We were on our way home from church today and spotted these two on the crest of a hill enjoying the view.
Despite the chaos going on in the world today scenes like this give me a sense of peace.
We live in a Global Village
This is a common site on a Sunday morning in the countryside around St. Jacobs where I live. St. Jacobs is often referred to as “Mennonite Country”.
Some of my favorite subjects. Rusted metal, textured wood, and peeling paint!
It’s an old latch on a double door of an old shed.
Part of the fun of photography for me is post processing. It allows me to get creative and reproduce what I saw in my mind’s eye when I took the picture.
I don’t usually do this but I thought I would include the before shot in this post as an example.
When I took this shot I loved the colours and the symmetry created by the windows and the curtains. The problem was all the ugly hydro wires. I literally looked past the wires and took the shot knowing I should be able to do something with it in post processing.
For the curious, my tools were Lightroom, Photoshop and ON1
This photo was taken in Toronto – November 2012
Early this spring I went with a few photo friends to take some shots at Sherman Falls in Ancaster Ontario. This is Ancaster Creek – downstream from the falls.
I spent an evening this week with a few new photography friends taking pictures of the St. Jacobs Dam. It’s always interesting to experiment with different settings while taking shots of waterfalls and flowing water.
