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 - Ottawa - Reflections

Ottawa - Reflections
Originally uploaded by Alan Norsworthy

We were In Ottawa for a family reunion this weekend.

Not much time to be alone, not much time to wander the mean streets.
While swarms of tourists lined up to take "the shot" of the Parliament Buildings I wanted something different .

What did I do ?
I stole an idea from my friend Doug and looked in the windows, a lot of windows!
Until I saw this.

Glad you could make use of something I passed on, good use of the technique too I might add.
Well done my friend.
