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 - The Doors



No not THE "doors" just a pile of old doors in an abandoned barn.

Then again maybe not, when the light hits at a certain angle something magical happens ....

A moment captured on Kodak Tmax 400
developed in Xtol 8.5 min at 21c

Film gives such a different feel to a image, to me it's more alive. A chemical process instead of a digital one.

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

Fabulous composition and subject Alan...the light is amazing! I never got into photography until digital but film shooters remain passionate about film...that I have learned.
