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"

The way we were, Central GMC

The way we were, Central GMC

Central is where I take my car when it needs 'attention' and every-time I go I see this bright red GMC pickup.
Yesterday I had my Bronica loaded with Fuji Acros B&W film and as I walked past it whispered in my ear "now is the time to make an image of this fine piece of automotive history".
So I did,
I decided before I fired the shutter it needed to be 'sepia toned' and I needed the 2 signs in the image.
I am pleased with the result.

Be still with yourself until the object of your attention affirms your presence.
