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"

Not my usual Saturday ..

The usual Saturday outing did happen but it was short. Usually there is very little that gets in the way of my Saturday mornings but this one was special.

Grant and Cathy were celebrating a joint birthday Cathy May 4, Grant May 16 so the party was planned for May 10.
Far be it for me to disclose the birthday number but suffice it to say I passed it long ago!

I digress...

The day may have been a bit chilly as a raw wind swept across the open fields but the conversation, the greetings of old friends (and some not so old) was warming as the spring sun.
Everywhere there was laughter and smiling faces hours passed swiftly by ...

Ahh, to be surrounded by friends on a bright spring day is there anything better?

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, for in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed”. ~Khalil Gibran
