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"

But who are you if you destroy a book ?

From my adventures to "the Baden House" on Saturday morning. Everyone has visited this place and I am sure everyone has photographed the old burned bible. However only one visitor and certainly not one of the rurex / urbex crowd would have thought to set it alight.
Even though I am not religious I still think this is sacrilege.

Ian and I met the owner of the property during our visit. Her fear was "Kids" who come to destroy her property, who can blame her?
