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 - Ready

Commie Camera - Ready
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

On Friday I received my new "Commie" Camera, a Kiev 4 Rangefinder which is a Contax clone, complete with a Jupiter-8 50mm f/2.0 lens.
So I was itching to try it out.

I spoiled myself and used a roll of AGFA APX 100 on my road trip with Doug, Grant, Cathy and Pat. We decided to wander the back roads North of Milton ON looking for barns and farm houses. This freshly plowed field caught my attention with its wonderful leading lines.
