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"

Still beautiful

Still beautiful

This last week my wife and I took a mini vacation.
Just the two of us and no particular destination in mind apart from a couple of reservations in small towns north of us.
Long leisurely drives, early dinners and stopping whenever something caught our eye or sparked our imagination.
I really enjoy these times alone with my wife, we get a chance to catch up and to some degree reconnect.
Life can be so hectic and there are so many demands on our time that days like these become more and more important.

Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years. ~Simone Signoret
