School of Architecture

Students at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture in Cambridge Ontario can get inspiration not only from the building the school is in (the former Riverside Silk Mill) but also by looking out of the library window for a view of the Old Post Office / Idea Exchange which has been renovated and expanded incorporating an innovative blend of old and new.

These two sites were on the list of 34 sites open to the public during Doors Open Waterloo Region 2018

Fish Dinner

Heron Fish Dinner

Saw this one fishing in the Grand River in Cambridge on the weekend. Was able to sit there and watch and take this shot of it enjoying a fish dinner.

After a some photo artistry I came up with this version which will be a part of the Art in the Park event in Elmira this weekend Saturday September 8th from 10am – 2pm.

Water Lily

I took this Water Lily photo while Kayaking at Pinehurst Conservation Area and made some photo art with a watercolor effect in photoshop. I love being out amongst the Lily pads watching the dragon flies and birds.


Boy on a Bike

Boy on a Bike

I’m experimenting with some photo-art to get the creative juices flowing again.

I shot the original photo of this Mennonite boy on his bike near where I live. While the original photo was ok I think this art effect gives it a bit more interest.


Water Music

The Goose Conductor

I took this while Kayaking at Rockwood Park. It makes me think of an Orchestra Conductor conducting water music.


Rockwood Park Falls

Rockwood Conservation Area Falls

Rockwood Park Falls

I took the kayak to Rockwood Park the other week and was able to get this shot of the falls. It is a great place to explore with a canoe or kayak. There are also nice hiking trails and a beach.

It is one of the Grand River Conservation Authority Parks and you can find more info here. https://www.grandriver.ca/en/outdoor-recreation/Rockwood.aspx


Delicate Iris


Purple Iris

We have these delicate little Irises growing beside our driveway and they always put on a good show this time of year.
