Originally from Northern England, Alan Norsworthy has been a photographer since the late 1960's.

He moved to Canada in 1973 and has made Guelph Ontario his home for the last 24 years.

" I remember visiting the CN Tower in the early 70's and the guide said that as far as you could see in any direction is the best farmland in Canada. That comment echoes down the years as I watch subdivisions eat up the landscape."

The area around Guelph offers up a plethora of rural images which Alan captures with his artistic vision. His work covers everything from macro photographs of flowers, sweeping landscapes, historic buildings and old abandoned farms in both colour and Black and White.

"This is where I find my inspiration, I have a need to show people the beauty I see as I walk the woods and fields of Southern Ontario"

Photo of the weekend - Railings

FILM - Railing

Sometimes the gods smile on you.
Sometimes a friend points the way.
I found this little gem of a camera in Ponds Camera in downtown Guelph on Saturday. Mike gave me a free roll of Tmax 100 to try it out so on Sunday morning I did just that.
I liked how the camera reacted under everything I could throw at it. Especially this one, I love the slight flare on the rail posts !
This little camera is a keeper for sure.

Plus I had to figure out the exposures manually and not forget to set things like aperture and speed as well as focus....

Tmax 100 developed in Rodinal
