 Sunday night, after early dinner at a very pleasant Lebanese restaurant in Ottawa, we saw this painted delivery car. It is a fine example of painted cars and trucks in Pakistan, where decorating their vehicles have developed into a great new folk art. Wonderful to see that tradition transferred to our country.

Lots of rain today. We needed rain because the garden was powder dry. Again looking at some of my older images I thought about some of the great landscape photographs of the late twenties and thirties. This image brought back earlier photo trips around the country, on this trip I visited another favourite spot Wolf lake. A quiet small lake which gave me this almost old fashioned bucolic landscape.

Another picture from my files. The last few days I haven’t ventured out because of the heavy smoke outside. I made this picture last Fall on my trip to Washington with my daughter. On our visit to the Library of Congress , we had to wait in line for some time . Of course I had my camera with me, looking around or in this case up, I made this rather abstract picture of lines and rich patterns and textures. I preferred the B&W interpretation, which I decided to post because I knowthat my old photo friend David Brown would appreciate that.

Two weeks ago we went on our first photo trip of the season. It was a wonderful early Spring day and we traveled toRestoule. I was interested to visit one of my favourite places on Alsace Rd near Powassan. It was a shockwhen I saw this very quiet picturesque farm land turned into a place filled with old car wrecks.  Rusty cars and trucks everywhere and with the exemption of a few interesting old trucks and cars not worth to spend time taking pictures. All in all very disappointed. Anyway I did made a few images which I liked.

 It has been awhile since my last posting. Well I came out of hibernation this weekend thinking Spring is just around the corner. My mistake, yesterday we were hit by another Winter storm. Hopefully this is our last storm. So here an old file picture, which I took many years ago in the beautiful Elora Gorge. It is an image rich in textures and shapes. What intrigued me however was how the cedars grow on this rock formation with hardly any soil.
