 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.

Sunday afternoons visited the art exhibition Ice Follies on Lake Nipissing. Now I confess that I did not see the exhibition at night , which might be quite interesting. So I can only comment on my reaction to the various displays on the lake. Over the years I have enjoyed looking at the wide variety of the many creative art works. I must say that I was disappointed in the overal quality of the various art works on display. The overal show lacked the creative WOW factor. However it was nice to see the work of these North Bay artists.

We are on our first steps to the beginning of Spring. Well it has been a rough Winter season with lots of snow and ice. The last few days have been very pleasant with lots of sun and very comfortable temperatures during the daytime. Following David Hockney’s example I did not go far to get some interesting images. So here is an example of my Winter pattern. pictures taken in our garden and on my simple walks around our neighbourhood.

Looking at my pictures from my trip to Washington last Fall, I came across this image of the breadline by George Segal. What a magnificent rendition of the grinding poverty of the nineteen thirties. Of course what makes this artwork so interesting is the relevance to our own disturbing times.

Last September our daughter Monique took me on a trip to Washington, DC. One of the places we visited was the city of Alexandria, VA, where we stayed for a few days. It’s a place which I found quite attractive,    
Of course we were not the only visitors who were drawn to this well preserved historical city. Walking downtown I photographed this old truck and sculpture of a horse. It was early morning and the golden sunlight created a city landscape with rich colours and texture. The additional pattern of sun flare, added to the visual impact of this colourful Fall scene.
