Rising from the Ashes

Just a brief post today ... Alongside this website, for several years I also ran a second site that was just for my "best" photographs. While I was working on my book, "1001 Species: A Natural History of a Small Town" (https://1001species.ca), I let it languish unattended and unloved. The time has come [...]

Bleached Bones

Along one stretch of shoreline in  the Iles-de-la-Madeleine last month the sandy shoreline was being eroded and fallen trees had been washed by the saltwater. Interesting shapes.

Focusing on Sheep

Getting right to the point ... the focal point I like to do macrophotography - getting really close in on small features such as flowers and insects. But it has always had a significant limitation - depth of field. Not all of your subject is guaranteed to be in focus. I use a [...]

Photographs – Your Thoughts Please

I wonder if I might solicit your comments please on some pairs of photographs ... well, actually on the software that edited them. This week, after a sadly lengthy wait while the slow boat arrived from China, I finally took delivery of a spiffy new computer (Apple MacBook with the new super-powerful M1 chip [...]

Weekly Photographs

A while ago I started experimenting with a website (blipfoto.com) that encourages people to post a single daily photo as a sort of visual journal. I found that I could manage the discipline of doing this ... but I think it's better to share the daily pictures somewhere that I can fully control [...]

You can visit it at https://www.greenbirding.ca/ That site, as well as showcasing individual photographs one at a time, has been augmented over the Christmas period with the addition of a collection of carefully chosen photographs in [...]

Artistic endeavours
