“Long, hot summer days and quiet country roads yield surprises and raise questions, to the curious.” – Ed Lehming There are many times when a drive down a backroad offers interesting sights. Most frequently I see an old abandoned building and wonder how it came to be in the state it’s in. I try to picture it when it was first built, envision a family starting a home. As a new house,… Read More

“Bark and Lichen” Texture is the most enduring and ubiquitous underpinning of form… certainly a calming, meditative and appealing world for both the eye and mind. – Lynda Lehmann Here is my entry for Del Monte Y Mar’s Tuesdays of Texture Challenge Week 15 of 2017. It’s a very simple composition, a dead branch next to the trail, some of the bark already shed, revealing yet more texture in the wood below. There’s also… Read More

“Eroded” “In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.” ― Ernst Fischer Here is my entry for Del Monte Y Mar’s Tuesdays of Texture Challenge Week 13 of 2017. As I walked the streets of Todos Santos, Mexico a few brief weeks ago, enjoying the architecture,… Read More

Here’s my contribution for this week’s  Tuesdays of Texture  over at de monte y mar. Another image of a log, a part of my ongoing wood studies series, the log’s surface stripped bare by the elements, a light patina of moss forming on the smooth surface, as hemlock needles accumulate in a hollow. The blend of texture and colours make it appear, to me, like an abstract painting. Nikon D300 Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8… Read More

“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.” ― Isaac Asimov Something about fall that has always fascinated me is how slow decay, cooler temperatures, and a shorter period of daylight, can change a plant so dramatically. Recently I came across this dogwood in a local forest. Almost all the leaves show signs of decay, being thoroughly spotted and in some case, even perforated by decay. Then there are… Read More

  This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors. Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world. OK, I’m cheating a bit today. This is a closer view of the door to a church I photographed last week and posted earlier today. It looks like the doors, and the building, have seen better days and I wish… Read More

“The problem with churches of all sorts, is that so often they ignore the key teachings of the Sermon on the Mount, like the doctrine of love. So often we ask God to be on our side instead of asking that we be blessed enough to be on His. That said, the wheat and the tares must grow up together, and in the days of harvest they will be separated properly.” ―… Read More

September, the month where some days convince you that summer will last for weeks, yet others are  stern reminders that change is inevitable. This holds true this year. After weeks of above average, sweltering days, the temperature plummets and we layer on hats and sweatshirts, wondering if this summer has passed us by. The saving grace, for me is the gradual change of colours. The once verdant trees begin to shift to… Read More
