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 - U of G - The wedding spot

U of G - The wedding spot

Why this ?
I really don't know.
What I do know is I decided that I needed to photograph this odd structure again.
I had the chance to do a lot today but I decided that I would do a little. While most of my friends were off on a grand adventure I went to the U of G with Dave S. We spent a couple of hours wandering around taking the odd shot here and there talking and sometimes not.
All in all a very relaxing morning I'm glad I did it but I still have not figured out the attraction of this structure ....

I never question what to do, it tells me what to do. The photographs make themselves with my help. ~Ruth Bernhard
