This evening we put on display 18 of my photographs at the Woolwich Township Hall – 24 Church Street West Elmira, Ontario.  I have titled this exhibit “Imagine” because it is a word that embodies the creative process from composing the photo to creating the image.

Also known as the Woolwich Reservoir, Floradale Lake is just north of Elmira Ontario near the village of Floridale.
There was a nice sunset the other night so I drove up and took a few pictures.

Conflicting Messages

Sunset and bridge


I can’t decide if I like this sunset shot or not. I think it is because of the conflicting messages it gives. You have a nice peaceful sunset broken up with the chaotic branches of the trees and then there is the strong lines of the bridge structure. At least it makes you think. Art should do that sometimes. What do you think?

It may be rough and worn but it is still doing it’s job as the front door to a business in St. Jacobs called Artefacts.

Lost Souls


Lost Souls

I found this shed behind a burn out farm house in Elmira. It’s at the same place as the love seat I posted earlier. Amongst the chaotic pile of junk sat these old boots neatly placed as if someone had taken them off – carefully set them aside and went and sat on the old love seat.  Now these lost souls wait patiently  for their owner to return.

Branching Out

Branching Out

I posted this tree once before in B&W. This time there was a beautiful sunset that lined up nicely. This tree is trying to branch out all over the place. I don’t think it’s working to well for it. We can probably learn a lesson here in that if we don’t prune back the unnecessary things in our lives we can end up branching out all over the place and not be very productive.

Antique Pump

Antique Water Pump

Found this antique water pump in St. Jacobs on Sunday when we took a walk around the Village. It’s water pumping days may be over but it’s rustic beauty endures. Anyone know what the BT stands for? I did a quick search but could not find anything.

Love Seat

Love Seat

I was taking some photo’s of an old burnt out house in Elmira and around the back was this old love seat. It makes you wonder about it’s history. Someone picked it out from a store and then it probably was used while entertaining guests in the the old farm house. Now it sits abandoned and broken.
