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"

River Crossing - Rockwood

River Crossing - Rockwood

This weekend was chaos.
My son David (a.k.a Big Kid) and his wife asked if they could come over for the weekend and considering how rarely we manage to get together we were delighted.

I had to make a quick trip into Toronto to pick up printer ink and a few bits and pieces but not everything goes as planned. Mother Nature had different idea’s and pounded the Milton – Mississauga area with heavy snow. The resulting accidents made driving a chore.
My return trip wasn’t as bad as it could have been because I already knew where the problems were and skirted around them but David and Siobhan were not so lucky and their drive out from Toronto took 2 ½ hours. They arrived just in time for supper and a pleasant evening watching ‘Skyfall” the new Bond flick.

Sunday rolled around and as David and Siobhan were leaving my other son Greg and his buddy Nick arrived.
Cathy was once again in the kitchen..

Another great meal and conversation around the table then a re-run of “Skyfall” as Greg and Nick had not seen it.
They left at a reasonable time and the rest of the weekend was ours.

A lazy day today as a reward for all the work we did.

All in all a great weekend “Family Day” this time the family showed up :-)

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

Happy Family Day
