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 - Ribs

Downtown Walkabout - Ribs

One of the umbrella's in "the square", downtown Guelph.
I liked the lines and patterns defined by the ribs.

No words on umbrella's today. It's Fathers Day, for those of you who still have your father with you, give him a call or better yet, a hug. Those of you like me who doesn't, give him a minute of your time and in a quiet place, whisper "Happy Fathers Day Dad"

My dad is resting exactly where he wanted to be and it was my honour to take him there.

Happy Fathers Day Dad

When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. ~Mark Twain, "Old Times on the Mississippi" Atlantic Monthly, 1874
