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 - Hark what light through yonder window breaks!

German School - Hark what light through yonder window breaks!

A freezing cold weekend but that didn't stop the intrepid explorer's.

On Saturday Doug, Andrew and I visited the abandoned Speyside school. Seeing two police cruisers waiting at the foot of the driveway when we came out was a little off-putting to say the least. As it turned out they were not interested in us :-)

Today I met up with Jay, Chris and Jeff to visit the German Rd School nr Brantford.

The early light poured in through huge, south facing windows. Of course it had to be captured in Black and White :-)
