    My fascination with trees continues. I like them big and I like them small. I like them singly and I like them in a bunch. I like them in color and I like them in black & white too ...

    Photographs are wonderful memories to cherish as life moves along. I have always loved this image of my youngest daughter sleeping in her mother's arms, made more than 20 years ago on B&W film . I wonder though, with the advent of digital photography, how many of these wonderful memories will last? Unless you backup your photographs on separate media and check them every once in a while, there is a good chance they will be lost forever.

    How many of us have older photographs that we cherish for an expression, a 'moment in time', etc but, for some reason or another, was not as appealing in its original capture as we had hoped for ? Well .... consider transforming that original image! This 'spontaneous portrait' of my oldest daughter taken more than 20 years ago on B&W film was enhanced by transforming the scanned film using one of the many apps found in the App Store. You will discover a few gems within the ever growing collection and most of them cost $ 0.99 or a little more. Have a look, start experimenting and have lots of fun!

    The Whiteshell River just above Rainbow Falls. I captured the swollen river on Infrared B&W film some years ago. I learned much about photography working in B & W while living in Sturgeon Falls, ON. As part of the local camera club, I had full access to a fully equipped darkroom which I could visit at anytime of the day or night just down the street where I lived. The American photographer Brett Weston inspired me during my formative years and I contimue to be inspired by his work after all these years. His work was visioniary and his technical ability as a printer was second to none. I recently purchased a copy of 'Photographs From Five Decades / An Aperture Monograph' by Brett Weston, a classic book by a true master.
