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"

Un Autre Monde (Another World)

A change of pace yesterday. Doug, Grant, John and I visited Glen Williams Ontario.
I must say that I have never been in a friendlier place since Lunenberg NS
Even at this 'blah' time of year this is a pretty little town, it's inhabitants elevate it beyond the average.

Here you find an enclave of artists and store owners who are passionate about what they do and it shows.

A breath of fresh air in a world of mediocrity.

What was any art but a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself - life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose. ~Willa Cather
