This morning Dan and I drove to Mattawa to take some pictures. The light was pretty flat on this early Spring day. Actually the correct light for photographing the remnant of the Mattawa railway station. 
The condition of the building could be expressed in one word, sad. I don't think this station could be saved because the cost would be prohibitive. It definitely looks like a symbol of the end of the railway era in Northern Ontario.

Last week I thought I found Spring but then I lost it somewhere in the streets of Montreal. On my search to find it again, I found this tree, which at least could always remember Summer when looking at the wall.

Walking past an old building being demolished in the old part I had to photograph this texture rich wall. It was the right time. A streak of sunlight added drama to this image, which reminded me of the beautiful pictures you see of the universe. The image fits nicely in my ongoing project of photographic abstractions.

We just returned from from seeing the exhibition Chagall and Music at the Montreal Museum of Art. It was simply a wonderful experience. It is a very large show with 340 works of art ranging from large paintings to drawings, etchings, sculptures, pottery and especially a wide variety of costumes and set designs from various opera productions. All I can say is go and see the great show. well worth a special visit to Montreal.

First I like to post this picture. for Dave and Dianne, who like my abstract images. This last few days I have been working on a series of abstracts. I am always interested in the quality of textures, patterns and lines. Maybe its my interest in art ad especially painting. The American abstract artists have always been the artist I greatly admired. Now I started to get interested in,what I refer to as street art.
