guess, judging by the popularity of this plant, I am certainly not unique in my choice. I like ,beside the various colours, the shape and texture of the foliage. For this image I used a split toned effect to emphasize the pattern of the leafs.by the way I wont be able to post until next Wednesday because I will be out of town visiting our children in Ottawa.See you next week again.
Every day I take pictures. No day is complete for me if I don't use my camera. So last Friday evening, going to the library, I parked my car and had to make a picture of the evening sky reflected in the city hall windows.
The 4th Annual Maamwi Kindaaswin Festival and Pow-wow is taking place this weekend. I went to the event this afternoon, met friends and of course took pictures. I concentrated on some of the colourful regalia.
Its a beautiful late Spring day and to continue on my tour another garden. I liked the strange shapes of these small pine trees. I decided to make a blue toned image to add to the strange almost unnatural look of this front yard.
Thanks for your postings Cathy. I thought you might enjoy this picture. I like the patter of the various shapes and patterns. I think these houses were built either in the forties or fifties of the last century.it also shows that yes streets here in North Bay can be quite colourful.
Each neighbourhood in this city has its own unique flavour. I simply liked the light and the colour. The picture is a combination of two images. I prefer using that technique rather than making the panorama directly in the camera.
