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 - Westfield Village - Ghost of Christmas Past ?

Westfield Village - Ghost of Christmas Past ?
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

Last evening a group of us visited Westfield Village for their annual Christmas show.
There was barely enough light in some of the pioneer homes and stores to be able to see let alone make photographs.
This photograph, hand held at 2.5 seconds, was one of those serendipitous moments. I had given up trying to hold the camera steady and took the camera away from my eye before the exposure was complete, this was the result.

"The Ghost of Christmas Past".
