Visit to a Country Garden


Some friends and I had an opportunity to visit eastern Ontario mutual friends this past weekend. As usual, my camera was slung over my shoulder, and I spent some time wandering around the property and gardens taking snaps of anything that caught my interest. The photos in this album are the ones I decided to keep.

A Day in the Country – August 25, 2017


Spending some time at the country home of some friends – some photos I took while wandering around and near the property. Enjoy …

A Day at Ferme la Machine


I had an opportunity to spend a day at a delightful farm in the town of Montpellier, Québec. The farm is owned by a lovely couple who made me feel welcome as I spent the day walking around taking photos of anything that appealed to me. These are some of the images I took that day.

For additional information on the farm please feel free to visit their website at http://www.fermelamachine.com.

More from North Glengarry County


I continue to wander around North Glengarry county with cameras at the ready. More of my more recent photos … enjoy.

Trying Out My New Lens


Several years ago, I had this zoom telephoto lens that I enjoyed using – so much so that it became a regular fixture on my camera. And then one day, while I was driving a rented car out in Alberta, someone cut me off and I slammed my left foot on the clutch. Oops, that was the brake! I was not driving my standard and the car came to a very abrupt stop. Unfortunately I neglected to hang the camera strap over the head rest of the passenger seat. End result: one badly damaged zoom telephoto lens!

I tried doing without and after two years I broke down and replaced the lens and started trying it out about a week ago. These photos are some of the results from a few places I have visited in the past week with my camera. Enjoy!

Quiet Reflections


This week’s photos are brought to you by the letter “R”, for “Reflection”.

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” (Edith Wharton)

Some of my photos where reflections play a key role … enjoy, and don’t forget to reflect on what you are seeing.
