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"

It's been a hectic couple of weeks.
None more so than this Thanksgiving Weekend.
For this weekend my son David was married, his bride Siobhan,
one of the sweetest, bubbliest, loving people I have ever met.
It wasn't your typical wedding, more of a three day celebration with friends and family.
I managed two out of three ... LOL
To be serious for a moment I turn to George Eliot...
What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life -
to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot
Love and laughter to you both, now and always.
